Dani Vargas was born and raised in Santiago, Chile by artistic and musical parents.  Influenced and inspired by the art and music present at home, Dani began playing the guitar at the age of 16. Two years later, he became one of the founder members of the Power Metal band 'Magistral' . Their first single 'Awake' 1998, gave the band national recognition and radio play. Two years after the band decided to move to the U.S. to further pursue their musical endeavors. 

After relocating to Houston, TX, while teaching as well as refining his tone and technique, Dani recorded and toured with ‘Magistral‘ until 2008.

In 2009 Dani began to explore acoustic finger style music  that would later result into the acoustic project ‘Aerial Visions‘ along guitarist Travis Stephenson. 

In 2011 he embarked upon a career with the Rock instrumental trio ‘The Dani Vargas Group‘ along longtime friend drummer Moises Zapata (Magistral ) and bassist virtuoso Anthony Sapp. The project released two EP’s, followed by the full length album ‘Sound On Canvas’ in 2013.


After relocating to Los Angeles, CA in 2014, Dani continued working and touring as a fingerstyle guitarist with the project 'Aerial Visions' releasing the album 'City Life' in 2016, followed by  the Ep 'Writings in the Sky' in 2017. That same year Dani has to end the project, and continues as a solo Fingerstyle guitarist releasing the album 'Love' in January 2018.

With the desire to expand creatively he began singing and writing riff inspired rock songs that led to form the band 'Thou Shall Doubt‘ in the summer of 2019 along bassist Jenna Colombet and drummer Ted Kelliher . That same year, Dani, violinist Jenna Colombet and vocalist Paige Herschell, form the Swing Jazz Trio 'San Lyon'.
