He may well be the hardest working musician in the province.
Jerry Stamp entered a contest a while back, as did many a musician from across the great continent of North America. Fan voting distilled the contestants down to a top 50, of which Jerry was one.
A panel of judges then applied their wisdom and narrowed the group down to five. And still there was Jerry.
Now it’s up to you to decide the winner.
What’s on the line for the person with the most votes here is recording time at Tainted Blue Studios in New York and an official sponsorship from Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings. Kind of a big deal.
What you’re being asked to vote on is your favourite video made by each contestant showing them play the Taylor Guitar with Elixir Strings each of them was sent.
Quite fittingly, Jerry produced his video with help from his fans. He played a bunch of gigs and asked his fans to record him with whatever video capable devices they had and then hand him over the footage. From that he cut together what is now his entry into the final stage of this contest.
You can see the video and vote for it by clicking here.
You can vote once per day per e-mail address, meaning if for some quirky 21st century reason you have more than one e-mail address you can vote more than once per day. Just sayin’.
Jerry is currently holding tight in second place. With your help he can surely make it to first.
So, if you happen to think he deserves it, why not go ahead and give him your vote now?
Then be sure to head down to the Bull and Barrel and see him play with special guest Ian Foster tonight!
