The ever-changing local music scene continues to evolve in Columbus, with different bands ebbing and flowing across our annual Top 10 list of musical talent. This year, our readers and contributors picked the nationally known Lydia Loveless to return to the top of the charts.

Loveless had a big year in 2016 with the release of new album Real back in August. The album has received high praise, including a great writeup from NPR, where music critic Jewly Hight stated that “This is a side of Loveless we haven’t heard. By finessing her musical ideas and illustrating how she processes prickly emotions, she’s created a rich alternate reality.”
