The deadline for submissions has come and gone and judges are currently deciding who will be the winner of NPR Music’s 2019 Tiny Desk Contest.
Drawn from a pool of videos from unsigned acts playing an original song in a desk-y/desk-friendly/desk-adjacent setting, the winner is set to be announced next month. The victors receive their very own Tiny Desk Concert and all the perks that come from winning the esteemed contest (previous winners have scored Grammys, record deals and high-profile touring and concert opportunities).
Several Greater Cincinnati musicians are once again in the TDC running. Check out a few of the submissions below and click on their names to wish them luck on Facebook.
