Ernie Ball Endorses The Jellybricks

BlogEB_IndieP_120x120_WinnerAfter one year, thousands of artists, and three genre winners, Ernie Ball has selected a Grand Prize winner in the “Save Your Strings” competition. The winner will receive, in addition to their year’s supply of strings and accessories, Music Man guitars for each guitarist in the band and an official endorsement from Ernie Ball. In the running for the top prize were Pop winners Biscuits & Gravy, Rock winners The Jellybricks, and Country winners Gin House. Ultimately, Ernie Ball selected pop rockers The Jellybricks to receive the big prize.

OurStage is proud to host the music of such incredibly talented acts, and especially pleased to have helped not only expose them to new fans, but also to empower them with the tools they need to keep creating great music.

The Jellybricks will no doubt find use for their prizes as they begin to support their forthcoming record, Youngstown Tune-Up. The album’s first single, “About The Weekend,” was just featured by Little Steven Van Zandt as his “Coolest Song in the World” as well as video of the day on his hugely popular radio show The Underground Garage. Watch it below.

Congratulations to The Jellybricks, as well as Gin House and Biscuits & Gravy.

Gin House: Ernie Ball “Save Your Strings” Country Winner

IJUHDXCIDOVG-520x520The third and final installment of our 2013 Ernie Ball “Save Your Strings” Competition was the search for one great artist in our country category to win a year’s supply of strings and accessories. We’ve previously introduced you to our pop winner, Biscuits & Gravy, and our rock winner, The Jellybricks. They will now be joined in consideration for the grand prize – an endorsement deal with Ernie Ball and a Music Man guitar for each player in the band – by our country winner, Gin House.

Gin House has a winner with their great country porch stomper “Roots,” a perfect title for this band, whose other songs reveal a passion for all kinds of Americana beyond country – blues, folk, and even classic pop. The main driver behind Gin House is Brandon Clark, who sings with a voice like tarnished gold – built for radio, but with a deep character, and sounded with conviction. Check out the appropriately slow-burning stunner “The Fire Is Alive” for evidence. Clark founded the band in 2011 with Paul Lynch, and the following year released their self-titled 5-song EP, which features “Roots.” In support of the release, Clark hit the road with Austin Renfroe, hitting colleges from the Northeast to the upper Midwest. Sad to say we missed them last time around, but we won’t that mistake again.

All of the songs from the EP are currently posted on their OurStage page – highly recommended listening. Stay tuned for the selection of the Ernie Ball “Save Your Strings” Grand Prize winner.

The Jellybricks Win A Year Of Free Strings From Ernie Ball

The 2nd winner in our yearlong Ernie Ball “Save Your Strings” Competition has been selected. For phase one, with your help, we found a great, undiscovered pop act, Biscuits & Gravy. This installment of the competition was a hunt for the top rock band, and the winner is… Pennsylvania’s The Jellybricks.

The Jellybricks aren’t exactly an out of nowhere band of newcomers. In 2012, they released their fifth album, Suckers. They’re a road-tested working band who have been lauded by Rolling Stone and SiriusXM’s Steven Van Zandt. The last few years have found the band honing their sound, and evolving away from pure power-pop and toward something new, with elements of ‘70s glam and vintage garage (no wonder Little Steven was hooked). But it still circles back to the basics – undeniable melodies, crunchy guitars, and killer harmonies.

Check out the winning track, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide,” to hear what convinced the Ernie Ball judges to award The Jellybricks with a year’s supply of strings and accessories, plus a chance at the Grand Prize – an Ernie Ball endorsement and a Music Man guitar for each player in the band.

Next up is our Save Your Strings Country edition, and then Ernie Ball will select the big winner from among the three genre winners.
