Thursday, February 15, 2018

Attention Tennessee Valley musicians! It is time again for the Tiny Desk Contest!

Are you ready for your big break? NPR Music is once again asking unknown bands and musicians across the country to film themselves performing one original song at a desk of their choice to submit to the Tiny Desk Contest. The winner of the Contest will play NPR's famous Tiny Desk in Washington, D.C., before embarking on a U.S. tour that includes appearances at a taping of NPR's Ask Me Another and at events hosted by NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company, in partnership with Member stations, throughout the country.

Ths year's judging panel this year will include tastemakers from Member stations -- Talia Schlanger from WXPN and The World Cafe, Russ Borris from WFUV and Toki Wright from The Current -- alongside NPR Music's Bob Boilen, plus favorite Tiny Desk alumni: Sylvan Esso, Gaby Moreno and Tarriona "Tank" Ball of Tank and the Bangas.

We at WLRH know that Huntsville has a wealth of local musical talent. This could be YOUR chance to share that talent with the world. The 2018 NPR Music Tiny Desk Contest will be accepting entries Tuesday, February 20, 2018 through Sunday, March 25, 2018.
