Andy Vargas has only just begun to show the world his talent for composing and singing sweet melodies, soulful lyrics, and captivating grooves with cross-cultural appeal. Currently singing with the Carlos Santana Band, Andy's style results primarily from the influence of his father, Javier Vargas, as well as Carlos Santana. Exposed to music at the early age of three, Andy began performing with his father's mariachi band in Watsonville, California by the time that he was only seven years old. Encouraged by his father?s excitement to teach him, Andy quickly saw the powers of deeper communication and expression that music holds.
During the past few months Andy has been striving to tailor his music to his own creative convictions, writing and recording original compositions in his private studio. Collaborating with friends and colleagues, Andy's music follows in the Santana tradition of combining musical ideas from multiple cultures and genres. In addition to his own music, Andy is now working with the electrifying Maria Conchita Alonzo for her upcoming album.
As for getting out of the studio and letting the world hear what he's got, Andy will be performing a number of times at the famous Conga Room in Los Angeles with fellow Santana band members, Karl Perazzo and Raul Rekow, joining him on stage.
