Toward the end of our recent phone interview, I ask Davina Sowers – the lead vocalist, pianist, and bandleader for her five-person outfit Davina & the Vagabonds – what her plans for the future are, say, five or 10 years down the road.
She answers with her own question: “You mean, aside from world domination?”
I’m fairly certain she’s kidding. But considering Sowers’ rise to professional and popular acclaim over the past eight years, there’s plenty of evidence to the contrary.
A Pennsylvania native now residing in St. Paul, Minnesota, Sowers’ career in music, as she tells it, began rather inconspicuously, when the singer/songwriter was performing as a street musician in Key West, Florida. Yet since relocating north in 2005, Sowers has not-so-slowly and surely emerged as one of Minnesota’s – and the country’s – most exciting and accomplished blues artists, touring extensively with her ensemble of Vagabonds and earning much critical praise in the process.
