Vargas brings versatility that can be heard in his musical creations often allowing for an eclectic mix of genres and styles allowing him to relate to people of all cultures and backgrounds.
Vargas being his grandmother’s maiden name serves as a symbol of gender equality and for him a reminder of the less fortunate struggling classes of the world.

Vargas is closely associated with the Parkdale Tenants Association, where he has put on events and has performed in the streets in protest of local slumlords gaining the attention of CBC’s live to air radio show, Big City Small World.
