Update: Unfortunately, Alex Vargas was removed from the SXSW schedule. Hopefully we will be able to catch him on tour.
Alex Vargas’ soulful vocals will bring chills and the haunting music will remain with you.
From his bio – Born in Copenhagen but based in London for much of his life, 25 year-old singer-songwriter Alex Vargas has quietly clocked up over 1 million YouTube views and been referred to as a ‘superstar in the making’ by leading music industry tastemakers in both the UK and the US.
‘Howl’ is a collection of personal songs that Alex describes as, ‘For my loved ones, and some lost ones’. All songs are produced by Alex and his guitarist Tommy Sheen.
Half Danish, half South American, Alex first picked up the guitar at the age of 15 and started knocking out tunes inspired by his parents’ record collection. At 17 he played main support slot to US artist Beth Hart in front of an audience of 3000 music fans – totally blown away by the young singer
Soon after leaving school he moved to the UK where he toured the club circuit and formed the band ‘Vagabond’ who signed to Geffen Records (Universal) after the label’s president heard a 30 second clip of Alex singing. The band had a top 30 album, two sell-out headliner tours, as well as slots performing at Glastonbury, T in the Park and V music festivals.
