Amanda Marshall
We gave it a B+

The first single from her eponymous album is a well-crafted pop throwback to the story song (remember ”The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia”?) about a battered woman who ditches her husband. Employing a husky voice that builds in intensity, the 23-year-old Amanda Marshall delivers the empowering lyrics of ”Birmingham” with an impassioned edge. B+
