Fresh off of two more wins at the 2019 Austin Music Awards (making her a 12-time winner), multi-ethnic Latin pop songstress Gina Chavez stops at THE KATE as she tours her latest studio (EP) release, Lightbeam, which was born from her journey to find and marry the love of her life. Her previous album, Up.Rooted *, topped Amazon and Latin iTunes charts, and her NPR Tiny Desk Concert boasts close to one million views. On THE KATE, Chavez leads her band and the audience on a musical voyage colored by elements of indie-folk, cumbia, blues, and Latin pop. Her interview reveals her struggle to find herself as she explains that, "No one fits into a box well. We need to stop making boxes."
