I thought I’d use the comment area of the album recognition you’ve received in the not too distant past for my own praises.

I’d like to thank Alt Latino for introducing me to your music. They have never steered me wrong in many years.

That out of the way, I’ve enjoyed Up.Rooted on Spotify, and just bought my digital copy on Amazon. Sorry it took so long. Thank you for your amazing work. Will You Love really touched me with its elegance and richness. Todo Cambia, Maiz, all the others, so beautiful. All your recognition at SXSW 2015 so well deserved.

Thank you for you providing the album liner notes on your website. I miss the CD days wih the album lyrics, musicians, thank yous. Thanks for giving us that deeper look at your creative talent. Much respect, and looking forward to your future projects.

    Sean, thank you for the wonderful message and for listening to the album. I’m so glad you’re loving it as much as I do! Looks like I need to make my way to Wisconsin! Cheers -g

Mande? John Lennon Songwriting Contest – Grand Prize Winner!

user by Gina Chavez
calendarFriday, 05 September

It was a relaxing Labor Day. A nice late start followed by free yoga — thank you Austin and Yoga Con Amor — and a caffeine fix at Genuine Joe, our favorite neighborhood hang, when a certain someone looked at her phone and saw that… GANAMOS! We WON the Latin category of the The John Lennon Songwriting Contest! We tried to keep our squeals and hugs to a minimum but we definitely got some stares as we ran outside to begin the jumping up and down. Days later it’s still hard to believe that “Siete-D,” a musical tribute to our experiences in El Salvador and the girls we taught who are now family, has won one of the most important songwriting contests in the U.S.! Even cooler, I just got word that the leading newspaper in El Salvador, La Prensa, wants an interview… que locura!

Stay tuned on that. Mientras tanto, felicidades to all the Session 1 finalists and winners. GANAMOS, SUBE!

Gina Chavez, Grand Prize Winner, John Lennon Songwriting Contest

Yesterday I met Samuel.

user by Gina Chavez
calendarThursday, 14 August

He was at the bus stop near S. Congress Ave. and Oltorf waving his arms for us to pull over. Our Mobile Loaves & Fishes truck was still full of food and clothes but Samuel wasn’t hungry.

I found myself in one of those potentially awkward, but truly raw and beautiful moments, praying with a grown man outside of the HEB. Thank you, Samuel, for inviting me into your life for a moment; for sharing your struggles and wisdom; and for reigniting my own faith by fearlessly seeking human connection and a reason to hope. I know every second it’s a battle to say no to the addiction, but you’re not alone. You are loved.

#FireWater is the story of addiction. It’s not something you can just turn off, but it’s not who you are either. Samuel, this one’s for you.

THREE WORDS: All. THINGS. Considered!

calendarFriday, 18 April

Tune in to your local National Public Radio affiliate station this afternoon for the nationally-syndicated show All Things ConsideredWhy? Because I’ll be on it! I am beyond excited, and extremely humbled, to have not only visited the mothership of public radio — the NPR offices in Washington, D.C. — while touring the East Coast last week, but to have been interviewed by the director of ATC herself, Monika Evstatieva. Tis a Good Friday, indeed…

Black Fret 2014 Nominee Gina Chavez

Last night, as I was standing outside the MBar in Boyle Heights (East LA) during one of my favorite shows of the Cali tour, I got this phone call. You know, the one where they tell you that you could win $10,000! Bogus, right? It would be, except for the fact that the call was from Black Fret, the newest bestest music patronage organization in town and the $10K grants are REAL! This incredible membership of Austin music-lovers is supporting local music in a big way and I am blown away to be included in the inaugural list of Black Fret nominees — check out who else is on the list…
