Best of NYC 2014 - Open Submission Results for ALT FOLK

Gals and lads, here are the results for the last category of our Best of NYC Year End Poll for Emerging Artists: it's ALT FOLK! This is a genre that is rising in NYC, and that is producing some very interesting new bands dedicated to reinventing the American roots music. Kudos to Bonsai, who is also the band that received the highest score overall from our jury, and therefore has earned our NYC Artist of the Month banner.

Total submissions in this category: 26

Jurors: Jason Behrends (The Deli Chicago), Jordannah Elizabeth (The Deli SF), Paolo De Gregorio (The Deli NYC)

Artists qualified to the next stage (i.e. the Readers' Poll, starting later this week):

1. Bonsai (8.33 out of 10)


2. Johnnie Lee Jordan (7.16)


3. Viktor Longo (7)


Honorable Mentions (scores above 6.5)

Cave Cricket, Johnny Lewis, Jacknife Sympathy, Jesus On The Mainline, Dallas Heron, Bay Uno, The Slack Tide.

This is it as far os open submission results! As soon as we'll have all the bands uploaded in the system, the Best of 2014 Readers' Poll can begin!
