Tish Hinojosa and her Big Band

Originally from San Antonio, Hinojosa spent the past nine years living, writing, composing, collaborating, and exploring in Hamburg, Germany. Having released her last CD, Our Little Planet – a self penned, 12 song collection of traditional bluegrass and her trademark sound of contemporary folk and Tex-Mex, in 2008, she allowed the sights, sounds and historic culture of her St. Pauli neighborhood to work their magic on her newest body of work.

Moved by this funky corner of the world where the Beatles lived and performed, Hinojosa strolled the streets of the red light district, retreated to cafes, traversed the harbor, and paid homage to the museums and theaters dedicated to music appreciation which is never far from her heart.

As the youngest of thirteen children born to Mexican immigrant parents, Hinojosa grew up listening to traditional Mexican songs as well as the pop and folk stations of the 60s on her parents’ radio. Inspired by these diverse influences, her career took her to New Mexico and then to Nashville. Performing with legendary country musician, Michael Martin Murphy, inspired her to begin writing her own songs in English and Spanish.

With accolades that include playing at the White House at the invitation of President Clinton and Hillary Clinton, Linda Ronstadt recording her own version of Tish’s song Donde Voy, and teaming up with artists like Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, Nanci Griffith, Pete Seeger, Flaco Jimenez, and Los Lobos, Hinojosa’s sound has an undeniable and far-reaching appeal.

“Simply put, Hinojosa is a first class songwriter”

“A talented songwriter with an understated but utterly unaffected delivery…vivid…touching…pointed…playful…engaging…A rare gift for melody that’s perfect for Hinojosa’s lovely, relaxed soprano.”

“Her songs are richly detailed slices of life…Hinojosa’s is a strong, poetic, sensual, and conscious voice.”

“This tremendously gifted and uncommonly diverse singer-songwriter from Texas…. Subsumed herself in the thematic substance and graceful flow of her music — an act of great purity made possible by her rare purity of voice.”
