Lauded Texas songwriter returns to her hometown to celebrate a new CD.
On her upcoming third solo album, She Ought to Be King, Mexican American vocalist, and singer-songwriter, Lisa Morales once again affirms her world-class stature with a distinctive perspective and a remarkable capacity for looking both inward and outward. The Texas-based artist calls on people to come together in these stressful personal and political times. She demands people’s rights and paints everyday portraits of the pressures of motherhood and womanhood. “I’ve been looking at how strong we women are,” Morales states. “We keep evolving and gaining more confidence with time. We don’t sink into our own shoes- we stand taller in them. The title, She Ought to Be King echoes that.” In the first single, “Freedom”, Morales sings about the power of loving each other as a mother does, and speaking up when we see injustices. The message: simply love thy neighbor.
Like her cousin Linda Ronstadt, Lisa and her sister Roberta grew up in a musical family in Tucson, Arizona, learning to perform traditional Mexican music while developing broad-ranging musical taste prior to moving to Texas. She recorded six albums with Sisters Morales, the beloved sibling duo in which she partnered with Roberta, who sadly passed in 2021. Tickets are $25, and VIP are $35
