The winner of the 2022 NPR Tiny Desk Contest, Alisa Amador’s music is a synthesis of the many styles she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz, funk and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin music she grew up with. NPR’s Cyrena Touros calls her “a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams,” and NPR’s Bob Boilen calls Alisa “a powerful voice whose tender performance commands attention and fosters connection.” Alisa has opened for such artists as Lake Street Dive, Madison Cunningham, Watchhouse, and countless others. Alisa’s soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics, and syncopated rhythms are likely to make you cry, laugh, and dance all within one set. Alisa released her debut EP, Narratives, in 2021.

Haley Sabella“Nothing’s wrong, I just feel the whole wide world,” award-winning songwriter Hayley Sabella sings on Sorrow:Joy, a track from her new album Flew The Nest. Hayley has become known for this kind of simplicity in truth-telling, combining poetic lyrics with gripping melodies that are “sometimes cold and deadly, other times refreshing and full of life.” (Rolling Stone Country)

Born in coastal Massachusetts but raised in Nicaragua, Hayley has always been inspired by the dramatic landscapes and vast seasonal changes that surrounded her growing up. She has grown into one of New England’s best songwriters and winner of the 2019 New England Songwriting Competition.
