Best of 2014 Poll for Emerging Toronto Artists: FINAL RESULTS! 1. Teenage kicks, 2. Laura Cole, 3. Sun K





Best of 2014 Poll for Emerging Toronto Artists: FINAL RESULTS! 1. Teenage kicks, 2. Laura Cole, 3. Sun K

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging Toronto Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and rather complicated) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair!

Congrats to loud rock duo Teenage Kicks (pictured and streaming below) for winning the aggregate chart (see below) and therefore becoming The Deli Toronto's first Emerging Artist of the Year! Because of this they'll be featured in our SXSW print issue (10k copies of it will be distributed in Austin during Music Week - read last year's edition here).

Thumbs up to retro-pop starlet Laura Cole and Lou Reed-esque quintet Sun K, also winners of our Readers and Fans Poll, who placed respectively second and third.

In case you are wondering how our poll works, here's a quick explanation:

1. First, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees.
2. Then we polled a list of 20+ Toronto scene expert (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each.
3. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers and writers.

We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtleties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music Toronto produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!
