NPR Music is throwing a Tiny Desk contest to help fans discover unknown artists. The Tiny Desk Concerts series at NPR has long been a place to see well-known musicians, as well as a launching pad for many others. Now, we're looking for true unknowns. We're asking bands and musicians all over the country to film themselves performing one song behind a desk of their choice.
The winner will play NPR's famous Tiny Desk in Washington, D.C., and travel to Austin, Texas, in March 2015 to appear in Lagunitas' CouchTrippin' showcase. If the winning artist has a connection to a Member Station, NPR Music will give that station a shout-out, add the station logo in the winner's Tiny Desk Concert video, and explore other engagement opportunities.
The contest is open December 2, 2014 through January 19, 2015. More details on the contest will be available here: www.npr.org/tinydeskcontest.
