Young Man wins The Deli's Best of Chicago 2010 Emerging Artist Poll!

Chicagoans and Chicagoers!

After a seizure inducing 2 months of polling and voting and churning numbers, we can finally say: "HABEMUS POLL WINNER!"

Congrats to mellow psych folker Young Man, who sealed the win thanks to 2 top jurors votes (3 points each), and to Dastardly and White Mistery, who placed second and third thanks to their fans vote. Here's a picture of the Young Man also known as Colin Caulfield.



Thanks to all the jurors and the bands and the fans who helped us put together this list of artists. Please don't take it too seriously (but not too lightly either!), we see it as a fun, playful way to give exposure to deserving emerging local artists.

Canasta win Deli Chicago Best of 2010 Fans' Poll! Overall results out soon.

Congrats to orchestral pop sextet Canasta for winning our Chicago Best of 2010 fans' poll. After a seriously tight race the band preceded charming and somewhat quirky rootsy combo (another sextet!?!) Dastardly and Soft Speaker and their songs ranging from the mellow to the rocking. Here's the Fans' Poll Top Ten - thanks to all the bands for spreading the word about it! The composite chart results (including the vote of our jury of scene makers listed here) will be out later this week, so be sure to check back for the overall winners!
