To be living the dream in NYC... 

Sometimes when I get caught up in my routine, I have to remind myself that my life was once the fantasy of a little flute player in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Today I get to live and perform in NYC with some of the greatest musicians around, in venues with histories so rich, they'd give Miss Trunchbull's chocolate cake a run for its money.

Thank you to Matt Clohesy, Granville Mullings Jr., and Gabriel Gordon.  Thank you to Pianos for having us.

Coming soon to Pandora and NOW on New Driven Radio 

The songs "Down To My Soul" and "Throw The Devil Back" have been accepted into Pandora.  They are currently running it through The Music Genome to match them up to similar tunes and artists.  Soon you can be listening to the "Kate Vargas station" while getting ready to start your day or end your day or anywhere in between!

You will also be able to hear one of those two tunes on New Driven Radio's Revolution, a 2 hour syndicated independent rock show that changes weekly.  Tune in this week (3/24-3/30) to hear me and tons of other awesome independent artists.  The show will be playing on all kinds of great radio stations around the world.
