There was so much talent among the over 150 Tiny Desk Contest entries from Massachusetts that it was tough to choose our favorites. But after a lot of listening and much consideration, our panelists cast their votes, and produced this incredible crop of finalists: 16 of the finest unsigned musicians and songwriters our state has to offer.
In the coming weeks, our panel will select a Grand Prize winner from among the finalists, earning them a coveted slot at the WERS Wicked Good Festival on Aug. 18, alongside headliners like Bleachers and Buffalo Tom.
While our judges deliberate, we wanted to give you a chance to weigh in, too. Watch the entries below, and vote for your favorite from among the 16 finalists. (Skip down to vote.) The Fan Favorite wins a gig at WBUR’s new performance space, CitySpace, which is scheduled to debut in 2019.
We're only counting on vote per person. Voting closes at midnight on Sunday, July 8.
