Amtmandens og TNCF presenterer Caroline Spence + support Charlie Whitten onsdag 13. november
Dørene åpnes: 20:00
Caroline Spence har lenge vært ansett som en av de best bevarte hemmelighetene i Nashville. Dette vil det trolig bli en slutt på etter albumet "Mint Condition" slippes 3.mai. Hun er nå signert på Rounder Records og selveste Emmylou Harris gjør en gjesteopptreden på en av låtene.
Vi anbefaler albumet "Spades & Roses" på det aller groveste og gleder oss enormt mye til å høre 'Mint Condition'.
«Highlights like “All the Beds I’ve Made” and “Southern Accident” showcase Spence’s graceful vocals and haunting lyrical details that invite listeners into her tales of trouble and turmoil. On “Softball,” she spins deft music biz allegory; on “I Can’t Complain,” she steps away from her troubles while nodding to East Nashville pioneer Todd Snider. Spence’s latest is an open-hearted, intimate singer-songwriter collection that’ll hold up for decades.»

«With her sophomore album Spades & Roses, Caroline Spence has proven she’s more than capable of hanging with the best of Nashville’s sizable singer-songwriter community. The follow-up to Spence’s 2015 debut Somehow, Spades & Roses doubles down on what earned that initial collection comparisons to Americana heavyweights like Emmylou Harris: refined lyricism, careful attention to melody and unvarnished, vulnerable storytelling. Standout track “Softball” is especially timely, tackling music industry sexism with clever wordplay and nimble, crystalline vocals that back up Spence’s claims of being able to “hit one out of the yard.» — ROLLING STONES "12 Great Country, Americana Albums You Probably Didn’t Hear in 2017"
Whitten has previously released a few pieces under his own name but says he "enjoys being sideman just as much as a singer-songwriter." Pretty obvious that he enjoys it when you can catch Charlie playing guitar for Andrew Combs and Becca Mancari. He's also played and sang with Molly Parden, Erin Rae McKaskle, Caleb Groh, Chrome Pony, and his current side project, Stationwagon; a band of tall songwriters and friends featuring Mark Fredson, Pete Lindberg, Andrew Hunt, Brett Resnick. You can hear bits a pieces from his heroes Jim Croce, Don McLean and Harry Nilsson in his songs. There's a bit of Rayland Baxter in his arrangements as well.
