Caroline Spence
The Caroline Spence Band writes and performs music that is progressive folk-rock, with a twist of new wave, a twist of jazz & blues and a twist of pop. The music captures the romance of a bygone era in a modern fusion of styles. The lyrics are poetic, emotive and clever. The vocals are lush, deep and resonant and feature gothic and eclectic multiple harmonies. The set takes the listener on a journey of stories, told in the best folk-fusion style. The vocals go from light and airy to velvet, passionate and powerful. If you are a lover of good music, with eclectic tastes, you will love this band.

Caroline Spence Band have consistently entertained audiences and captured their attention and respect by playing music that is lyrically strong and meaningful, with catchy arrangements, put together in an eclectic and interesting mix that has something for every listener. The Caroline Spence Band have an entertaining stage presence and real rapport with each other.

Caroline's voice is smooth and resonant and will amaze you with her power and range, as well as her emotional and honest delivery. Pauline and Adam add lush harmonies to the mix that are reminicent of October Project and Kate Bush.

"Reminding me of some of the great music that I've heard from the Projekt label...the female vocals/harmonies are especially great...definite ear candy... " - Tim MacAleese, Canadian Rawk Network

"This music instantly brings up images of the Smiths meets the Cowboy Junkies. It is part sixties folk and part twenty-first century rural meets urban adventurism..."- Chris K., Pro Critic Radio

"...A prismatic and charismatic performer with many unique and important things to say." - Danica Nolan, Indiemark

"Rusticated soft rock with finely meshed female vocals.. will make listeners think of the tradition- steeped melodies of Kate and Anna McGarrigle and the October Project." - Listen

"What a beautiful voice she has. It has depth..." - Pete McDonald, Peer - Garageband
