We are nearing the end of this year's Deli Philly Best Emerging Artists Poll. After compiling the jurors', readers'/fans' and writers' votes for the Alt Rock category, congrats go out to Curtis Cooper! The Philly songwriter caught our attention towards the end of 2015, and then truly emerged on the local music scene last year with the release of his debut Laughing In Line. The album begins in a more radio-friendly manner, but as you delve deeper into the cuts, it becomes apparent that gifted artist has a much more diverse musical palette that we predict will only expand as time goes on. BTW: We absolutely flipped over the video of his powerful performance of the previously unreleased single "2016," which you can view below.
And coming in a very close race for second and third are the good time boys of Mumblr and the pot-lovin', rockin' ladies of Marge. We'll also be back very soon with our final Readers'/Fans' Poll for the categories of Hip Hop/Funk/Electronica, so stay tuned!
