The winner of NPR’s 2021 Tiny Desk Contest is Mecca Russell, a singer-songwriter from Arlington, Virginia. Russell, who goes by Neffy, rose to the top of thousands of contestants — and beat out some neighbors — for her entry “Wait Up,” a song inspired by moving back home during the pandemic, she told NPR. This year’s panel of judges included Tiny Desk creator Bob Boilen, Tiny Desk alum Phoebe Bridgers, and last year’s winner Linda Diaz, among other critics and musicians.
