I’m a big fan of NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series. I’ve found it a great (and FREE) way to be introduced to wonderful new music.
SO… In honor of International Women’s Day, which was earlier this week, I count down my ten favorite Tiny Desk Concerts featuring women musicians!
#9 – Girl in A Coma
For the three songs Girl In A Coma performed during a recent stop in the NPR Music offices on a short East Coast tour, the San Antonio trio deftly gets back to basics to explore not just the form of its songs, but also the soul of its lyrics. You don’t easily forget Nina Diaz’s voice after you hear it for the first time, and as her songwriting skills grow, so do her vocal performances — it feels as if there’s less effort and more emoting.
