With his edgy style and innovative beats, jazz and blues drummer Isaiah Spencer has carved out a unique reputation in Chicago and on the national and international music stage. Not only has the North Side native performed at the Chicago Blues Festival, the Englewood Blues Festival, Jazz Showcase, the House of Blues and Rosa’s, he has taken the stage to perform with legends like Fred Anderson, William Parker and Ernest Dawkins.

The Chicago Tribune’s Music Critic, Howard Reich, has called his sound “propulsive” and “incendiary.” Chris Searle, culture writer for the Morning Star said his sound is “fiery.”

Since 1998 Isaiah has been an active figure in the Chicago, national and international music scene. His talents have led him to opportunities in which he has graced the stage with jazz and blues greats Buddy Guy, Pine Top Perkins and Eddie Clearwater and jazz luminaries such as Clark Terry, Roy Hargrove, Tom Harrell, Donald Harrison, Wynton & Branford Marsalis and James Moody. He also has performed with others such as Nicole Mitchell, Mark De Clive Lowe, Malachi Favors, Roscoe Mitchell, Cyrus Chestnut, Corey Wilkes, Maurice Brown, Vijay Iyer and has also toured with William Parker, Ernest Dawkins and many others in creative musics.
