Tish Hinojosa

Tish Hinojosa has drawn numerous critical accolades for her borderless approach to music, blending Mexican folk and country music with a modern singer/songwriter sensibility and touches of pop. Born Leticia Hinojosa in San Antonio in 1955, Hinojosa's parents were Mexican immigrants, and she soaked up their music as well as the area's country sounds and the socially relevant rock & roll of the '60s. She started playing guitar as a teenager, singing folk and pop songs in local clubs; she also sang commercial jingles for a Spanish-language radio station, and recorded a few Latin pop songs for a local label as well. In 1979, she moved to Taos, NM, and eventually landed a job singing backup with Michael Martin Murphey. In 1983, she relocated to Nashville and tried to make it as a singer and/or songwriter, but found that she didn't fit the mold of what record companies wanted, despite recording a one-off single for Curb ("I'll Pull You Through"). In 1985, she moved back to Taos, and two years later completed the self-released cassette Taos to Tennessee. In 1988, she moved to Austin and hit the city's thriving roots music scene, where she knew her distinctiveness would find a better reception.

Hinojosa quickly landed a deal with A&M, and in 1989 she issued her official debut album, Homeland, which received highly complimentary reviews. Her next effort, Culture Swing, was released by the respected roots label Rounder in 1992 to even greater acclaim; thanks to its free-thinking musical cross-pollination, the National Association of Independent Record Distributors named it Folk Album of the Year. Around the same time, Watermelon issued three archival recordings, including a live album, a holiday album, and the first appearance of Taos to Tennessee on CD. Thanks to the attention surrounding Culture Swing, Hinojosa landed a deal with Warner Bros., debuting for the label with 1994's Destiny's Gate. Although her time with Warner signaled a more polished approach (some naysayers said sanitized), she also continued to record more specific projects for Rounder, starting with 1995's Frontejas, an overview of Texas/Mexico border music that won massive respect in the Latin music community. Dreaming from the Labyrinth followed on Warner in 1996, and that same year she issued a bilingual children's album, Cada Niño (Every Child), on Rounder. Frustrated by Warner's reluctance to put out more of her material, Hinojosa eventually secured her release from the label and returned to Rounder. In the meantime, she continued her activism on behalf of Latino and women's issues, even as her 20-year marriage broke apart. Finally, after a four-year absence from recording, Hinojosa returned in 2000 with Sign of Truth. In 2001 Texas Music Group re-released the classic Taos to Tennessee, and in 2003 the holiday album From Texas for a Christmas Night and a live best-of record were both issued. In 2005 Hinojosa released Heart Wide Open, her first studio album in five years, and the following year Retrospective, on Varese, came out. Another new set, Our Little Planet, appeared in 2009. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Just learned that Tish will perform @ CSU, Fort Collins, CO March 28 as part of our Cesar Chavez celebration. So glad to see her come back to Fort Collins!
I first heard her on A Prairie Home Companion, then found out she was appearing at Poor David's Pub (when they were still on Lower Greenville Ave.). It was a fantastic concert. I had her in my CD player for a long time.

I saw her in December, last month, and she look/sounds as fabulous and creative as always. I first heard her on radio WCBE in 1994 and she quickly became one of my favorites also.
TISH HINOJOSA HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE IN A VERY SHORT TIME
My favorite song by this artist is the one she is singing at the time! Wether it be in spainish or english it doesn't matter. The quality of her voice comes through.
Note to libbyibl Nanci doesn't sing in spainish! I also like her too!
Came across her by accident on another on-line radio station. I was instantly a fan. Easy and fun folk music.
I like her, she sounds a lot like Nanci Griffith
Love her......fou n d her a number of years ago on Austin City Limits. Now having left Texas myself and living not far from Taos, I feel even closer to this wonderful ballad singer and the heart she puts into her music. Have told a number of people about her over the years.
If you haven't listened to Ms Hinojosa sing/ play Corazon Viajero (Wandering Heart)on Culture Swing you have missed it all. You don't have the speak the language to love this song. Best regards to Tish : JRT Texas
