A melting pot of Blues, American Roots, and New Orleans music.

“They dare to be different. Davina zips to near impossible heights in a divine declaration of romance” -Downbeat Magazine

“The truly timeless beauty of this remarkable album puts it on a pinnacle, unrivaled and unique, a portion of cultural caviar. Stand aside, Duffy et al, here comes homage Herculean in its faith-full Monty. And yeah, I like it.” -Nick Toczek, Rock’N’Reel Magazine (UK)

Davina Sowers hit the Minneapolis scene and it didn’t take her long to start making a name for herself. With great vocals and piano, she commands attention onstage and leaves everyone smiling.

“ Think of a meld of Bessie Smith, Etta James, Alberta Adams and Amy Winehouse, and you come close to understanding what Davina Sowers is all about…Davina is a real talent who deserves greater exposure – and I have no option but to highly recommend this band.” -Blues In Britain

Lately she has been garnering regional and even international attention, wowing crowds throughout the Midwest and stealing the show at theThunder Bay Blues Festival, the Sierre Blues Festival in Switzerland, and the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

“Davina Sowers’ classically trained right fingers shimmy down the piano keys and meet up with an insistent boogie-woogie bass. Then she reveals her other musical talent: a sassy, salty, sweet voice that’s childlike at the top, husky at the bottom.” – NPR / Marc Silver 2011 “Song of The Day” / Lipstick and Chrome

“Two things remain consistent at all her shows though: her throaty but cushiony voice, which has a sort of hard-mattress comfort to it that’s part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse; and her band’s rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou-thick standup bass.” -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
