Best New Voice: Rachael Price of Lake Street Dive
When Rachael Price opens her mouth and lets loose with her cool cannon blast of a voice, you sort of forget to breathe for a few seconds. Price's talent was on display from the opening notes of "Stop Your Crying" on Friday afternoon, and the group around her casually placed these vocals over breezy instrumentals like "What About Me" and "Bad Self Portraits." Normally, you'd expect to her a voice like this singing country, but Lake Street Dive aim closer to Dusty Springfield or Peggy Lee. Based on their ACL response, that seems like a wise move.
