The Deli Philly's Best of 2015 Readers'/Fans' Poll Results!

The Deli Philly's Best of 2015 Readers'/Fans' Poll Results!

The results are in for The Deli Philly’s Fans’/Readers’ Year End Poll! We'd like to thank everyone who voted in support of their favorite artists, and a big congrats to everyone who made the poll this year!

1. When it came to rallying fans for support, alt rockers Howlish were like lightning out of the starting gate, and never looked back. The quartet, which consists of Mark Watter, Karl Germanovich, Taylor Cullen and Brendan Sweeney, made a name for itself in 2015 with the release of 0uter (available via Sniffling Indie Kids).

2. This year’s Open Submission Poll Winners, YJY, fought valiantly, and certainly grabbed the attention of our writers and hopefully our readers with their fuzz-pop anthems. Take a listen to the band's debut EP Couch Surfin USA.

3. Hurricane Hoss, a.k.a. Sarah Williams Larsen, proves that this city still has a lot of sass and country left in it. Larsen is an award-winning contest fiddler. Having lent her skills to Philly favorite sons like Dr. Dog and Ben Arnold, the gypsy-cowgirl sounds ready to step out into the forefront.

Honorable Mention: Shout out to I Think Like Midnight! The instrumental rock outfit features Andrew Chalfen (The Trolleyvox), Dean Sabatino (Dead Milkmen), and J. Robert Lennon (The Starry Mountain Sweetheart Band).

Thanks to everyone who shared and voted, and remember to keep an eye out for The Deli Philly’s final composite for the Best of 2015 Emerging Artists!

Much love,
