Davina Sowers

Davina & The Vagabonds

Davina Sowers hit the Midwest scene in February 2005 and she hasn't looked back since. It didn't take her long after moving to Minnesota from Key West, FL to start making a name for herself. With great vocals and piano, she commands attention on stage and leaves everyone smiling. Davina has been performing since the age of 5, with the support of an extremely musical family. Sowers, a classically-trained pianist, has years of experience in piano performance.

Two things remain consistent in all her shows: her throaty, but cushiony voice, which has a tonal quality familiar to Bonnie Raitt, Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone.  Her band packs a rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou thick standup bass.

Davina and The Vagabonds have shared the stage with Little Feat, Buddy Guy, Elvin Bishop, The Blues Brothers, Joe Bonamassa, Aaron Neville, Ruthie Foster, Pinetop Perkins, Gary Moore, The Mannish Boys, Robert Cray, Los Lonely Boys and many others.
