Description

Deluxe CD with bonus tracks

"... part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse" - Star Tribune

"Davina Sowers is a one-of-a-kind performer whose singing has a sassiness bearing some comparison to that of heart-thumping blues queens Ma Rainey and Ida Cox." - Downbeat

'Sugar Drops' is the first album on Red House Records from Davina and the Vagabonds and marks the first time singer/songwriter/pianist Davina Sowers entered a proper studio to record an album. The Minneapolis-based artist holed up in Nashville's Compass Sound Studio with producer (and Compass Records co-founder) Garry West, along with her trumpeter, string arranger and husband, Zack Lozier, and a rotating cast of powerhouse players including Todd Phillips (David Grisman, Robbie Fulks) on bass, Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin, John Hiatt, Tom Jones) on guitar and Reese Wynans (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa) on Hammond B3. 'Sugar Drops' is distillation of bluesy barroom baritone and bravado, graveyard jazz grooves, and noir-ish confessional lyricism backed by boisterous piano, guitar, and strings. Eclectic, engaging and instilled with a deep respect and knowledge for the Great American Songbook, 'Sugar Drops' is the actualization of longstanding intent for Davina. "It represents about 100 years of Americana; I did exactly what I wanted to do," she says. Davina and the band are constantly on the road, touring throughout the world they've earned feverish acclaim from the Chicago Tribune, NPR, and more in addition to performing on BBC's international favorite late-night program Laterwith Jools Holland and appearing on PBS's Bluegrass Underground.
