Over the past several years, Davina And The Vagabonds, have been building an audience around the globe. Their shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Singer/pianist Davina Sowers' presence is indelible, while her voice defies simple categorization. Evoking comparisons as diverse as Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, she is simply a true original, presenting a personal vision that celebrates a century of American music.
In 2011, Davina And The Vagabonds released her first full length, all original album Black Cloud. It was named one of the ten best releases of the year by their hometown daily the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, and awarded 4 ½ stars from Downbeat Magazine. Their 2014 release, Sunshine, hit number 13 in the Billboard Blues Chart, which led to a performance on the famed BBC show, Later with Jools Holland. This past summer the band released the live set Nicollet and Tenth. In 2017, Davina and The Vagabonds will present their Red House Records debut studio album.
