Best of SF Bay Area 2014 for Emerging Artists: FINAL RESULTS: 1. Down and Outlaws, 2. Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah, 3. Assateague

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging SF Bay Area Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair!

Kudos to garage rockers, Down and Outlaws, our new Deli SF Bay Area Artist of the Year!!!

Thumbs up to the awesome psych- soul band, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah:

And to the great indie-folk band, Assateague:

Here is how it all went down: first, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then we polled a list of 15+ SF Bay Area scene expert (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers. We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtelties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music SF Bay Area produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!
