WHAT'S NEXT: Now that we’ve finished up the first step of the poll it’s time to reveal the bands nominated by our local jurors. The jurors who gave us their opinions are experts on Portland music - working as promoters, bloggers and with platforms that promote local music. Noone knows the scene better than them. Once all of the bands involved are announced, our viewers will have the chance to cast their votes to determine who will be named The Deli Portland’s Best Emerging Artist of 2013. 

Thanks again to all of the bands who submitted their music and spread the word about the poll, stay tuned for the next phase of the poll.
