“Texas singer-songwriter Tish Hinojosa has been charming audiences up and down the Rio Grande for years with her signature blend of traditional Mexican song structure, pop melodies, and socially-critical lyrics.” Weekend Edition Sunday, NPR
Tish Hinojosa is a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas. One of 13 children born to Mexican immigrant parents in San Antonio, Tish has dedicated her career to playing music from the southwest. Her unique blend of folk, country, Latino, and pop has far-reaching appeal, garnering her accolades such as a White House concert at the invitation of President and Mrs. Clinton, and collaborations with Joan Baez, Booker T. Jones, Flaco Jimenez, Pete Seeger, and Dwight Yoakam.
She has recorded as an independent artist as well as for A&M, Warner Bros, and Rounder Records ,and has been a featured artist on Austin City Limits, A Prairie Home Companion, and other NPR programs.
With seventeen CDs to her name, Tish’s distinct sound has gained her much critical acclaim. Her new album, West, features original compositions and covers of songs by some of her favorite southwestern musicians. Her version of the late Tim Henderson’s “Maria Consuelo Arroyo” takes on the song’s single immigrant mother raising a family of “dreamers,” and makes it immediately relevant to today’s headlines. Tish turns the Mexican standard “Perfidia,” covered by everyone from Desi Arnaz, Nat King Cole and Charlie Parker to Linda Ronstadt, Freddy Fender and Andrea Bocelli, into a country number, thanks to the plaintive pedal steel, fiddle and accordion.
Tish has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe and continues to draw a loyal and growing audience.
