WESTSIDE //

VON Vargas is a music artist, producer, songwriter, visual artist and an advocate for justice from Baltimore, Md. His music speaks to and for those who’ve been overlooked, outcasts, and impoverished. He’s passionate about creating music that highlights solutions to social ills that plague our communities. Born and raised on the Westside of Baltimore City his knowledge of the street mentality coupled with his profound ability to convey it’s pits and falls makes him essential in today’s music industry. He continues to leave motivational impressions on the hearts and minds of people across the globe. With his music, Von Vargas will continue to raise a standard.

As an underground innovator of the music, arts and entertainment industry, Von Vargas (a.k.a. Von Smith) has aimed his focus since day one. Von was formerly a promoter of fashion shows, after parties and a local record spinner (DJ) in most of the so-called hottest clubs in Baltimore, MD. With all of the experience he has gained from his journey in music, Vons’ direction began to change when he received a mandate to make music that would make a difference in the industry and society.
