Watch Noname's Touching 'Tiny Desk Concert' Performance
Noname‘s Tiny Desk Concert performance will make your heart smile. During a pitstop in the nation’s capital, the Chicago emcee treated the good folks at NPR to stripped-down, three-song set of selections from her debut album, Telefone.
With band in tow, Noname lolled through album standouts, “Diddy Bop and “Yesterday,” as well as a medley comprised “Reality Check,” “Bye Bye Baby” and “Casket Pretty” (though, this writer would have loved to see “Shadow Man” performed,) cool and clean in her delivery, making sure to give the band some during their Tiny Desk debut. See if you can escape the charm of this touching 15-minute set.
