I find this hard to watch in 2022, gotta admit. I don’t know if it’s just remembering so clearly the state I was in at that point or what, but I’m half tempted to rip this thing down.
I entered the tiny desk contest in 2017. I didn’t think I’d win, place, or get tons of attention. I just wanted to enter, and seemed like a fun thing to do.
Before Strange Brew shut down, I played this song at an open mic and got some really great feedback on it which is why I selected it for my entry. My friend Andy had a great desk that I used, and setting up a little performance space and recording some songs was a nice distraction from reality.
