Any band that breaks out of Detroit inherits their fair share of cred, but that reputation isn’t just handed out around town: it’s hard earned. Amy Gore & Her Valentines are another in a long line of Motor City bands that deserve your attention.

There’s a 50/50 chance that every time someone compares Amy Gore to Chrissie Hynde, Amy slaps her computer and says “F*ck! Not again.” Comparisons like that can be as much of a burden as they are a compliment, but it’s pretty hard to avoid that statement when you listen to some of Gore’s vocals, but of course, she’s more than just a likening to another vocalist. Gore’s songwriting and musicianship stands on its own.

Amy pulled together a team of talented musicians that boast resumes listing Wanda Jackson, The Von Bondies, and T-Bone Burnett, just to name a few. They just released their first album together, In Love. It’s a clean, cutting, and powerful collection of timeless rock and roll.
