Best Music Poll 2013

DAVE GUTTER (on right) at the 2008 BMP awards.

Am I tired of writing about Dave Gutter? Not hardly. It’s not often you get to closely follow someone’s career in the public eye for 20-plus years in Portland’s public eye and never get bored. Gutter’s combination of excellent vocal control, lyrical ingenuity, and straight-up stage presence remains unparalleled locally and it isn’t hard to figure out why people continue to gravitate to him.

It’s been cool, too, to watch him challenge himself. Check out his Armies project with Toni Sheppard. Think about the distinct nature of Rustic Overtones and Paranoid Social Club and how Gutter can seemingly inhabit different skins depending on the gig. Oh, and he also wrote a few songs with Tedeschi-Trucks in his spare time. Tired of Dave Gutter? Not even close. |

Runners-up: Brant Dadaleares (Whitcomb), Ian Ferrel (Theodore Treehouse), Caleb Aaron Coulthard (Coalsack in Crux)
