US Singer and songwriter Caroline Spence from Charlottesville, Virginia is back with a new self-produced album, ‘Spades and Roses’, out via Tone Tree Music last March, 3rd.
Acclaimed after the release of her previous album, ‘Somehow’, as one of the most interesting Stone Country artist around by the popular magazine Rolling Stone, she recorded her new album under the guidance of producer Neilson Hubbard in East Nashnille in Nashville, Tennessee, the city she moved because of her vocation into the American country music.
A contemporary instance into a genre out of time and nowaday a lot considered possibly only into the borders of the United States of America, the soft soprano went on into this second release into making a true depict of what’s actually the actual culture of what has been defined through the years as ‘outlaw country’. What Caroline Spence made it’s actually literature. Their songs, lucky combinations between her soft and at the same time concrete voice and a dreamy folk arranged in a very simple way country music, are at the same time as much pop because easy-listening than poignant and dense, full of relevant contents. Songs in which she substantially does what’s a storytelling about heavy and deep (despite you could define them like they were actually ordinary) human experiences.
Fatalist and hard-experienced at the same time, ‘Spades and Roses’ it’s definitely a robust album into the genre, but I’m not wrong if I came to say you could avoid it if you’re not interested into the genre and you’re looking to something sound not so necessearily vintage.
