Here are just some of the eclectic offerings of a handful of SA's talented musicians submitted to NPR in their, now annual, contest to find the next "unknown" performer. The winner wins the coveted opportunity to appear on their much-loved Tiny Desk Concert series. Tight competition here.

"Plate Tectonic"

There has been a noticeable void in the San Antonio music scene lately. Saakred, the visual, aural, sexual artist that in the two year's on the scene has raced to the top of the music community's favorites list, has been away in Ireland working on over 30 new songs. In a press release last week, Saakred speaks to the themes of "Plate Tectonic." "Influenced by the surge of the Atlantic, 'Plate Tectonic' tells the story of a long lost love taken by the Sea."
