We’ll be playing everything from U2 to Alessia Cara; from Chris Issack to Kendrick Lamar. Come early for dinner and stay for the music!

Tiny Desk Contest Entry 2018

I love watching NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. They are an awesome way to watch bands you love perform stripped down versions of their songs. They are also awesome for discovering new music!

A few years ago, NPR decided to launch a yearly Tiny Desk Contest, where emerging artists could record their own music in front of a desk. Last year, I recorded a stripped down version of my song, “Howlin.” This year, it’s a stripped down version of “A New Start,” complete with a live vocal loop during the bridge. Hope you enjoy it!

Here was the setlist.
