ON DIGITAL PLATFORMS WORLDWIDE
New York, NY (September 15, 2023) – Today Concord Theatricals Recordings released Songs By An Immigrant Vol. 2, the highly anticipated sophomore album by Jaime Lozano & The Familia, on streaming and digital platforms worldwide. The entire album is available to stream or download HERE.
With music by acclaimed musical theatre composer and 2022 Jonathan Larson Grant recipient Jaime Lozano, and lyrics by Lozano, Georgie Castilla, Marina Pires, Neena Beber, Michael Cooper, Ella Bric & Fran Tapia, Nancy Nachama Cheser, and Tommy Newman, the new album features award-winning Latin artists and Broadway stars, including Melissa Barrera, Latin GRAMMY® winner Ella Bric, Florencia Cuenca, Eden Espinosa, Mandy Gonzalez, Robin de Jesús, Mauricio Martínez, and Ana Villafañe, among others.
In honor of the release, a new music video for “The Stories We Sing Of,” performed by Lozano, can be viewed HERE. Additionally, the previously released video featuring Florencia Cuenca’s stirring performance of “No Podemos Regresar” can be watched HERE.
Album cover artwork can be downloaded HERE.
“Jaime is a force of nature, a whirlwind of creativity and positivity,” said Sean Patrick Flahaven, Chief Theatricals Executive for Concord. “This album is another example of his range of styles, subjects, and above all, collaboration with terrific songwriters, artists, arrangers, and producers. ‘No Podemos Regresar’ is one of the most moving tracks I’ve ever heard.”
“I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by amazing artists: singers, performers, musicians, designers, arrangers, that I called my Familia,” said Lozano. “Being an immigrant artist in this country is full of challenges, but when you find your home far from home, your community, your family, everything is worth it. Everything is about the people, our people, and that is why I tell stories. So we can find each other.”
In Songs By An Immigrant Vol. 2, as well as his other works, Lozano honestly portrays the first- and second-generation middle class U.S. experience and details the challenges of being an immigrant: finding a new home, learning a new language, dealing with discrimination, pursuing the American Dream and searching for ways to build bridges instead of walls.
As part of Lozano’s 2023 Lincoln Center residency – and to celebrate the album and the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month – Lozano’s signature project Jaime Lozano & The Familia will return to the David Rubenstein Atrium tonight at 7:30pm ET. Joining Lozano will be an all-star Latine lineup of Broadway and Off-Broadway performers, including Mayelah Barrera, Melissa Barrera, Florencia Cuenca, Linedy Genao, Javier Ignacio, Mauricio Martínez, Joel Perez, Isabel Santiago and Mario Tadeo.
Songs By An Immigrant Vol. 2 features arrangements and orchestrations by Jaime Lozano and Jesús Altamira. The album is produced by Lozano and Demián Cantú, co-produced by Victoria Kühne and executive produced by Jaime Lozano & The Familia. It was edited and mixed by Cantú and mastered by Oscar Zambrano. Complete production credits can be found in the album booklet HERE.
