Spencer Ambrose (singer-songwriter, musician, producer) was born into a family with deep musical roots and grew up in the Desruisseaux Evangelical church. From a very young age he was deeply involved in different activities relating to music such as the church choir. At age fifteen to sixteen there about, he developed a keen interest in the rhythm guitar, but soon realized that this was a dead-end venture due to the fact that he is a left hander. After much frustration in trying to play the guitar as a right-handed player, he gave up. However, he could not get over it and kept going back to the instrument and getting the same result. One day from sheer frustration, he lifted the box guitar attempting to play, and was about to smash it on the balcony’s railings; when suddenly right about that time, it flashed through his mind to turn the guitar upside down. This was a break through and he realized that was the answer. He had conquered what seemed impossible!
For months he kept this a secret from family and friends with the aim of surprising them. Imagine their surprise when he played his first piece in church. From then on, he soared in that field and extended to playing the bass guitar. He has composed numerous original songs and recorded two CDs; one Christmas and another with various gospel styles. He has also hosted concerts Island wide. Cadence and Zouk music are his preferences followed by Reggae music.
Spencer is a seasoned musician, songwriter and vocalist, and his inclusion on the Victory Sounds ‘Gospel Revolution’ CD is good news to us and to his numerous fans who have heard his brand of Zouk and Cadence gospel songs can attest to. His two songs “Bye Bondye La Jwa” and “Luau Dyea” are amazing fusion of Zouk and Cadence and will surely have all Kweyol music lovers tapping their feet while the lyrics are all about the need for us to give all the glory and praises to God.
Spencer Ambrose loves God and thanks Him for this gift He has blessed him with. He thanks God for his wife and family who has been his greatest encouragement and given their unwavering support in helping him harness this gift.
Be blessed in Jesus’s name.
