Best Music Poll 2013

By PHOENIX STAFF  |  December 12, 2013



Lilting, poppy, and pretty, South Portland native Amy Allen’s voice is something to celebrate. It belies her years (she’s a student at Berklee College of Music in Boston), lending a sweet edge to radio-friendly songs that deal with broken hearts and new frontiers. Her charming covers of songs such as Robin Thicke’s summer hit “Blurred Lines” and the Radiohead classic “High and Dry” offer surprisingly different perspectives on tracks we thought we knew. As a songwriter, Allen writes tunes that are infectiously easy to sing along with. But sometimes you don’t, just because you don’t want to drown out that beautiful voice. |

Runners-up: Anna Lombard, Kristina Kentigian, Meghan Yates (Reverie Machine)
