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 history-filled city of San Antonio, where she now lives.
On her upcoming third solo album, She Ought to Be King, MexicanAmerican 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 12-song She Ought to Be King is produced by noted singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist David Garza. Freedom features Santana cofounder Gregg Rolie, who plays organ and provides backing vocals. It also features bassist Tim Lefebvre, keyboardist Rachel Eckroth and drummer Beth Goodfellow.
She Ought to Be King maintains the high standard of emotional forthrightness that Morales established on her earlier solo efforts Beautiful Mistake and Luna Negra & the Daughter of the Sun. Her solo albums won universally ecstatic reviews. Lone Star Music called Beautiful Mistake “one of the most beautiful records that will be released all year…an absolutely flat-out devastating and stunning work of art.” Rolling Stone called her,”… one of the most multifaceted artists to watch.” The later album revealed her Mexican heritage, both in poetic and lyrical rhythm, weaving Spanglish which sets her apart stylistically.
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."
