Emilia DahlinFrom the opening licks of Emilia Dahlin’s “God Machine,” it’s clear that she’s something special. In a region flooded with singer/songwriters, she stands out with clever storytelling, crisp melodies, and an undeniable passion. She excels at sending her listeners on journeys, and she can bend her acoustic guitar to meet the genre that fits the trip best: sometimes folk, sometimes Latin, sometimes Gypsy jazz. She understands that strings don’t have to be strummed — they can be plucked or struck.

Emilia Dahlin charms her audience to the edge of their seats with her wry smirk and clarion voice — then drops them to the floor with foot-stomping, head-shaking grooves. Her live shows are a lesson in intimacy. Two solid albums and a flare for performance have won her a growing legion of fans based around her Portland home. With a new album set to drop soon and more tour dates to follow, it looks as though Maine may have to share its best-kept secret.
