A genre-bending musician, Gina Chavez is a truly independent recording artist.

Why you should listen

In an industry that looks to define artists, Gina Chavez refuses to fit into a box. With features on NPR's Tiny Desk, Unlocking Us with Brené Brown and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Chavez was nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2020 and tapped to open the Latin Grammy premiere show with her first all-Spanish language release, "La Que Manda."

From her half-Mexican, half-Swiss-German background to her faith as a married Catholic lesbian to her music (which she sings in both English and Spanish), the Latinx pop-rock artist is unapologetically herself -- and wants to open the door for others to be themselves, too.
