Deqn Sue
October 5, 2015  by BOB BOILEN •
Deqn Sue rose above a crowd of close to 7,000 entries and almost won our Tiny Desk Concert Contest earlier this year. I so loved her song and her performance of “Magenta” that I invited Deqn Sue — along with her producer, Kelvin Wooten — to my desk to perform that song and more.What you’ll hear is a witty soul and a powerful singer backed by precise beats, melodic bass and electronics, all wrapped in humor and heart. You can find the first song she performs here — “Bloody Monster,” which she wrote after being on the receiving end of a racist comment from her roommate — on a new EP called Snack. And you can watch her Tiny Desk Concert Contest video entry here.Zeitgeist is available now.
