At the 2024 Grammys, Tiny Desk alumnae boygenius took home best rock performance, best rock song and an best alternative music album.

There are many steps along the way to a Grammy: inspiration, creation, hard work ... and a Tiny Desk? As we watched the 2024 telecast, we couldn't help but notice — as in years previous — that many of the nominated and winning artists had performed behind the Tiny Desk in our Washington, D.C., office or in remote locations as part of our COVID-era Tiny Desk (home) concert series.
