Chicago, Il – Inside a sold-out crowded Beat Kitchen in Chicago, fans had come as far as Oregon to get to meet and see soul-pop singer and Pickerington, Ohio native Spencer Sutherland. Several fans had stopped by the venue only to learn that it was previously sold out but decided to wait around in hopes to talk to, get a glimpse of, or hopefully grab an autograph and photo with their favorite singer.

The relatively warm summer weather was only made even warmer inside the Beat Kitchen, where fans of all ages were standing shoulder to shoulder, sweating and waiting together as Sutherland took to the stage. Opening up with his 2018 release “Tell Me”, Sutherland returned to Chicago as the headlining act and quickly had the audience ramped up, as he came out to the stage dancing, sauntering, swaying and singing, while the crowd sang along to every lyric.

Since leaving UK’s The X Factor, the soon to be 28 year old Sutherland has been hard at work writing, recording and touring behind his recent EP release, NONE of this has been about you. The EP contains such singles as “Sweater” and “Freaking Out”, both of which have garnered strong radio airplay and were big fan favorites of the evening. Performing with a three-piece backing band, Spencer even put his soulful spin on Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next”. Spencer Sutherland is poised for a massive breakthrough at any moment, it’s not a matter of IF he will break out anymore, but WHEN. He seems to have found his strong soul-pop voice, and his fan base continues to grow as his music gets on the air more often and people take in his concerts.

Born in Scotland, raised in the United States, based in Chicago. Ian Bardecki is a professional photographer, avid motorcyclist, reader, IT geek, gaming and comic book nerd, who was bathed in music at a young age by his mother who constantly played classical piano in their home. While she also introduced him to the Beatles and Elvis, his father forced on him Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, the local paper boy had him listening to Alice Cooper, his uncle then turned him onto KISS and his first 8 track tape, while his friends turned him onto punk music. Today, his music library ranges from Amadeus Mozart to ZZ Ward and everything in between. Hesitantly agreeing to fill in one night to photograph a concert at a local venue in San Francisco for a friend, was where the accidental love and passion for concert photography was born and hasn’t stopped growing since. As a freelance photographer, Ian has had the honor of working with various artists like, John 5, Sick Puppies, Scott Stapp, Drowning Pool, Anti-Flag and Art of Dying, just to name a few.
