While Caroline Spence may not look like one of the road-hardened troubadours of America's past, with the release of Spades & Roses, the young songwriter from Charlottesville Virginia proves she is every bit as serious. Having won numerous songwriting awards from industry mainstays like the Kerrville Folk Festival and American Songwriter Magazine, and garnered nods and admiration from both Miranda Lasmbert and her fellow writers in the Nashville underground, Caroline has delivered a record to meet the expectation: Quite simply, 11 songs of gorgeous Americana that remind us of why we fell in love with the genre in the first place.
"...evoking the country quiver of Emmylou Harris circa Pieces of the Sky with her own unique, breathy breaks." (Rolling Stone).
"Spence has an angelic singing voice that is enchanting and devastating, elevating her diaristic writing to breathtaking heights" (No Depression).
