As a songwriter, Lisa’s songs unfold like masterpiece movies. With a rich and visual command of language – both in English and in Spanish, she captures the emotions of love and loss and all the shades of life in between in such vivid detail. Lisa lets a song’s storyline dictate the sonic approach she takes. She can rock with anyone if that’s what’s called for or she can bring it down to the near whisper of two people sharing a moment that’s intimate and raw. Lisa’s music distills human emotions down to universal truths. She captures a moment - no matter how grand or how small – with such visual and verbal clarity, you see and feel what people in her songs are living in that moment. A rare songwriter and performer of clarity, emotion, and delivery. A artist with insight and vision and an acute ability to share it.
Lisa has also worn producers hat with highly acclaimed production on Hayes Carlls’ “Flowers & Liquor; co-wrote “Waiting For the Stars to Fall” with Hayes Carll on his CD “Trouble In Mind”, and also toured with him."
Lisa is also one of the sisters in the highly acclaimed Houston/San Antonio-based songwriter-mexican-folk duo Sisters Morales.
Richard Skanse of Lone Star Music writes, "Lisa Morales steps out with an astonishingly beautiful solo debut that is as cathartic as it is devastating in its fearless confrontation of grief (a double-whammy dose over both the loss of a parent and a relationship in apparent dire straits). The whole record is littered with pieces of broken heart, but even when she declares “I Am the Weakest,” “Fool That I Am” or “You Forgot to Love Me,” Morales’ words and voice resonate with strength and resilience. And in “Looking for Something Beautiful,” she storms out of the depths of despair with the most defiant, cheer-worthy cry of stubborn hope this side of Lucinda Williams’ “Passionate Kisses.”
