I entered NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest so I had to perform a song near a desk! I chose “Who Died?” one of my favorites from my latest album A/B, because it has fun dialogue breaks. I was also able to incorporate props! My cell phone seems to ring at just the right time, how did we do it? (Movie magic)
I don’t think I have a realistic shot of winning the whole thing as I feel NPR is probably looking for something a little more cultured and I am neither hoity nor toity. But it was fun to do and performing the song live with an actual ringing phone is the perfect way to convey the dread of receiving voice calls.
