Than in 2011, because of personal issues, Spencer stopped writing music , stopped performing, and eventually a year later stopped playing music at all. Feeling overcome with self doubt Spencer gave up on music and in many ways gave up on life.
In 2013 , friend and bandmate Vito Perry ( who had joined Spencer to play bass back in 2007) started jamming again with Spencer and Vito moved back to his natural instrument , The Guitar. Vito, an experienced band front man and songwriter , and Spencer began co-writing songs…and it just started happening. Song after song, after song, next thing you know everything had changed for Spencer emotional and as things picked back up , Vitos father Anthony Perry, veteran drummer, joined the group on percussion and officially The Spencer Nielsen Band was formed ,late summer of 2014. They started working on the album :MellowrottenMusic” . Soon after With the help of a crowdfunding effort thru Indiegogo, SNB was able to presale enough cds and sponsorships to record a full length album in SLC, Utah and mix and master the final product in Oakland , California with producer Matthew Winegar. (MellowRottenMusic) was independent released April 25, 2015 as the Spencer Nielsen Band debut album . It is now available on ITunes for digital download.
