AUSTIN SINGER-SONGWRITER CHRISTINA CAVAZOS
CELEBRATES MILE MARKER, HER THIRD EP IN THREE YEARS,
WITH MAY 23 RELEASE PARTY AT SAHARA LOUNGE
Momentum Continues to Build for Rising Americana/Folk Talent
As She Turns 18, Graduates High School and Heads to College This Fall
AUSTIN, Texas — Sometimes one single moment really can change your life. For Christina Cavazos, that moment occurred when she wrote her first song at 14 — and unlocked her future. Four years later, she’s racked up accolades galore, scored herself a spot at one of the nation’s most prestigious universities and recorded her third EP, Mile Marker, which she’ll release on May 25. Cavazos is celebrating her achievements with a release party on Wednesday, May 23, at Austin’s Sahara Lounge, 1413 Webberville Road. Showtime for the 21-and-over show is 9 p.m.; admission is $5.
Cavazos, a Berklee College of Music summer program scholarship winner and two-time Old Settler’s Music Festival Youth Competition finalist, will attend New York University’s Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music, part of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, this fall. But first, she’ll don a cap and gown and collect her diploma from Austin’s School for Performing and Visual Arts, where her musical talents were well-nurtured.
Mile Marker, produced by Charlie Magnone, features six Cavazos-penned originals delivered in her lovely, sure soprano voice. Together, these dream-pop landscapes capture the sound of an already mature young woman as she blossoms into adulthood.
Premiering the track, “Forever,” thedailycountry.com called it “a stunning, dreamy ballad,” adding, “[its] tender lyricism and enveloping melody, magically transports you.”
Austin American-Statesman music critic Peter Blackstock, who picked her second EP, Cold, as one of 2017’s three top EPs by Austin artists, says of her work, “Cavazos casts beautifully dreamy spells with her clear, high voice drifting above smartly low-key arrangements that allow the compelling melodies of her original tunes to shine.”
With Mile Marker, she not only shines, she dazzles.
