Following a long-run in the Houston/San Antonio-based folk duo Sisters Morales, Lisa Morales steps out with an astonishingly beautiful solo debut. Her lyrics are bold and honest in that she unveils pure emotion. She can blow you away by the way her huge voice will rock you, hurt you when she sings the blues, and make you think you think when she’s telling you exactly how she feels. Her guitar playing is strong and sometimes she will take it where her ear goes, not trying to be something she’s not, but rather someone in the zone.
She is in the studio working on her 2nd solo record with George Reiff.
About her first solo album, “Beautiful Mistake”:
“This is one of the most beautiful records that will be released all year. An absolutely flat-out devastating and stunning work of art.”
– Richard Skanse(LoneStar Music Magazine)
Following a long-run in the Houston/San Antonio-based folk duo Sisters Morales, Lisa Morales steps out with an astonishingly beautiful solo debut. 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.”
Her writing on this album is her best to date.
She confronted longtime friend and bassist, Michael “Cornbread” Traylor about his hidden talents and tapped them as producer. He put together a great cast of talented musicians and pulled out some of Morales’ best performances.
Guest performers include Walt Wilkins and Dustin Welch.
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 last CD “Trouble In Mind”. She also co-wrote “Helpless Heart” on Clay Blakers’ “Welcome to the Wasteland” and sang “No More Memories Hangin’ ‘Round” duet with Clay Blaker on “Welcome to the Wasteland”.
Most recently produced “La Americana” for Leticia Rodriguez, reworking some songs from Ava Garza, Rodriguez’ Aunt; Brad Boyers “Montague Hotel”.
She put together a project with Robyn Ludwick and Shelley King, “Good Girls with Bad Intentions” that met rave reviews.

Last year, I did a series of house concerts before my album was released so that I could play the new songs for people in a special setting before they could hear them anywhere else. Well, it was such a great experience that I would love to do it again, but with the full band this time!
We are going into the studio, soon, to record a new album that will be released sometime next year, and we are offering 10 full band, unplugged house concerts. We will play a full night of music, including some new songs from the upcoming album. If you are interested, please message me and we will provide further information. We are only offering 10 of these on a first-come, first-served basis so act fast to reserve your show!
Our latest single, “I Think I Love You”, is officially a week old today. We’re extremely grateful to all of you for sharing the song, telling people about it, and for adding it to your playlists!
