Stephen Jerzak and I Wish I Could Stay Here
STEPHEN JERZAK TO RELEASE ‘MILES AND MILES’ TOMORROW ON UNIVERSAL/REPUBLIC RECORDS CATCH HIM ON THE VANS WARPED TOUR ALL SUMMER
19-year-old singer/songwriter Stephen Jerzak is focused on spreading a positive message of peace, love and all around good times to his listeners and it seems his musical philosophy is catching on! With over 18 million plays and counting on MySpace, over 100,000 fans on Facebook, over 3.5 million views on YouTube and 230,000 singles sold on iTunes and a rapidly growing fan base, the young Wisconsin native is ready to put a smile on faces worldwide with the release of his debut album on Universal/Republic Records on June 14, 2011. Stephen picked up a guitar at the age of 11, sang lead vocals for his first band at 12 and put out his first solo project at 14. Over the last few years he has immersed himself in music, mastering his craft and in the process learned to play acoustic and electric guitar, bass, piano, drums and even trombone. Stephen’s lyrical content focuses on love and relationships, but with a playful edge only a High School student could harness. Jerzak has already headlined three tours, supported Mike Posner and Far East Movement on a nationwide tour, played at both SXSW and Bamboozle, and was direct support on the All Star Weekend tour in November/December 2010 supporting the release of his full length ‘My Uke Has a Crush On You’ album. Stephen’s major label debut ‘Miles and Miles’ will be released on Universal/Republic on June 14th, 2011. The album features a special appearance from Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, who provides guest vocals on ‘She Said’. The current single is ‘Party Like You’re Single’.
Stephen Jerzak is currently profiled in the current Warped Tour issue of Ragged Magazine which can be downloaded at: www.raggedmag.com. The issue will also be available at the American Rag booth on all Warped Tour dates this summer.
