Spencer Hatcher was raised on a farm in the heartland of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. By the age of five he was singing and playing music. All through middle school and high school, Spencer was involved in music. The Hatcher Boys began during Spencer’s high school years, which consisted of his father (Michael) and two brothers (Dane & Connor). It didn’t take long for the home folks to realize that he had a special gift. His first love was the banjo, but now he is known for his own unique sound, smooth southern drawl and guitar picking. Couple those with his quick smile and his pensive soulful delivery, you can see right away, he’s the real deal. Spencer’s style shines and draws you right in. There is no doubt, performing and playing music was meant for Spencer.

Influenced by some of the greats: Elvis Presley, Garth Brooks, Randy Travis and Johnny Cash, Spencer Hatcher has a sound of his own and is crafting a man’s career in Country Music. “I’ve got an immense amount of respect for all of my heros in music that made this journey long before me. I don’t sound like anyone though, and no one sounds like me. I just want people to appreciate what I’ve worked my whole life creating and am so passionate about.” 

He is a graduate of East Tennessee State University with a major in business administration and a minor in Bluegrass and Country Music. Throughout college, Spencer was active in the local music scene and played in numerous bands. With a developing reputation as a fine entertainer, Spencer soon became a member of Nick Chandler and Delivered, recently honored as a 2019 IBMA Official Ramble Showcase Artist and were on a national tour before COVID struck. It was during this time that Spencer learned a lot of the behind the scenes of music between record deals, recordings, and networking to make contacts that he will have for the rest of his life.

2020 brought Spencer home. His strong country roots called him back to his hometown of Timberville, where he continues to play country music at local venues accompanied by his younger brother and bass extraordinaire, Connor Hatcher. Spencer has a burning desire and dream of making it big in Nashville and Country Music with all of his hometown backing him on his talents.
