Lisa Morales

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 of San Antonio, and the music-filled city of Austin where she now lives.

Her upcoming album, She Ought to Be King was produced by noted singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist David Garza and features bassist Tim Lefebvre, keyboardist Rachel Eckroth and drummer Beth Goodfellow. The album also features key contributions from such notable guests as Rodney Crowell, who co-wrote and sings co-lead vocal on the heart-tugging “Flyin’ and Cryin,” which also features Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo on accordion; and Santana co-founder Gregg Rolie, who plays organ and provides backing vocals on the rousing, and the timely topical “Freedom.”
