The day Alisa Amador decided to walk away from her career in music was, ironically enough, the day her career truly began.

“I was burned out and dealing with all this personal grief and trauma, and I finally just came to the conclusion that I couldn’t go on the way I was anymore,” she reflects. “And then as I was walking through the logistics of how I would break the news to everyone in my life, I got a phone call telling me that I’d won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest.”

Now, two years later Amador is an artist reborn, both spiritually and sonically, with a stunning full-length debut to show for it. Recorded with co-producers Tyler Chester and Daniel Radin, her album ‘Multitudes’ finds the bilingual songwriter formally introducing herself with a bold, captivating self-portrait, one that serves not only as a testament to how far she’s come (sharing dates with everyone from Hozier and Brandi Carlisle to Maggie Rogers and Lake Street Dive), but also as a celebration of where she comes from (her roots spanning Puerto Rico, New Mexico, Argentina, and New England).

Slipping effortlessly between Spanish and English and featuring guest appearances from Gaby Moreno, Madison Cunningham, and Quinn Christopherson, the collection of songs here are raw and vulnerable, at once steeped in devastating loss and uncertainty, but also laced with the hope and resilience of young woman learning to find her voice and stand her ground.

Alisa Amador is praised by NPR’s Bob Boilen as a “powerful voice whose tender performance commands attention and fosters connection”.
