Austin-based, Latin roots-rocker premieres brand new music video for the single ‘Lil Lobo’ off her seventh album; official album release party at the Continental Club on Saturday, May 26
(AUSTIN, TEXAS – May 7, 2018) – Multi-talented and beloved Texas artist Patricia Vonne premieres the music video for her single, “Lil’ Lobo,” with the San Antonio Express News. The premiere can be found here. The music video was directed by Marcel Rodriguez.
“The song ‘Lil’ Lobo’ is about the challenges of dating in the online age… you have to watch out for wolves,” said Patricia Vonne. “Joe King Carrasco and I co-wrote the song and Rick Del Castillo produced. Joe King invited us to film at his ranch in Llano which he built himself. It looks like a movie set! The video captures Joe’s crazy cool explosive personality. He always gives 200 percent and is a joy to work with. My brother Marcel shot it in three hours and I edited it like a kid in a candy store!”
“Lil’ Lobo” is the second single off Patricia’s seventh album, “Top of the Mountain,” set to be released on Bandolera Records on Friday, May 25. Her first single “Tidal Wave,” co-written with Alejandro Escovedo, premiered with Glide Magazine on April 13. You can watch the music video here. Vonne has made a name for herself around the world as a multi-faceted musician, songwriter, actress, filmmaker and more. Now, with the release of her latest project, Vonne is positioned to once again enchant music lovers as she flows between genres and creates a sound only she could conjure.
There will be an official Austin album release show on Saturday, May 26 at the Continental Club, located at 1315 South Congress Ave. Patricia Vonne hits the stage at 10 p.m. followed by Joe King Carrasco at 12 a.m. Vonne will also be hosting album release events in San Antonio and Houston.

Hailed as a “Renaissance woman of Austin, Texas” by the New York Times,Patricia Vonne has claimed many titles in her illustrious career: singer, songwriter, bandleader, actress, activist and award-winning filmmaker. As one of 10 wildly creative offspring growing up in San Antonio, she and her siblings were encouraged to find their own creative paths. Exploring various artistic outlets throughout her career, she found herself immersed in writing, recording music and developing her musicianship. This ninth-generation Tejana “has absorbed just about every indigenous musical style Texas has on offer, and can summon anyone in the flick of a castanet or guitar pick,” notes the Houston Press. Noted as “an excellent singer songwriter” (Uncut) and “a beguiling storyteller” (Harp) with a “dramatic songwriting flair” (No Depression), Vonne is a one-of-a-kind “Tex-Mex spitfire with a Rock n Roll heart” (Austin American Statesman).
Now, with the release of her seventh album, “Top of the Mountain,” (by Bandolera Records) Vonne reaches new heights in her musical career. Following on the heels of her acclaimed all-Spanish album, 2015’s “Viva Bandolera” (which made the Top Eight list in the Huffington Post), Vonne’s new effort incorporates all the multi-faceted components that define her unique musical persona: rock, folk, flamenco, bilingual Tex-Mex and Latin strands that, taken together, form a rich and colorful tapestry.
The defiant, stand-your-ground title track sets a declamatory tone as the rest of the album winds a sinuous path through the border radio groove of “Lil’ Lobo,” the careening rocker “Graceland Trip,” “Madre de Perla,” a flamenco-flavored tribute to Vonne’s mother, the spaghetti western soundtrack that is “Western Blood,” and much more. Featuring co-writes with Joe “King” Carrasco, Alejandro Escovedo, Willie Nile, Steven Medina Hufsteter of the Cruzados and longtime performing and songwriting partner Robert LaRoche, “Top of the Mountain” allowed Vonne to explore new aspects of her multi-cultural creativity.
Here is what the press are saying about Vonne:
“Imagine a young Chrissie Hynde fronting the Mavericks with a little help from Calexico,” WORD.
“A bilingual tour-de force melding eclectic with electric and exudes an elegance seldom associated with rock. Vonne is quickly taking her place among Texas’ musical treasures,” Austin Chronicle.
“With a sultry, blood red vocal style and a dramatic songwriting flair, the strikingly exotic Patricia Vonne combines south-of-the-border mariachi sizzle, southwestern mythology, Texas roots-rock and spaghetti western cinematic sweep on this compelling bilingual effort,” No Depression.
