About Allison Merten

I have always loved performing music for others! I love a wide variety of genres. On my YouTube Page, I have posted covers of songs as well as songs that I have written. http://www.youtube.com/user/AllysMusicRoom. I made my lifelong dream come true and released my first album, TEMPTATION. :-) https://allisonmerten.com/debut-album-temptation/

Are You Ready for the 2019 Tiny Desk Contest?

Although I didn’t have my new song finished in time for last year’s contest, I hope to participate in this year’s! 🙂

Here are the songs I submitted to the contest in past years:




The deadline for this year’s contest is 11:59 p.m. ET on April 14, 2019. Here is how to participate:

  • Record a new video in which you are playing one of your original songs.
  • Perform the song at a desk.

I’ve had a lot of fun participating in this contest in the past, and I hope I can have the song that I’d like to submit ready by April 14! 😉
