By Hailey Sager  ,  April 09, 2014

By Hailey Sager--- Staff Writer, South/Southeast sat down with Spencer Sutherland before he kicked off The Dangerous Tour in support of Before You Exit back in March! Spencer Sutherland is a pop singer/song-writer on the rise and you definitely want to get to know him now! talked with Spencer about his must haves on tour and what it was like walking the red carpet at the Vampire Academy premiere in Los Angeles!

Musiqtone: Hi Spencer! Thanks so much for talking with us at Musiqtone. Would you mind telling our readers a little bit about yourself, and what got you involved in pursuing music?
Spencer Sutherland: Hey! Thank you so much for having me! Ever since I can remember, I've always HAD to sing. Even in high school, I would play at all kinds of restaurants (mostly for free). Mexican, Italian, Greek... You name it, I played it! After I graduated high school, I got an opportunity to audition for a lady who is now my manager! Five days later, she put me on a show opening for Big Time Rush in front of 20,000 people! That's when I knew I had to do it!

Musiqtone: You just recently attended the Vampire Academy premiere in Los Angeles. How was it? What was it like walking the red carpet with so many of your entertainment peers?
Spencer: I had SO MUCH fun at the Vampire Academy premiere! It was so crazy and awesome to have all those cameras flashing at me because that's something you see on TV! It was also great to meet and hang with a lot of people in the movie!

Musiqtone: You just wrapped The Dangerous Tour with Before You Exit and Plug In Stereo. What are your essentials you must have with you on the road with you?
Spencer: The essentials that I must have on the road are: my headphones, hoodie, and Quest protein bars! All for obvious reasons. :)

Musiqtone: You always seem to select great songs to cover on your Youtube channel! What is the selection process like for picking your cover songs?
Spencer: Thank you so much! When I pick a cover song, it's one that I hear on the radio and it sticks out to me. After I choose the song, I take it and think "if this was my song, how would it go?" The outcome is usually different sound!

Musiqtone: I always love seeing your retweets from your fans around the country that hear "Heartstrings" on the radio. What was going through your head the first time you saw a tweet where someone heard your song on the radio?
Spencer: Thank you so much! That's crazy right?!?! I actually heard my song the first time it played on the radio. It was the most unreal feeling in the world. To have something that you dream your whole life about actually happen before your eyes is incredible! I will never forget that night. I was out at a diner with my manager and family, and the diner owner blasted it over the sound system! It was so crazy, and to this day doesn't seem like real life!

Musiqtone: You seem to be jet setting around the country, working on new music. When can we expect to hear some of these new songs?

Spencer: I performed new original music on The Dangerous Tour. If you weren't at a show, you can expect new music this spring! :) I'm so excited to share with people what I have been hard at work on!

Musiqtone: If you were stranded on a desert island, what would be one album you would have to have with you?
Spencer: I think that I would have to take "Red" by Taylor Swift. The album has such a variety of emotions in the song along with great pop music.

Musiqtone: Thanks so much for talking with us today, Spencer! Is there anything else you would like to say to your fans and our Musiqtone readers before we go?
Spencer: Thank you guys so much for having me! I would like to say that I really LOVE my fans so much. Everything that you do for me means so much. I couldn't do it without you.
