Lisa Morales

Fri, November 27 / 7 PM

Get Tickets

Ms. Morales demonstrates that physical size is not real size. She shows up with a quiet, a sad, a sensitive, a strong, a big voice and a big message for us all couched in the beauty of philosophical love songs, not only romantic but those other kinds of love we all encounter; soulful poetry about eternal human concerns in our contemporary lives.

The arrangements, the melodies, the excellence of the music, the musicians, and the technicians, her voice with its subtle expressiveness giving deep meaning to her words, I haven’t the gift to write it down to get across the effect the songs have had on my heart.

The way she uses language, repeats certain words or lines, the unexpected next thought, and the variety of song formats all fitting within the general realm of rock, astonishing and moving!

It’s all right if words fail me!

Carolyn Wonderland

“Carolyn Wonderland is the real deal! She’s an amazing guitar player. She whistled a solo. She even played the trumpet! And damn, can she sing.” – Los Angeles Times

“A dollop of Janis Joplin, a slice of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a big load of soulful individuality… that’s Wonderland, a seething-hot Texas singer-guitarist. And she can write, too! Produced by Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson, Miss Understood focuses on tough yet vulnerable blues, but also captures the melodic soul of classic American song… No wonder Dylan is an avowed fan.” – Daniel Gewertz, Boston Herald

 “When she blisters the guitar and cocks her head fetchingly to sing her songs like “I’m Innocent” she stands in the good company of Sue Foley, Debbie Davies, and Bonnie Raitt. But when she whistles, as she does with disarming ease on another of her compositions “I’m the Man,” or picks up the trumpet, she’s one of a kind.” – Margaret Moser, Austin Chronicle

Slaid Cleaves

Slaid Cleaves lives with his wife of 19 years, Karen Cleaves, in the Hill Country outside Austin, Texas. While Karen books the shows, the flights, the hotels, and the rental cars, designs, orders and sells the CDs and T-shirts, pays the band, updates the web site, answers fan questions, does the taxes and makes dinner, Slaid writes his little songs (and fixes things around the house). 

They travel around the world together while Slaid plays for fans far and wide and gets all the glory. If it wasn’t for Karen, Slaid would be carrying all he owned in a shoe box, scrounging around for a happy hour gig.

“I’m glad I found Slaid Cleaves, because my life would have been poorer without him. You’ll feel the same, I think, when you listen to this beautifully crafted album. Listen, go to one of Slaid’s shows, take a friend, and pass on the news: Not all the good guys wear hats.” —Stephen King

“A sharply observant songwriter with a deep appreciation for the ageless fundamentals of folk, country, and rock … one of the country’s most compelling roots artists.” —Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
