Spencer Scharf is a local multi instrumentalist who has a repertoire of over 500 cover songs, most of them in the Folk/Rock/Contemporary genre.
While the Folk and Blues multi-instrumentalist has more than 400 cover songs in his repertoire, it was his 3rd album, I Can’t Hide (2014), that began Spencer’s road as a songwriter.
Currently in the studio recording material for his 4th album to be released in Spring 2017, he regularly performs at a variety of events and venues, including festivals, pubs, children’s events, art shows, community and private events, such as Ottawa Bluesfest, CityFolk (FolkFest), and many City of Ottawa events. He’s the organist for the Carleton University Ravens Men’s hockey team, and has been featured on CTV Morning Live, Rogers Daytime TV, CBC & CKCU radio.
“One of the most gifted, young musicians in Ottawa is Spencer Scharf. He’s a multi-instrumentalist who dabbles in blues, folk, folk-rock and indie-rock. He’s also a rarity – a finger-plucker on the guitar…let Scharf teach you a lesson on fine music.” – Ben Yung, The Revue.
