“Her songs are richly detailed with slices of life… Hinojosa is a strong, poetic, sensual, and conscious voice.”
– SPIN MAGAZINE –

“A talented songwriter with an understated but utterly unaffected delivery…vivid…touchin g…pointed…playful…en gaging. A rare gift for melody that’s perfect for Hinojosa’s lovely, relaxed soprano.”
– THE WASHINGTON POST –

“Hinojosa is an angel in cowboy boots with one of the sweetest purest songs to be heard in quite awhile. And when she sings in Spanish, her voice has more warmth than that of Linda Ronstadt. Tish Hinojosa delivers music like an angel.”
-HARTFORD COURANT-

“The cultural diversity of Texas lends itself to fascinating music, a style characterized by the natural blending of strong American South flavors with influences from across the Mexican border. One of the finer artists to hail from that backround is Tish Hinojosa., who exhales earthy folk portraits as effortlessly as she moves from Spanish to English in the lyrics of her songs.” THOMAS KINTNER
