Tyler Spencer (born January 22, 1972), also known by his stage name Dick Valentine, is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He is the lead vocalist, main lyricist, and co-founder of the rock band Electric Six.[1][2]


Spencer founded Electric Six in 1996, at which time the band was named The Wildbunch, but this was changed due to complications with another band of the same name.[3] He is also one of the two members of the dance group Evil Cowards,[4] is one of the vocalists for hard rock band Bang Camaro, and was temporarily a member of the short-lived band The Dirty Shame. He released his first solo album, Destroy The Children, under the Dick Valentine moniker on May 14, 2012.[5] [6]
