Andra Day Proves There Are No Bounds To Her Talent
It may be one of the world's smallest stages, but it is also one of the most prestigious. Being asked to perform a Tiny Desk Concert session for NPR is an offer that signifies a serious musical tick of approval for the artist involved, and is something that only comes after much scrutiny. That Warner Bros. Records' Andra Day in fact prompted Tiny Desk producer Bob Boilen to break his own booking rule - to see artists live before they come to the office...when I heard Andra Day sing "Forever Mine" from her album Cheers To The Fall, I decided to break my rule, sight unseen - really does tell you all you need to know about the authenticity and potency of her rising star. Showcasing the effortlessly instinctive talent that saw her retro-soul inspired 'Cheers To The Fall' album be met with wide-spread acclaim, here Day takes to the Tiny Desk stage with the jazzy, raspy vocal electricity that so compellingly powers her seductive delivery as she performs a selection of songs from the album.
