"Caroline Spence is a must-see, must-hear up and coming singer-songwriter. When you listen to her music, it is almost impossible to believe that she is just seventeen. Her lyrics are poetic and insightful -- wise beyond her years -- and her melodies pull you in and take you along for the whole ride. When she sings, I fall right down into her songs, and when she is finished, I find myself looking again and again to the artist on the stage, expecting to see someone much closer to my age." --Terri Allard
"Spence's voice is truly colorful, an emotional sound that needs little in the way of accompaniment. Hearing her sing is like getting a hug from someone you love." -- David T. Roisen of the Cville Weekly.
"Caroline Spence writes songs of brilliance and deep beauty. Don't come to hear her just so you can say, 'Oh, I saw her when....' but come hear Caroline sing so you can experience the joy of her songs." -- Gravity Lounge website
