Snagajob’s 3rd annual The Hourly Gig contest is in full swing, and five finalists have been selected.

The Hourly Gig contest is for up and coming singers/bands who still work a day job and are trying to make the leap into the music industry full time. Artists submitted videos of them singing original songs, all vying for an all-expenses paid trip to Denver to open for country artist Chase Rice on Sep. 5.

Five finalists have been selected, and voting is open until Aug. 29. The 2014 finalists are:
