SecretFangirls.com Interview Spencer Sutherland

Spencer Sutherland has been having a breakthrough year!  He made it to the finals of the Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star competition,  thanks to the dedication of his fan base.   Spencer was selected as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month and made his national TV debut on the TODAY show.   His new single, “Selfish,” has been climbing up the charts since it was released.  We love his signature blend of R&B and pop music!

Spencer was one of a few performers selected to perform on the Festival Stage hosted by Radio Disney during Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in NYC.  We spoke with Spencer after his performance and found out what fans can look forward to from him next, and what boyband’s album he’d take with him on a road trip!  Watch our interview below and get to know more about Spencer!

THE HEYDAZE Announce Summer Tour Dates!

NYC based trio THE HEYDAZE, part of the iHeartRadio & Macy’s Rising Star lineup for 2014,  haven’t been around for that long but we have no doubts that you’ll be hearing a lot from these guys in the future.  THE HEYDAZE just had their first headlining show at New York’s Webster Hall last week – and it was a sold out show!

We love their catchy pop sound and energy. (Seriously, listen to “Little Bandit” once and you’ll be singing it for the next several days.  We guarantee it.)   Watch the video for their new single “Young Blood” below!

Like what you hear?  You can visit THE HEYDAZE’s Facebook page to download their songs (for free!)  Or catch THE HEYDAZE on the Northeast leg of Jesse McCartney’s “In Technicolor” Tour this summer.   We saw them open for AJR earlier this year, and they are just as fun live as their music.

Check out the dates below!   They hope to see you and all of your beautiful souls there.
