Last week, Carlos Arzate & The Kind Souls came out with a new video filmed in the Bowen Stone House for the song "No More" for consideration in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, in which bands and performers independently produce and submit live performances with the hope of being included in the popular online video series. This week, Jillian and the Giants and Katie Haverly are submitting works to the contest, as well.
Jillian and the Giants entered the contest with their song "My Baby," which will be released in a few months on the band's upcoming album, Mr. Airplane. Featuring a very, very tiny toy desk, the video was shot by Mark Bloom and Maggie Rickard and produced by frontwoman Jillian Bessett.
Bessett also makes an appearance harmonizing her backup vocals in Haverly's submission. The song "100 Waters" was filmed in Peppersauce Cave in the Catalina Mountains, which, like Arzate's video, shows off the beauty and diversity of Tucson and its surrounding areas. The song comes from Haverly's 2015 release, The Aviary.
