Springhorn's place of origin is not known, but New Jersey is a good bet.
Marvel Comics continuity
The Decepticons used the singer's popularity to their advantage, sabotaging a concert in an unknown city in northwestern Oregon. Shortly after the show began, they placed a power siphon over the stage to convert the music and the crowd's roars of applause into energon. This had the unfortunate side effect of sucking away most of the music, until a team of Autobots led by Bumblebee foiled the plan by snapping the siphon's cable. This prompted the Decepticons to counter-attack.
When a stray cluster bomb damaged Springhorn's stage rigging, the Autobot Hoist popped up in the middle of the concert to stop it from falling and repair it. The easy-going Springhorn explained the giant robot as simply part of the show.
