Map Of 2017 Tiny Desk Contest Entries From The Northwest


2017 Tiny Desk Contest Northwest Map

In January, NPR Music began accepting entries for their 3rd annual Tiny Desk Contest. Unsigned musicians from around the country were instructed to use/find/borrow or improvise a desk of some kind, roll video, and play their most compelling (original) song. There were over 400 submissions from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho alone, and they covered a lot of ground, from bizarre chicken beat boxing to beautifully understated folk songs. opbmusic compiled a list of just some of our favorites from the Pacific Northwest, but if you want to view them all start exploring our interactive map below.
