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 both her family and her 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
"With an ultra-subtle production of sighing strings, gently brushed drums, and acoustic strumming, the duet achingly delineates a lost relationship. Rodney’s seasoned tones match Lisa’s resonant delivery exquisitely." — Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow Magazine about Flyin’ & Cryin’ duet with Rodney Crowell
"Lisa Morales gives everything to her music and the craft... an absolute enchantress on the stage... When she sings, the crowd feels each emotion. She breathes, we breathe."
— Austin Woman Magazine
"Lisa Morales is a storyteller." — Albuquerque Journal
“one of the best artists of this generation and an incredible storyteller.” — Tejano Backstage Magazine
