[ARCHIVED] Latin Grammy nominee Gina Chavez performs on March 30

In an industry that looks to define artists, Gina Chávez refuses to fit into a box. From features on NPR’s Tiny Desk to Brené Brown to Colbert, this talented, passionate musician has become a force to be reckoned with.

Chávez — a truly independent recording artist — saw the fruits of her labor pay off last year where she was not only nominated for a Latin Grammy but was tapped to open the Latin Grammy premiere show. She is 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.

Chavez blends the sounds of the Americas with tension and grace. A 13-time Austin Music Award winner and Austin Musician of the Year, she and her band can be seen on PBS in Gina Chavez: Live from the Kate. She has completed a 12-country tour as cultural ambassadors with the U.S. State Department, uniting audiences from Texas to Uzbekistan and Venezuela to Saudi Arabia. Her bilingual album, Up.Rooted, topped the Amazon and Latin iTunes charts following a feature on NPR’s All Things Considered, and her Tiny Desk concert has more than 1.3 million views. Gina’s Spanish-language anthem, “Siete-D,” won the grand prize in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest. ginachavez.com
