Most Underrated Artist
2nd Place: Sire FNS | 3rd Place: PeanutGallery
As in past years, this award is something of a paradox. Elora Valdez and the members of her Gasoline Alley band are at the top of the polls for each of their instruments (vocalist, guitarist, bassist and drummer), but still represent on the underrated ballot. Whether it's an effective rallying of the voter base or some low-stakes gerrymandering, Elora & Gasoline Alley are a teen pop-rock band with considerable talent. Only 16-years-old, Valdez displays her six years of experience in front of the mic on a library of '80s juke hits and bar-rock anthems of her own accord.
