Sylvia has re-recorded her mega-hit “Nobody” with a fresh and timeless production that also honors the original. “Nobody” is the first single released to radio from her brand new CD, "SECOND BLOOM — The Hits Re-Imagined.” Sylvia breathes new life into 10 of her biggest hits including, Drifter, Snapshot, Tumbleweed, Like Nothing Ever Happened, Fallin’ In Love, Cry Just A Little Bit, I Love You By Heart, and Sweet Yesterday. She also includes, You Can’t Go Back Home which is a Sylvia favorite from her 1982 "Just Sylvia" album and serves as a metaphor for her approach to re-recording her hits.

One of 13 children born to Mexican immigrant parents in San Antonio, Hinojosa has dedicated her career to playing music from the southwest, starting out in Tejano before moving on to singer/songwriter folk, border music and country. Hinojosa’s new originals are at the heart of the collection, from the romantic tribute to the missions in her hometown (“Church of the Mission Bell”) to channeling Patsy Cline in a bittersweet country shuffle (“Can’t Say It Matters Anymore”) and even a co-write with son Adam Hinojosa-Barker (“I Can Be the Wind”), one of two children from her 20-year marriage to entertainment lawyer Craig Barker. There are also covers of songs by some of her favorite southwestern musicians. Her version of the late Tim Henderson’s “Maria Consuelo Arroyo” takes on the song’s single immigrant mother raising a family of “dreamers,” and makes it immediately relevant to today’s headlines. She originally performed Jimmy LaFave’s “Only One Angel,” for a memorial concert at Austin’s Paramount Theatre, turning this recorded take into a remembrance of a dear friend. Tish turns the Mexican standard “Perfidia,” covered by everyone from Desi Arnaz, Nat King Cole and Charlie Parker to Linda Ronstadt, Freddy Fender and Andrea Bocelli, into a country number, thanks to the plaintive pedal steel, fiddle and accordion. She joins her self-described “mentor” Michael Martin Murphey for his “What Am I Doing Hangin’ Round?” a hit for the Monkees when he offered it to fellow Screen Gems songwriter – and San Antonio/Austin pal -- Michael Nesmith. Hinojosa originally started out in New Mexico as a back-up singer in Murphey’s band, where he took her under his wing and encouraged the young performer to pursue her singer/songwriter muse. Tish’s personal style means West has plenty of blood – and raw emotion -- on its tracks, and a number of wounds, too, but Tish Hinojosa prefers to dwell on the positive. On the album’s final track, “Color It Blue,” for which she wrote lyrics over music by co-producers Dykhuis and Dolan, she ends on a typical note of uplift. “Lose yourself to the moon,” she declares, still the wanderlust spirit, ready to move forward to the next stage of an already-impressive career. “This album happened in such an organic, beautiful way,” she declares. West is a welcome addition to a resume which features releases on A&M, Warner Bros., Rounder, Watermelon and Lone Star, a command performance for President Bill Clinton and Hillary at the White House with Robert Redford, and numerous prestigious honors, including the NAIRD Indie Folk Album of the Year for 1992’s Culture Swing. Tish Hinojosa’s trip continues its long and winding road. “The journey hasn’t always been easy,” she says. “These are our life’s adventures. Sometimes we hit it good; sometimes we hit it bad. On West, Tish Hinojosa has turned that pain to pleasure with music which allows those scars to gradually fade away.
