Ryan Amador is a progressive pop artist/songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY.
Ryan grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles called "Palos Verdes," writing original songs on the piano at only 9 years old. In 2011, after 12 years of songwriting, he collaborated with music producer Justin Goldner and singer/songwriter Shaina Taub to release his first EP, “Symptoms of a Wide Eyed Being." The album was re-released in 2012 alongside a short collection of older songs, "Palos Verdes: A Teenage Retrospective," produced by David Baloche.
His interest in human rights led to the release of his most recent single, "Define Me," a duet with accomplished singer Jo Lampert of AVAN LAVA. The song is an LGBT anthem proposing a removal of labels that divide us. Jo and Ryan have performed the song at the True Colors LGBT Youth Conference on March 22 and at St. John The Divine for the first ever Spirit of Pride: Queer First Celebration curated by The Trevor Project. The video for the "Define Me" has reached over 133,000 views in its five months on youtube and was featured in the Huffington Post.
On June 28th, 2013, Ryan released his first full length album, "Ryan Amador" with an album release concert at Joe's Pub in New York.. The album features eleven new songs, including "Define Me" and live hits, "Instead" & "Skylark". Ryan was recently featured in the ASCAP EXPO's Singer/Songwriter Showcase and as an opening act for Adam Lambert at Pittsburgh Pride last June. He is currently working on new material.
