Olivia Rodrigo: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

  • Am Vor 8 Monate

    NPR MusicNPR Music

    The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.

    Sofie Hernandez-Simeonidis | December 7, 2021
    Stepping into a DMV when you're about to take your first driver's test, while nerve wracking, is something of a milestone. And Olivia Rodrigo has been hitting milestones with frequency this year: her first album SOUR debuted at the top of the charts in May after the success of three previously released singles, most notably the viral "drivers license" (hence the DMV locale and its "interesting vibes.") Her pop stardom may seem sudden, but Rodrigo has been entranced by music and songwriting for the majority of her 18 years, as if she's been observing the right moves from the backseat of the car until it was time for her to get behind the wheel.

    Rodrigo and her band take on the Tiny Desk mentality as they experiment with arrangements throughout this performance, embracing new sounds for her songs. The set begins with an acoustic version of the pop-punk-ish single "good 4 u," and a similar setup continues with the addition of an echoey, electric guitar in "traitor." "drivers license" features only Rodrigo and her keyboard, a shift from the recorded version well-known for Dan Nigro's production and the ever-present beeping of a car door sensor. "deja vu" starts softly with just an acoustic guitar until the chorus ramps up to a full band after she exclaims, "Do you get deja vu, huh?"

    SOUR tells the story of a first heartbreak, one that inspires an intense anguish most accessible when you're a teenager. That open wound, empty-chest feeling of a breakup, especially when you're as young as Rodrigo, is difficult to shake. The album allowed listeners to bask in Rodrigo's heartache as if it were their own, but as she dances around an empty DMV and laughs along to a song about betrayal, she proves that time heals all wounds.

    "traitor"

    "deja vu"

The production of tiny desk concert always amazes me as someone who dabbled in audio engineering in school, it is HARD to make recording this clean while maintaining a good balance between every inputs in a non-treated environment from mic choice, placement to mixing and mastering. everything needs to be calculated and executed really well to produce live recording of this caliber huge props to the production team, thank you for putting this much efforts into creating these sessions and bringing us the best listening experience, y'all are AMAZING

I agree, the mix was great… the kit was really well mic’d… but all the guitars (and of course the keys) were DI, so bleed really isn’t an issue, and the vocals were all single source. The “non-treated environment” isn’t much more than a background. Tiny desk has done some really impressive (technically complicated) sessions, this one really wasn’t one of them. That doesn’t mean that they didn’t hit it out of the park, though.

I don't use Spotify, I don't listen to the radio, I don't have a clue who this girl is....and I'm just sitting here in awe. Legit greatness. The songs just kept getting better and better....no clue which one of these is or isn't a hit, but the world needs more of this.

She is so talented, shame on Paramore for making her feel bad about making music. As artists they should feel humbled that they have influenced a young artist within her life, so much so, that they can hear themselves in HER OWN voice, that is her voice, not Haley Williams, shame on them. I sing and I’d be proud to know that I’d influenced younger singers to become who they are. She is amazing, well done Olivia 👏🏼

I’m not into the type of music that Olivia makes, but even I can acknowledge that she only gets hate because of her immense impact onto the music scene. She is far and away, one of the most talented singers of her generation and her music will certainly inspire generations to come just as she was once inspired by those before her. I make my own rap music and I’m proud of what I’ve made but at the same time I’m conscious of the fact that I am less talented than most other rappers. Fame is a really scary thing, especially for some one as young as Olivia. Luckily she didn’t just get famous and had experience acting beforehand. But nonetheless, she is traversing the treacherous path of fame flawlessly. I admire her a lot.

I really don't think she's "one of the most talented singers". She's flippin' great, don't get me wrong. But I really do agree with what you say about the hate she receives. People just like to hate all things popular. Also, she was definitely overplayed because of tiktok and kind of exhausted listeners(me amongst them) which really added fuel to the fire. However, when you come back and WILLINGLY listen to her, she's got great songs!

@who asked no i just use that term because i think female is an outdated term that doesn’t include everyone, because it’s anatomical and doesn’t consider women that don’t have female anatomy. Basically it’s just a more politically correct term in my eyes than just saying female. If you identify as a women, you’re female presenting. So Billie Eilish is still female presenting even tho she dresses more masculine:) hope that made sense

I feel like it’s also because she is young and female presenting, so people don’t respect her as much, which sucks, but that’s how internalised misogyni works ig. At least that’s a trend i see in the music industry.

There’s live auto tune on this and the studio version is very much melodyne as well, I know this to be true cus I know who does all her vocal editing. She’s EXTREMELY talented but this imaginary bar you all set where you thing vocal tuning isn’t happening when in reality it’s being done on everyone in all genres, y’all gotta chill. Just enjoy the music stop speaking on something you don’t know cus you’re actually incorrect.

@Bell Dall Make no mistake, I think Adele had a great voice. But there is room there, and in that room we find separation. Her voice isn't Whitney level. And with that much separation I just can't call her voice a 10. But all this just goes back to my point: the best voices often aren't the most popular, it takes more than that. And most important is good material. Having good control and really conveying emotion is really important. Having style and a unique sound is important. Making savvy musical choices is important. A great voice is no more important than any of these, it takes a mix of these to be successful, to be an artist.

Vor 7 Monate

@Gary CO I think everyone has their own idea of what separates a good voice from a powerhouse. Personally I love how soft and whimsical yet strong and powerful Adele's voice can be. She does not have to do a lot with her voice like adding whistle tones and what not for it to sound amazing. But I 1000% agree that Jessie J is underrated but style wise I do prefer Adele and would not say her voice is "better" as you can't really compare the two. Not to mention Adele is probably what most of these "better" singers you speak of look up to and try and take after.

Vor 7 Monate
Gary CO
Gary CO

@Bell Dall No, I'm saying it's below a ten ;) Many singers have better range, tone, more tools at their disposal. For instance, go listen to Morissette Amon, who has everything: good soft tones (doesn't sound like talking), good low notes, amazing belting, huge range, growls, cries, whistle notes, whisper tone, unbelievable breath control, and amazing tone. Jessie J is actually criminally under-rated as well. There are many amazing voices, many better than Adele. But Adele has a voice that's a solid 9, and when you combine that with good, well written songs specifically written for her style and strengths she sounds even better.

Creo que algo muy importante que al crecer olvidamos es la forma en como nos afecta todo estando más jóvenes, venimos de una infancia de años de mucha "tranquilidad" a lidiar finalmente con el amor (verdaderos sentimientos de amor romantico) y estamos todos muy ocupados cantando de cosas mucho más intensas, una persona de 16 años no tiene como relacionarse con una canción que habla de tú primer divorcio ¿sabes? Olivia llegó en el momento indicado para una generación que no tiene muchos referentes a veces (salvó Lorde) de músicos que pasen por lo mismo

This new generation of SUPERSONGSTRESSES (Rodrigo and Eilish namely) is so exciting! I can’t wait to hear what she does next!

I agree. I wish there wasn't so much concentration on huge stadium tours, but I understand that is where the money is being made, not so much on record sales.

These concerts truly show which artists can hold their own, they show true talent and passion and this is a prime example of that. Someone like Olivia deserves this kind of spotlight on her talent so people can see past her being “just another pop artist” and into the talent that’s there!!!

I cannot get over how beautiful her voice is and how well written and relatable her songs are. I love “Good for you,” and that’s the song that lead me to this tiny desk video but OMG I’ve been missing out on 1- how AMAZING her voice is unedited and 2- SO MANY MORE AMAZING SONGS?! Just wow ! 💕

@Francisco Juárez I’d say her chances in Best New Artist are very high considering her impact and how big she’s gotten in only a year, but so many great deserving artists are up for the Grammys (which I have to say were messed up before her), so we’ll have to see!

Deja Vu has always been so underrated. It honestly has an incredibly sneaky grown up vibe, it’s probably the most singer-songwriter thing on Sour, just dressed up in straightforward pop. The acoustic version really brings it out

I understimated her a lot. To me, this NPR session is the most savage way this girl could find to prove us wrong! Raw talent. Vocals seem easy for her to handle, guitar, piano and I read she writes her own stuff. Ive been listening this songs nonstop on the radio one after another and I didnt know they were from the same artist. So amazing. Now I want a Chloe x Halle x Olivia collab!

Love how the opening set showcases the trifecta of American acoustic guitar makers - Martin, Gibson, Taylor and each one is playing a different voicing (capo 1, capo 6, open). 5 acoustics seemed a bit much at first, but the different voicing play well with each other, with that 12-string dreadnought leading at 2:42
