Burnside Album Details

Davina and The Vagabonds, Black Cloud

Davina Sowers has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the hardest-working blues woman on the road today. With endless touring around the world (booked by Piedmont Talent), the band has averaged over 300 dates a year for the last five years, and have wowed crowds from the West Bank of Minneapolis to festival crowds in Romania; and Switzerland. Fuelled by Davina’s soul-drenched vocals and sparkling keyboard work, along with an in-the-pocket rhythm section and punchy horns, Black Cloud announces itself with the rollicking instrumental opening track, “Vagabond Stomp,” and doesn’t let go until the reprise outro that closes the CD. Along the way, Davina and the Vagabonds dazzle with an array of roots and blues sounds that touch on everything from classic New Orleans horn bands, to soul, jazz, blues, gospel and Dixieland. "Twin Cities singer-pianist Davina Sowers sounds like the daughter of Leon Redbone and Betty Boop, trained on piano by Randy Newman.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
