Meet the winner

Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Quinn Christopherson is an Athabaskan and Inupiaq songwriter who combines thoughtful songwriting with a powerful sense of perspective. His music is warm and vulnerable; in it, he reflects on his childhood, honors the relationships in his life and addresses his role as a transgender individual navigating Alaska's social landscape.

We're excited to welcome Quinn Christopherson to the Tiny Desk at NPR in Washington, D.C., where he will play his own Tiny Desk concert. He also wins the opportunity to tour the United States with NPR and Blue Microphones.
