Watch my interview with Davina:

This week's edition of Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays features one of the most respected women on the blues scene, Davina Sowers (pictured).

Here's some info on the singer/pianist:
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. She and her band made a big splash at Duluth's Bayfront Blues Festival in 2006 to 2008, having the highest sales in CDs all three years. She has been called the "hardest working blues woman in frigid Minnesota.” “Two things remain consistent in all her shows: her throaty, but cushion-y 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 bay-outhick stand-up bass." (Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune) Davina has already shared the stage with Little Feat, Buddy Guy, Elvin Bishop ... at venues such as House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ and the Bayfront Blues Festival in Duluth, MN.
