NPR Tiny Desk: Noname

Vulnerability is one of the most important things in art. The ability to convey complex emotions and ideas in form is almost alchemy. Turning nothing into something and attracting the world to it. One of my favorite artists of 2016 came and performed at the NPR:Tiny Desk – Noname.
