Austin-based singer-songwriter Gina Chavez blends the sounds of the Americas with tension and grace. Only the second Austinite and the third Latina born in the continental U.S. to receive a Latin Grammy nomination in the history of the awards, this queer, bilingual, genre-bending musician is a force to be reckoned with.
A 12-time Austin Music Award winner — her honors include Female Vocalist of the Year in 2019, and Austin Musician of the Year in 2015 — Chavez explores the true meaning of “Americana" as she and her band take audiences on a high-energy journey through Latin America and beyond.
