We often get emails from artists from all over the world and recently one artist that struck our attention was Vargas. Directamente from Venezuela his music is a blend that is not often heard in Latin Artists mixing Jazz, Pop, Swing, Blues, Rock, and Soul. His fusion of music is very particular and makes you want to keep listening…
Below is a quick Q&A we did with Vargas and hope you like it.
How did you know you wanted to get in the music business? Since I was 7 years old I’ve experimented with different instruments, my father was a music engineer and placed the crazy idea to live for music. Then at 12 years old, I had my first band and wrote songs that led me to share my talents with many artist and performed in various venues in Venezuela. But it wasn’t until 2010 that I launched myself as a solo artist, which led me to work on projects above my ideas, I want to give my music away.
What is the base of your music? My music is based on different personalities and people which makes us human, knowing how to value people and that inner crazy and that every moment is important, that is why we live to appreciate life in all its moments.
Which Musicians inspire you and your music? Simon Diaz, Oscar de Leon, Los Angeles Negros, Los Terricolas, Charly Garcia, Fito Paez, Stevie Wonder, Barry White, Ray Charles, Bjork to name a few.
What influences your musical style? Influences from jazz, pop, soul, swing and blues. A structure that people understand and share with the nostalgia the property that has jazz and its derivatives when you do not know whether to laugh or mourn.
What advice would you give to new artist? The 3 principal rules for me are: Have faith in your work, discipline and constancy… I believe it’s the only way for your project to progress.
