Caroline Spence
The third full-length from Caroline Spence, Mint Condition is an album narrated by people in various states of searching: alone on faraway highways, restless on rooftops in glamorous cities, stubbornly chasing their deepest dreams against all better judgment. With her poetic clarity and precision of detail, the Nashville-based singer/songwriter reveals the risk in setting out on an unconventional path, and subtly makes the case for living your own truth without compromise or fear.

For Spence, the making of Mint Condition was an act of both self-reckoning and discovery. People tell you to write about what you know, but a lot of the time I write about what I dont know, she says. For me songs are a way to ask questions, and sometimes you end up figuring out the answers. Despite some moments of self-doubt, Spence telegraphs a quiet self-assurance, a faith that shell someday embody the essence of the albums title phrasesomething weathered and delicate yet miraculously intact. A lot of these songs come from a very tired-and-worn place, says Spence, lifting a phrase from the title track. Theres a sense of things not going my way and feeling rattled by that, but knowing deep down that its all part of getting to where you need to be.

Having won numerous songwriting awards from industry mainstays like the Kerrville Folk Festival, Spence has long been regarded as a best-kept secret in her scene, earning admiration from esteemed artists like Miranda Lambert and from her own fellow writers in the Nashville underground. Her debut for Rounder Records, Mint Condition follows Spades and Rosesa 2017 release praised by American Songwriter as an album of stunning beauty and lasting impact. In bringing Mint Condition to life, Spence worked with producer Dan Knobler (Lake Street Dive, Erin Rae) and recorded at his Nashville studio Goosehead Palace, landing a guest appearance from Emmylou Harris and enlisting musicians from Spences previous projects and live band. Its wonderful to step into a room full of people who already know me, says Spence. They have this unspoken understanding of my instincts, so it made the whole process really comfortable and collaborative.
