Mexican born Natalia LaFourcade has been making music since the late 90’s when she was part of the trio girl band called ‘Twist’. She then decided to go solo at the tender age of 17 releasing her first album in 2003 simply titled Natalia LaFourcade. She has since released 4 other albums, but her biggest breakthrough came with her much acclaimed and personal album to date ‘Hasta La Raiz’ that garnered 6 Latin Grammy nominations and 5 wins including Record of the Year, and Song of the Year for her song ‘Hasta La Raiz’ off the same album.

About Alex Espinosa

Hey, I am Alex Espinosa, a music supervisor at PlayNetwork with over 30 years of music experience.

As the youngest of three, I have my brothers to thank for my eclectic taste in music, which ranges from the Beatles to AC/DC, David Bowie to Radiohead—plus throw in my early teen years and you have to add Post Punk and New Wave. I really just love all things music.

It all started at 16 with my first job at a record store called Licorice Pizza, which grew into radio station work, then on to Muzak for 12 years before landing PlayNetwork in 2011. Now, working in the industry for over 30 years, I can honestly say the best thing is being able to discover music from all over the world that is new to someone’s ears.

If I am not trying to find that perfect song for a brand partner, or contracting with Slacker Radio, you may catch me at good dive bar with some great scotch or perhaps catching a live show (or two or three). But my favorite thing to do is spend time with my wife and son.
