About This Performance
Having won numerous songwriting awards from industry mainstays, Charlottesville-raised Caroline Spence has long been regarded as a best-kept secret in the folk/country music industry, earning admiration from esteemed artists like Miranda Lambert and from her own fellow writers in the Nashville underground. This “secret” exploded into the spotlight in 2019 when her third full-length release, Mint Condition, landed on folk charts across the country and Top Americana Albums of the Year lists from publications like Paste and Rolling Stone. In bringing the album to life, Spence worked with producer Dan Knobler (Lake Street Dive, Erin Rae), earning a guest appearance from industry legend Emmylou Harris and enlisting musicians from Spence’s previous projects and live bands. Praised by American Songwriter as “an album of stunning beauty and lasting impact,” Mint Condition showcases Spence’s crystalline vocals and finespun melodies as equally as the ever-expanding depth of her musicality.
