Lisa Morales

The Latin influences that run throughout Lisa Morales’ music are a nod to Morales’ childhood in Tucson, Arizona, where she grew up surrounded by traditional Mexican music. Music ran in her family. Her cousin, Linda Ronstadt, is a pop legend in her own right, and Morales continued the family tradition by forming a critically-acclaimed duo, Sisters Morales, with her sister Roberta. The siblings released six albums together before Roberta passed away in August 2021. Now carrying the torch for her family and heritage as a solo artist, Lisa Morales continues to blur the boundaries between genre and culture. Morales’ songwriting talents live in both English and Spanish and bring to the forefront her powerful vocals and her belief in the power of women. “One of the most multifaceted artists to watch.” — Rolling Stone “The depth in Morales’ agile vocals resounds especially clear on the Spanish-sung ‘Suéltame’… Altogether, a varied collection of Southwestern Americana, rich with emotion and motivated with a lot to say.” — The Austin Chronicle
I moved to San Antonio in 2001. I would like to create a show that combines my Mexican upbringing,Americana adding mariachi instruments and San Antonio guests.

Artist Statement of Work

Tell us about your work (style, approach, philosophy, subject and/or theme):

My work style is creating music and lyrics that evoke emotions--nothing is performed as if it doesn't matter. I would like to show that covid didn't stop musicians from putting together large group performances instead of pressing a button on a computer to hear a recorded instrument with no emotion attached both sonically and visually. I would love to add special guests from San Antonio and possibly from Austin. Right now I have a 4 piece band I perform with but I would like to add a few mariachis and accordion/keyboards. I would like to have lights/sound company that add to it. I would like to contact the performing arts Theaters to see if they are interested in hosting there. I have toured with Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys for years and have performed with them at San Antonio venues.
