Kate Vargas

Kate Vargas premieres 'Second Skin' + plays Bowery Electric on 04/16

Back in 2014, we shared the enjoyably gritty music from New York-based Americana songwriter Kate Vargas. Today, the New Mexico-hailing, Berklee College of Music graduate premieres on this very blog her latest single, “Second Skin” (streaming below). Featuring The Reckless Daughters and ambling to a guitar-lined looseness reminiscent of Tom Waits’ swampy gem “Clap Hands,” the bluesy track is as ruggedly resilient as its title suggests, climbing back up from down-home hardache. Don't miss Kate at The Bowery Electric on 4/16. – Zach Weg Photograph by: Wick Beavers


A noteworthy NYC storyteller: Kate Vargas

There doesn't seem to be very much that singer-songwriter-storyteller Kate Vargas is too afraid to reveal. Listen as her tales of love ('If You Lose Me') and the devil ('Throw the Devil Back') weave their way through a riotous brew of folk, blues and rock, delivered by an undeniably unique voice, and arrangements that sound old timey but - at a close listen - are not. It's like the sound of a favorite bourbon come to life: gritty, but with loads of personality to spare. Check out fave track (and also title track) from debut record 'Down To My Soul' below, and check her out when she announces new dates soon. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets), photo by Jan La Salle
