Kate Vargas

Today, the New York City-based, New Mexico native shares her album Rumpumpo with the world. Kate Vargas, the “junkyard folk” artist, has put aside the party for meditation, yoga, clean eating, and a fresh perspective on life as she hones in on her music.

Kate Vargas shares “Rumpumpo,” the first song to be released from her forthcoming album Rumpumpo, due out on Friday, July 16 via Bandaloop Records.  The world got their first listen to the new song earlier this week on Apple Music’s Record Bin Radio.

The New Mexico native, and now New York-based artist wrote “Rumpumpo” during lockdown at Kid Rock’s old house in Malibu, and on Jackson Browne’s guitar.

New York-based outlaw Americana artist, Kate Vargas, announces the release of her new music video, “Second Skin,” premiering via Elmore Magazine. True to her Southwestern roots, Vargas’s music “weaves through a riotous brew of folk, blues and rock, delivered by an undeniably unique voice… It's like the sound of a favorite bourbon come to life: gritty, but with loads of personality to spare."
