Acoustic Test Drive 2010

Here at Taylor Guitars, we’ve joined forces with Elixir® Strings, Elixir® Cables and to find some very talented emerging artists. Selected by popular vote and a panel of judges, five finalists have been chosen,  including soulful singer-songwriter Anamieke Quinn, contemporary folk-rocker Andy Brown, energetic songwriter-guitarist Jerry Stamp, plus a pair of bands: polished pop-rockers Goodnight Sunrise, along with Senator and the New Republic, whose melodic sound blends mellow moods and haunting vocals. Strumming their 300 or 400 Series Taylors equipped with Elixir Strings and Cables, the artists are vying for the Grand Prize: a selection of free gear from Taylor and Elixir, as well as session time at New York City’s Tainted Blue Studios to record with their world-class guitars, strings and cables. You can check out the videos below, and be sure to vote for your favorite before September 15 by visiting the Test Drive page at
