2018 Tiny Desk Live @ NPR Illinois

All musicians considered. No matter what genre you play or how long you’ve been making music, NPR Illinois and Bedrock 66 invite all unsigned local artists to a special recording to enter into NPR’s 2018 Tiny Desk Contest.

We'll record your original song (performed behind a desk of course) for you to submit to NPR for a chance to perform behind NPR's tiny desk in Washington D.C. and go on a fully-funded U.S. tour with NPR music and Lagunitas Brewing Company.

If you're a musician or band interested in recording a song at the NPR Illinois Tiny Desk Party, contact Nice Bogdanovich at nbogd2@uis.edu or 217-206-6643 are Carter Staley at cstal2@uis.edu or 217-206-6502.
