New England Open Submissions Results for The Deli's Year-End Poll 2015 for Emerging Artists

By now, you've probably seen every kind of "Year-End" or "[insert name here]'s Year-in-Review" list imagineable, but this one is way more exciting than anything the mainstream media gods have to say, so listen-up. Near the end of 2015, The Deli invited artsts from every corner of New England to submit their work for our annual year-end poll. After tallying our editors' ratings for the Open Submissions stage, we're delighted to announce the results. Please note: To avoid conflicts, no local editor was allowed to vote for bands in their own scene.

WHAT’S NEXT: 
These results conclude the first phase of the poll. We will soon unveil the artists nominated by our local jurors, and then let our readers and our writers influence the poll with their vote. After all of those votes have been taken into consideration, we'll announce the final overall winners.

Keep creating, keep supporting, and stay-tuned for your chance to vote!

Deli Sneak Peak: Squirrel Flower

Singer-Songwriter Ella Williams, under the moniker Squirrel Flower, is releasing a new album Early Winter Songs for Middle America this Saturday 3/21. She was kind enough to give us a little sneak peak of the album, filled with tastefully short and dreamy songs. Early Winter Songs is a clear and deliberate portrait of Williams’ time in Iowa while attending Grinnell College, before returning to Massachusetts. It sounds damn cold there, I’ll just leave it at that. Mostly a solo electric guitar and her voice, Williams mixes in sparse field recordings that allude to the stark setting that inspired these songs. Lyrically, her style is poigniantly honest and authentic, never cluttering the meaning with strained analogies, just honest observations. It’s an impressive debut, and we’re thrilled that she’s back around Boston. Check out the haunting mostly a'capella track “I Won’t Walk Inside,”  it vividly illustrates the setting that inspired these songs.  You can also stream the charming tune "What Was That," or download the album here after 3/21.  - Paul Jordan Talbot
