Tiny Desk Concert

It's time to crank up the amps, warm up the drum machines, dust off the sax (or whatever your instrument of choice is) and enter the Tiny Desk Contest.

We watched more than 6,000 videos. Ten judges weighed in. Now, the 2017 Tiny Desk Contest has a winner.

NPR Music's strangely, spectacularly intimate concert series gets a visit from the Texas troubadour. Where else are you going to see Lyle Lovett pick up a cup of coffee midset and launch into a monologue about Iris Dement? And then deliver a haunting guitar-and-fiddle version of "If You Were To Wake Up?"
