Davina and the Vagabonds Enchant With The Dreamy Wonder Of 'Sugar Moon'
When Davina Sowers and her band of Vagabonds are in full flow, something enchanting happens. As Davina and the Vagabonds, the five-piece conjure such an intoxicating blend of Americana, blues, jazz and roots music that the hypnotizing musical spell they cast proves to be utterly inescapable in its alluringly nostalgic fascination. From raucous ragtime grooves, to a jazzy swing and the more patient intimacy of folk-hued confessions, the intricate interplay of piano, drums, trombone, trumpet and upright bass captivates with its wistfully bewitching authenticity. Adding an extra measure of potency to the bands appeal, Sowers voice acts a dazzling focal point all its own. A wondrous blend of lullaby-like tenderness, giddy intimacy and raspy emotion, her voice will just as easily draw you in with a murmured whisper as it will set your adrenaline surging with soulfully soaring abandon; inimitably expressive and radiantly emotive, hers truly is a voice for the ages.
Here following up the release of their recent live album, 'Nicollet And Tenth', with a stop at the studio of 89.3 The Current, they showcase the enthralling draw of their distinctive talent with the dreamy wonder of 'Sugar Moon'.
