Best Emerging NYC Folk/Americana Artists: The National Reserve, Margaret Glaspy, Bailen + 11 more!

Our Best of NYC poll for Folk and Americana artist ended yesterday and the winners are in! 

READERS' POLL WINNERS: THE NATIONAL RESERVE

Emerging New York City folksters, The National Reserve, who won the "popular vote," are mixing things up in the NYC scene by delivering a dose of much needed southern twang. Merging blues, rock, folk and country, their 2015 EP, "Easy Does It," is a solid slice of Americana, enriched by powerful and expressive vocals. Lead singer and guitarist, Sean Walsh, has this sort of storyteller voice that will rope you in and make you believe you are at a Honky Tonk in Nashville. Judging from their impressive 2016 live record, this is the kind of band you need to see on a stage, and you'll have the opportunity to do just that on February 16 at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.

OVERALL POLL CATEGORY WINNER (READERS + JURORS): MARGARET GLASPY

As you SHOULD know by now, there is also a winner of the composite chart for each category tackled in our polls. The composite chart also takes into account the votes of the local jurors (mostly bloggers and local venue bookers) who picked all the nominees in our list.

Sumptuous songwriter Margaret Glaspy is the winner of this category's overall poll - we covered her already many times, and her album 'Emotions and Math' made it in our "Best NYC Records of 2016 List" in our latest print issue.

We also need to mention Bailen, who was our Artist of the Month not long ago and placed second in the overall chart, with a high score both from the jury and the readers - well done guys!

The National Reserve brings authentic Americana to City Winery tonight (06.21)

Genuine Americana bands are few and far between in NYC's indie scene, and The National Reserve may be among the most authentic of them all. Their 2015 EP Easy Does It should hit all the right spots for anyone yearning for Western (and Southern) sounds. Twangy guitars, blusey overtones and shuffling drums are arranged into compelling songs that merge blues-rock, folk and country.  Lead-singer/guitarist Sean Walsh also has the perfect ammount of scruffiness to his voice that adds the necessary character to the stories he tells. The National Reserve played at The Rough Trade NYC on June 8, ad tonight will perform at City Windery within a tribute to the music of Merle Haggard.. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
