I’m a big fan of the Tiny Desk series of concerts over at NPR, and each year they take submissions for a chance to perform in the NPR studio.  Esme Patterson of Paper Bird is the most recent Colorado-based artist to appear on the show, but there are plenty of submissions from the state for 2017 – Daniel and Jessi from Colorado Open Air (102.3FM in Denver) run them down over here.

My personal favorites from the list were Tyler Van Kirk Orchestra, a one man band of sorts:

Lauren Liberty Ives, who has learned the hard way to follow her brain over her heart:

And last but not least, “Killer Robot” from brass and drums marching band Gora Gora Orkestar:

Good luck to all the entrants!
