Best Music Poll 2013

By PHOENIX STAFF  |  December 12, 2013



Maybe the best indication of Old Soul’s appeal is that they didn’t do a whole lot this year and still took home the Folk category. After a terrific self-titled debut, released in August 2011, the band, fronted and directed by Mike O’Hehir, experienced a slow build of attention, demanded by an earthy, grounded, direct approach to songwriting.

This year, they’ve largely been hunkered down, working on their follow-up album and touring the country, popping up for a collaboration with Sara Hallie Richardson here, an appearance on 207 there. With any luck, the next we hear from them will be a new work to consider for the new year. Here’s guessing that it doesn’t sound anything like the first record, and that should be a very good thing. |

Runners-up: Max Garcia Conover, Lisa/Liza, Herbcraft
