From Billie To Lizzo To Yola, Get To Know 2020’s Best New Artist Grammy Nominees
This nine-piece, multi-artform collective, led by Tarriona “Tank” Ball, formed in 2011 after meeting at an open-mic show in New Orleans. Ball, known for her slam poetry, is one piece of the puzzle, with synth players, background vocalists, saxophonists, and others coming together for four-dimensional representations of soul, rap, and funk music. In 2017, they won NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest for their submission of a performance of “Quick” and released their sophomore studio album, Green Balloon, last year, along with a live album, Live Vibes 2. Now, they’re primed to do just about anything. Everyone’s listening.
