Kate Vargas and the Reckless Daughters with Danielle Steward
November 17, 2019 @ 3:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey welcomes Kate Vargas and the Reckless Daughters to their first show at the 1867 Sanctuary Arts and Culture Center. Local indie folk singer Danielle Steward will open the show.
A reformed wild child, in recent years Kate Vargas (www.katevargas.com) has traded the party for meditation, yoga, clean eating and a renewed focus on what she values most—her music. The New Mexico-raised, NYC-based artist is building ever more mindfully on her sound, and the music press is taking notice, Vargas receiving praise from a variety of respected outlets including Billboard, NPR, Noisey, and the Huffington Post, the latter assessing, “There is an unlimited amount of potential in this superstar on the rise.”
Vargas has packed houses from Ireland’s Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival to The Troubadour in London, The Mansion on O Street in Washington D.C. to New York’s Bowery Electric. Her most recent album, For The Wolfish & Wandering), features her singular folk-style storytelling. The songs are grounded in a darkly melodic, reverb-washed sonic palette of dreampop, dusty folk and junkyard blues, all carried by Vargas’ rough-hewn vocals and guitar playing. In equal measure, she channels a surprising array of artists, from Tom Waits and 16 Horsepower to Lana Del Rey and K. Flay.
The Reckless Daughters are Kate’s sister Lizzy Vargas and her good friend Lena Kaminsky.
Danielle Steward is a New Jersey based singer/songwriter who plays the guitar, banjo, and piano. She grew up in a musical family and began playing the guitar at age 13. Since then, she’s been writing songs and actively performing throughout the NYC / Philly / NJ area and beyond. Over the years she has developed an acoustic folksy style with an emotive voice and engaging tales. Her albums include “Off the Tracks” (2010), “Traveling On” (2012), and “Shipwrecked” (2014).
