Allison Bencar/Maura Rogers & the Bellows/Myth and Company 

When: Sat., Sept. 5, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $5
Cleveland native Allison Bencar, having tapped into the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll at a young age, has always been a singer. Her most recent album, last year’s First Call, shows off a wide range of songwriting chops -- the delicate/angry strain of lost love in “Sorry,” the meandering melody of “Broken Porch,” the upbeat opener “First Call.” Throughout it all, Bencar distinguishes herself from other Americana singers, opting for depth and richness in even her simplest lines. “Karen Carpenter was actually huge for me. She made me feel good about having a low voice. As a little girl I felt like she sang with her whole heart,” she has said. (Eric Sandy)
