His first album "It's alright" reached number 10 on the September 2010 Euro Americana charts.
He won the alt-country section of the Tamworth National Songwriting Competition in 2017 and had three songs in the 2018 finals.
Originally from the Central West of NSW and now based in Sydney, Spike infuses home town/country themes with an urban edge. He is an accomplished finger-picking guitarist in the style of Doc Watson and plays ‘rack’ harmonica. His original songs have a strong Australian presence but with universal themes.
He has supported international acts including Peter Rowan and his Bluegrass Band, Kristina Olsen, John McCutcheon as well as local acts such as Jim Conway’s Big Wheel. Spike often performs with the two-piece band the Open Hearted Strangers, playing a mix of original songs, blues and country.
