Background

Alexander Vargas Bay, better known as Alex Vargas, was born on February 17, 1981, in Hørsholm, Denmark. His zodiac sign is Aquarius. His father has Uruguayan ancestry and his mother is British-Danish. He has dedicated his life to music, becoming a singer, composer, and producer. Although he showed great musical talent from a very young age, his fame began when he was 17 years old when he arrived in London to sign with the Geffen Records label. From this creative alliance, the renowned pop and rock band, Vagabond, was born. Between 2008 and 2010, the band received a lot of recognition from their audience, released their debut album “You Don’t Know the Half of It,” and participated in music festivals such as Glastonbury, T in the Park, and V. By 2009, they were touring the United Kingdom.

However, on February 16, 2010, a day before Vargas’ birthday, it was announced that the band would split up amicably. However, his success would not end there. He continued to be promoted as a solo artist. His first public appearance after the split, was in 2013, as the vocalist of the famous band, Above & Beyond. He also accompanied them in the creative process of their fourth studio album, co-writing five songs, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart in the United States. In 2014, Vargas had the opportunity to sign with the Copenhagen Records label and work on an E.P. and album. His first releases with the label were in 2015, with the singles ‘Till Forever Runs Out’ and ‘Solid Ground.’ The latter went viral and put his name on the radar of talented artists. On January 22, 2016, he finally released his E.P. “Giving Up The Ghost,” which reached number one on the iTunes album charts. Vargas’s love life has been kept completely private.
