Scene&Heard

Sometimes, there’s just that singer with that voice. That is Derek Spencer, the man behind The Rooster's Crow.

With a deep, soulful voice that immediately demands a crowd’s attention, Spencer’s lyrics draw you into a world of spirituality and sin, and a life of a different, lost time.

The Kentucky Kernel

Growing up in Beattyville, Ky., Derek Spencer could often be found in Standing Rock Church of Christ admiring the singing congregation. The group was a capella with no instruments, and gave Spencer the jolt of inspiration needed to dive into the world of music.
