THREE WORDS: All. THINGS. Considered!

user by Gina Chavez
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…

CALI TOUR FOOD BLOG: Tour diary of a gluten-free, dairy-free, pescatarian

user by Gina Chavez
calendarThursday, 20 March

The last time I toured, I somehow managed to eat nothing but food bars for 4 days. While I do love me some NuGo, Zing, Thunderbird and Bearded Brothers food bars, something tells me one must eat a real meal every now and then, haha. I’m also no cook, so, I shall keep a mini food diary while I’m on the road (mainly to make myself accountable to keeping my body healthy ;) . I’m off to California today. Here’s to kickass shows and yummy eats!

PopMatters premiers “Gotta Get” feat. Grupo Fantasma

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 1.08.39 AM

The fun part is here! After endless hours of prep work, I’m so excited to share the first taste of my new album, UP.ROOTED!

“On her new album UP.ROOTED, Gina Chavez traverses many Latin forms, including cumbia and bossa nova, merging them with the singer-songwriter aesthetic of major influences such as Patty Griffin and Ani DiFranco. The result is genre stew that is a perfect representation of what “Americana” really means. In other words, Americana is about more than the US, as it’s really the indigenous roots music of the Americas and it’s multi-ethnic to the bone. Chavez‘s many fans supported the production of UP.ROOTED through a highly successful Kickstarter campaign that allowed her to bring on some major Austin talent as players on the record, including Adrian Quesada and David Pulkingham on guitars; Glenn Fukunaga on bass; the Grupo Fantasma Horns; the Tosca String Quartet; and Michael Ramos on keys and accordion.”
