“Simply put, Hinojosa is a first class songwriter” — Chicago Tribune
When it comes to finding inspiration, sometimes you have to put a few miles between yourself and your hometown, or, even your country. This is exactly what Tish Hinojosa did for her 2013 album After the Fair.
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.
