By The Editors | April 7, 2020 | Lifestyle


Best Local Visual Artist: John L. Hill

John L. Hill is the next big thing: Not only is he taking the world by storm through his amazing portraits—which are owned by the likes of Steve Harvey, Mike Tyson and Dr. Dre—but he’s also shaking up how younger generations view art. This is one trailblazer you’re going to want to follow. @jlhill_art

Best Local Singer-Songwriter: Alex Guthrie

America fell in love with this singer-songwriter on NBC’s The Voice, but Atlanta had him first! Alex Guthrie combines soul, folk and rock for a unique sound that has earned him an impressive fan base. Now, this hometown hottie is taking his show on the road, touring the Southeast until the end of June. @alexguthrie

Best Local Athlete: Emily Sonnett

Last year, America watched as the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team won the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and Marietta native Emily Sonnett was one of seven defenders on the record-breaking team. How’s that for a hometown hero? @‌emilysonnett

Best Local Band: Electric Avenue

The city’s best cover band knows how to rock. Take a trip back to the ‘80s with the 20-year touring vets for a killer pop tribute—think bands like Duran Duran, Tears for Fears and Wham!—for what’s guaranteed to be the night of your life. With an insanely impressive tour history to back it—we’re talking sharing stages with music legends like Pat Benatar and Kid Rock, to name a few—plus the honorary title of being the last band to ever play at Turner Field, there’s no one else that knows how to capture an audience like Electric Avenue. Rock on. @electricave80s
