Nashville Best of 2015 Readers' Poll Results! 1. Smooth Hound Smith, 2. Terrible and Damned Rivers (tied)

Fresh off the polls, the results for our Artist of the Year Readers' poll are in! We'd like to thank everyone who voted in support of their favorite artists, and a hardy congrats to everyone who made the poll this year!

1. All of our top nominees brought their A-game when it came to letting fans know about the poll, but the long arm of Smooth Hound Smith (pictured above) had the reach to snag them the top spot. This bluesy-folk duo had a busy 2015-2016 between putting out a new album, releasing a couple live videos while maintaining a demanding tour schedule, and even dropping by the Daytrotter studio to record a killer session. Now they can add winning the top spot as the Deli Nashville Artist of the Year to that list!

--- 

2/3. If anyone ever tells you that a single vote doesn't mean anything, point them right here to our TIE for second place. Terrible came out swinging with a commanding early lead, but Damned Rivers wasn't about to sit back and let the poll slide by them. Both groups put up a strong fight for the top spot in our Alt-Folk category and, listening to these groups side-by-side, we can't help but think this is a great chance to get two top-notch bands talking to each other about sharing the stage sometime. Or maybe Damned Rivers could make an appearance on that rad-ass live series Terrible has been producing. How about it, guys?

---

4. In fourth place is electronic dance-freakout project Night Auditor. Their live show is not to be missed, and we happen to know that they're working on funding a new album, so how about you click on over to their Bandcamp and congratulate them by picking up a tape copy of the excellent Romance EP?

---

5. In fifth place is the bluesy-as-all-getout Bentley Caldwell. He released a way-solid album back in 2014, which you should check out at your earliest convenience.

--

Again, congrats to everyone who was included! Our nominees went out of their way to promote the poll, and they certainly deserve your attention.

New England Readers/Fans' Poll Results! 1. Danny Henry, 2. Cactus Attack, 3. Chaser Eight

The Deli New England Readers' Poll ended last week, and, after a few days churning the numbers and checking the votes, we can finally announce the winner and runners up!

1. Congrats to quirky Connecticut singer songwriter and pianist Danny Henry (pictured), who, nominated by one of our jurors (list coming soon), went to extreme(ly cold) lengths in promoting our poll, and broke the epic barrier of 1k votes to head the pack of nominated artists: he's The Deli New England's Readers Artist of 2015! Check out his single "Meliss" below, that manages to blend New Order and the sound of Motown.

---

2. In second place, the roots music collective Cactus Attack surrounding Ryan "Stonewall" Jackson fought Danny tooth and nail, getting very close to the 1k vote threshold. These guys also shot a (hilariously earnest) video promoting our poll, check it out - we should totally do a contest of the videos next time! Cactus Attack released their charming and full of character self-title debut album in 2011 (you can listen to it here) but their Facebook profile shows them busy working on a follow up.

---

3. In third place (with 548 votes) we have a female fronted alt rock group that, with their new single "Step Into The Light" (streaming) seems to be developing shoegazer overtones: Chaser Eight. Also hailing from Connecticut, this is a group whose music has been featured on TV and various radio station. Expect a new album release in the next few weeks.

---

4. A few points below, at 540, stands our fourth place bands, Eldridge Rodriguez, a Boston quartet that plays rather epiuc rock with both electric and electronic elements. You can listen to theirr latest LP "The Castrati Menace" (released in October 2015) here.

--

Also, don't forget to check out the top ten artists below, they all promoted this poll hard and deserve your attention for doing so!

5. The Hempsteadys
6. Mission Zero
7. Carissa Johnson
8. Able Days
9. Ceschi
10. Dr. Martino

AND! If you are really eacher to go in depth, here are the results organized by genre!

Andrew Adkins invites us into his Glass Castles

Glass Castles isn’t an album about reinventing the wheel. It’s an album about analyzing the wheel, studying its materials, seeing what makes it turn, and then taking the knowledge, tweaking it, and updating it with a modern frame of reference. The instrumentation is pure classic Nashville country—and it works beautifully. Adkins’ voice ranges from Dylan-esque to a hiss almost reminiscent of Marc Bolan, but far more confident and in-your-face than the sexual purrs of the God of Glam.

Andrew Adkins is a musician who knows what he’s talking about, and he’s more than ready to show you his sources. Get familiar with Glass Castles below and be sure to keep Askins on your radar. -Austin Phy
