Lisa Morales Band on the Hotel Congress Plaza
KXCI Presents! Lisa Morales who dedicates her homecoming performance on the Plaza stage to Roberta Morales. Saturday, November 13th at Hotel Congress Plaza – Doors at 7:30 – Show at 8pm – all ages – Tickets and more information
This show is dedicated to Roberta Morales who sadly passed away in August, 2021.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Morales draws from a creative palette informed by the rhythms, colors and flavors of the Southwest — from the painted-desert skies of her native Tucson, Arizona, where she and cousin Linda Ronstadt grew up, to the sea-salted air of Houston, where she moved at 18, and the history-filled city of San Antonio, where she now lives.
Touring most of 2019 and the few months into 2020 with Rodney Crowell, Los Lonely Boys, Los Lobos, and Lila Downs, Morales continues to record and release music sung in English, Spanish and Spanglish, conveying the promise of new beginnings and confirming that she is a woman in touch with her emotions and inner power. Lisa Morales’ cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps released in late 2019 features long-time friend and inspiration David Hidalgo from Los Lobos and touring mate Henry Garza from Los Lonely Boys on guitars.
On her third, upcoming solo album She Ought to Be King, Lisa Morales once again affirms her stature as a world-class singer-songwriter, with a distinctive perspective and a remarkable capacity for looking both inward and outward. The Texas-based artist draws deeply resonant insights from her own experiences navigating the storms of life and making sense of the complex landscape of relationships.
The 12-song She Ought to Be King maintains the high standard of emotional forthrightness that Morales established on her prior solo efforts Beautiful Mistake and Luna Negra and the Daughter of the Sun. Prior to going solo, she recorded six acclaimed albums with Sisters Morales, the beloved sibling duo in which she partnered with her sister Roberta, who passed away from cancer in August 2021.
Morales’ live performances include shows at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, World Fest, Festivals in Germany, Switzerland, France, Canada, tours with Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys, Rodney Crowell, Allison Krauss, Merle Haggard, George Strait, and Lila Downs.
