Local musician Michelle Amador to take the stage at The Center for the Arts

The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley is proud to welcome local songstress Michelle Amador to its main stage on Aug. 27.

Amador is from a family of musicians and has been classically trained. She studied choral voice at Menlo School and ultimately went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Southern California. She continued to pursue music, studying jazz solo voice as well as composition.

In 2020 Amador released two new singles, “Glimmer” and “We Can Work It Out” which accompanied videos to visually represent what the artist was expressing through her music. Just this year she released “These Are The His And Los,” an album featuring a video by SNEAL.

“I’m intrigued by visual imagery set to music,” said Amador. “My music has always evoked imagery for me personally as I write it and it is a joy to discover what it evokes for other people.”

Throughout her career Amador has been the subject of much praise. The San Francisco Chronicle described her as “silken-voiced” while the San Jose Mercury News wrote that she is “a new breed of musician.”
