Watch List: Alex Vargas is on 'Solid Ground' with sold-out dates in London
27 year-old Danish singer-songwriter Alex Vargas has long been on Next2Shine's radar, stunning us with his acoustic EP 'Howl' in 2013. Moving to London aged 17, Vargas previously fronted the band Vagabond, who were described as 'guitar-based pop perfection' (The Guardian, 2009). Vagabond released their debut album 'You Don't Know the Half of it' in 2009, which entered the UK album charts at number 27, however citing that the band members had decided to move in different directions, Vagabond disbanded in 2010 and Alex Vargas – the solo artist – was born.
Alex then took the stage with Above & Beyond at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and has performed with Imagine Dragons and Skrillex. He is now based in London and released his newest EP 'Solid Ground' late last year, which showcased his alluring vocals and unmistakable talents as a songwriter. Title track 'Solid Ground' is emotionally intense and moving, and Vargas' unique sound has ultimately accumulated a die-hard fan base - his recently confirmed dates in London all sold out within hours.
