Shure has announced that UK-based band Fingertrap is the winner of the ‘Shure Call for Legends’ unsigned band competition. A total of 240 entries were received from 31 countries.
Chris Kimsey, who has produced and engineered for the likes of the Rolling Stones, was on the panel of judges that selected the band. “There were some excellent entries within the top 20, and Fingertrap were most definitely in my top 3. Really looking forward to meeting the band and getting to work on the EP congratulations to all the bands who made the top 20,” says Kinsey.
The band will spend three days in the studio with Chris Kimsey at Kore in London. Fingertrap will also perform a set at the Montreux Jazz Festival as well as receiving Shure gear of their choice worth €3,000.
Nick Savage, bassist with the band, comments: “I can’t believe we have been chosen as the winners of Shure Call for Legends. I am so overwhelmed I am shaking! When we entered the competition, we didn’t think we stood a chance.
“It’s just unbelievable. Thanks to everyone who listened to our track Return If Found and shared it. We can’t wait to get in the studio with a man with as much experience as Chris Kimsey.”
