ROCK STAR OF THE WEEK - SPENCER HUGHES!!!
Senior at South Salem High School
RiverCity Rockers, previously Royals
Guitar and Vocals
Started at RiverCity Rock Star Academy in February 2015
When did you start playing music and why?
I started playing music when I was 10 years old, when I got my first guitar. I really liked listening to Rock n Roll music and I wanted to be a part of it. Guitar was my favorite part of the songs I listened to.
What is your favorite song you've ever played at RiverCity?
My favorite song I've ever played at RiverCity would have to be between ‘Aces High’ by Iron Maiden, ‘Even Flow’ by Pearl Jam or ‘Money’ by Pink Floyd. Each of those songs were amazing choices and they challenged me to be better than I previously was.
What do you like about RiverCity?
I like that everyone at RiverCity is there for a common goal and experience; we all want to bring Rock n Roll back to life in this city and share our passion for the music together.
What are your favorite bands/artists right now?
My favorite bands are always Weezer and Metallica, but apart from that, I've been listening to a lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jack Johnson.
What things do you like to do when you’re not at RiverCity?
When I'm not at RiverCity I'm usually practicing my guitar at home or working on putting together my solo project album that I've been working on for the last three years. It's taking a long time but I'm really excited to see how it turns out when it's finished.
