April is Public Radio Music Month, and what is more "public radio music" than the in-studio session? Stations across the nation put hours and hours of work into bringing up-and-coming artists and high-profile bands into their studios, often capturing some of the most poignant... or raucous performances out there.

So to celebrate Public Radio Music Month, we're having a daily vote for the best in-studio tracks from The Current's performance archive. We've gone through and picked some of the most beloved performances by the staff and by our audience. We'll play the winner during the Live Current track of the day the following day.

Now, let the games begin! Today's vote: Sia, Iron & Wine and Brandi Carlile

Brandi Carlile "Hallelujah" wins the vote!
