Los Lonely Boys: “We decided to call this album Revelation because we want to make music that reveals something to people about their lives and their world,” says Jojo Garza. He’s talking about the new release by Los Lonely Boys, the close-knit Texas trio that the bassist/vocalist shares with his brothers Henry (vocals, guitar) and Ringo (drums, vocals). “As musicians and artists, we’re here to connect with people, and to share our view of things.” Revelation — to be released on the band’s own LonelyTone imprint Jan. 21, 2014, in association with the respected Austin-based indie Playing in Traffic — is a landmark release for the siblings. While maintaining the infectiously melodic mix of bluesy rock ’n’ roll and rootsy brown-eyed soul that’s long endeared Los Lonely Boys to its fiercely loyal fan base, Revelation adds an expansive range of new sonic elements, e.g. the conjunto touches of “Blame It On Love,” the reggae groove of “Give A Little More,” the rustic acoustic textures of “It’s Just My Heart Talkin’ and the baroque pop elements of “There’s Always Tomorrow.” Lisa Morales: As a songwriter, Lisa’s songs unfold like masterpiece movies. With a rich and visual command of language – both in English and in Spanish, she captures the emotions of love and loss and all the shades of life in between in such vivid detail. Lisa lets a song’s storyline dictate the sonic approach she takes. She can rock with anyone if that’s what’s called for or she can bring it down to the near whisper of two people sharing a moment that’s intimate and raw. Lisa’s music distills human emotions down to universal truths. She captures a moment - no matter how grand or how small – with such visual and verbal clarity, you see and feel what people in her songs are living in that moment. A rare songwriter and performer of clarity, emotion, and delivery. An artist with insight and vision and an acute ability to share it.
