Gina Chavez is a bilingual singer-songwriter based in Austin, TX. 

Singing in both English and Spanish, her record Up.Rooted topped both the Amazon and Latin iTunes charts following a feature on NPR's All Things Considered. Her Tiny Desk concert made NPR’s top 15 of 2015.

In this wide-ranging conversation we talk about her Latin roots, releasing music during the pandemic, breaking through the noise as an independent artist, learning how to step back from the comparison game, and self-giving love. She also speaks on her most recent song Ella (about persisting in times of trouble), and her theme music on Brené Brown’s new podcast.

Gina Chavez: “Ella” [PREMIERE]

Song of the Day – KUTX
Episode artwork
Read more

Queer, Catholic, and unabashedly fueled by feminism, multi-ethnic native Austinite Gina Chavez has heralded in unheard iterations of Latin music going back to her chart-topping 2014 acoustic bi-lingual record Up.Rooted. A decided shift from the 2007 acoustic folk-pop debut Hanging Spoons, Chavez pushed her sound even further out of the comfort zone with 2018’s R&B-soul-dominated Lightbeam, favoring the twelve-time Austin Music Award winner’s mesmerizing vocals over her once relied-upon guitar. Since starting her songwriting career over a decade back, Chavez’s undeniable talent has given her access to international tours (including appearances as a U.S. State Department cultural ambassador) and exposure through ACL Fest, NPR’s Tiny DeskFirst Listen, and All Things Considered, as well as a platform to co-found private college fund Niñas Arriba (which benefits underprivileged girls in El Salvador) alongside her wife.

With a lifetime of experiences marred by critical acclaim and infectious popularity under her belt, Gina Chavez is channeling her observations of women’s oppression into her upcoming fourth release, La Que Manda, or The Woman in Charge. True to its title, La Que Manda sees Chavez’s confidence higher than it’s ever been before, striving to create equalizing Latinx anthems for the gender-downtrodden across the globe. La Que Manda is out May 15th, but just today Gina Chavez shared a Spanish-language single featuring producer Lina Briceno and engineer Fernando Lodeiro, who’ve received two Latin Grammys and two Grammys, respectively. The result is a bold trap beat that bears witness to Chavez like we’ve never heard before and sets the stage for the full album next month, “Ella”!
