What is The Deli?
The Deli Magazine is an independently owned website run by musicians and music writers, covering local music scenes (thus far: NYC, LA, Nashville, Chicago, SF, Boston, Austin, Portland, Philly and New England).
The Deli also publishes a quarterly printed publication exclusively focused on the bands and the artists that are part of the NYC and LA music scenes.
The primary goal of The Deli is to expose local musical artists that have not yet reached a level of international fame: this is why all of our printed articles feature up and coming bands and singer-songwriters (while our websites also cover the most popular breakout bands) .
The secondary goal is to inform and advise the local community of musicians on any other matter related to making music, from recording it to promoting it and performing it. You will find this kind of information in our Delicious Audio Blog and Listings section.
CD Submission Policy
The Deli New England only reviews music from artists based in the SF Bay Area and its surroundings.
At this time we only accept digital submission through our CD Submission System here.
For added exposure, you can post mp3s and a blurb about your band on the local Open Blog.

Michael Spencer- Contributor
He's often called "Five-O" and "NARC" at shows due to reverse hippie discrimination against short haircuts on men over 200 lbs. He preferes live and imperfect to recorded and perfect. He has great reverance for all musicians as he cannot play a single note on a single instrument (hence the photography) In his spare time, he has a real job. See his photography here: http://www.photoshelter.com/c/viscereview
