It was such a treat to talk with Alisa Amador. I love the way that she talks about life and connecting with people. One thing about Alisa that stood out to me right away was that she has been doing the work of performing since long before she thought of herself as a musician. She got her start as a backup singer for her parents’ band when she was four years old. Her own artistry has developed as she has discovered her own taste, her love for the guitar, and her voice as a songwriter.
Alisa has also developed a unique point of view as a bilingual songwriter, which goes way beyond simply singing in two languages. Alisa draws on a variety of Latin-American cultures in her music which makes for a huge imaginative universe. Not only is she using the vocabulary of English and Spanish, but she incorporates a variety of ways of looking at the world.
I talked with Alisa about performing, connecting with people, and about her new EP ‘Narratives,’ which I think our listeners will love. It’s folksy, jazzy, intimate, personal, and timeless. Everyone should look out for Alisa as a star on the rise because she has one of the coolest voices I’ve ever heard. Like a magical elf calling out beyond the scope of time.
