The first Tiny Desk Concert was in 2008. after NPR Music’s editor Stephen Thomson left a bar frustrated that he couldn’t hear the music over the noise of the crowd. He joked that folk singer Laura Gibson should perform at his desk in their office, and one month later, organized to do just that.
Since then, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts have grown to be one of the most important music institutions today. During the pandemic, NPR Music has been hosting Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts, where artists like Justin Bieber perform at home to abide by the rules of lockdown/quarantine.
