Biography

Tish Hinojosa (born December 6, 1955 San Antonio, Texas) is a folksinger recording in both Spanish and English. Hinojosa was the youngest of 13 children.

From the White House to el barrio, Tish Hinojosa has enchanted, enlightened and entertained countless listeners with her distinctive cross-cultural music. In the process, she has become one of the most acclaimed and beloved artists in the contemporary Latin and folk scene. With a purity of voice and a vision that also embraces pop, rock, tejano and international styles into her music, she reflects modern America’s multicultural richness with sincerity, heart and a winning musicality.

Family, music and a multicultural perspective were hallmarks of Hinojosa’s years growing up in San Antonio, where she began performing as a teen. Alongside the traditional Mexican songs she inherited from her parents, she was inspired by the pop and rock artists she and her older siblings listened to along with the folk revival of the early 1960s. Performing in her hometown as well as doing stints in Taos and Nashville, she eventually landed in the renowned Austin, TX music scene. Her debut album, “Homeland”, found Hinojosa weaving all the threads of her musical ethos into a stunning tapestry that immediately put her on the international musical map. With her release, “Culture Swing”, Hinojosa won the NAIRD Award for Best Folk Album.

Over the eleven subsequent releases, countless tours of North America and Europe, Hinojosa developed a loving and loyal audience and has explored a wide range of musical expression. Her music and social activism has won her numerous awards and accolades, including recognition by Fox TV’s Bravo Honors and a Las Primeras (The Firsts) Award from MANA, the largest organization of Latina women.
