Chicago Best of 2015 Readers' Poll Results! 1. Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orquesta, 2. Burnside & Hooker

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 congratulations to everyone who made the poll this year!

1. Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orquesta (pictured above) was the fan favorite this year and for good reason. 2015 saw the Cumbia Jam band conquer SXSW and release a thrilling debut album, Dos Santos.


2. Burnside & Hooker was a close second in the reader's poll but had no less of an impressive year. 2015 saw this blues and jazz influenced Americana band release, All The Way To The Devil, their sophomore album after a sucessful Indiegogo campaign.


3. Andrew Sa & His Organic Sound released their debut concept EP, For Tonight, on December 1st, and their beautiful sound nearly avoids classification. This collective of talented musicians prides itself on simple and authentic music and that is clearly garnishing them a termendous amount of support.


4. Jude Shuma is at the forefront of a Psychedelic revival in Chicago and 2015 saw him release his debut EP, Insomnium on Tiny Meow Records.


5. The Bribes round out this year's Top 5 in the Reader's Poll with their refreshing vintage rock sound. The Logan Square band released their latest album, Nobody Got Anywhere, in 2015.


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

Thanks to everyone who shared and voted, and remember to keep an eye on the Deli year-round for all the freshest coverage on new music coming from Chicago!
