  • Davina & the Vagabonds

    Davina & the Vagabonds

    DAVINA & THE VAGABONDS have created a stir on the national music scene with their high-­‐energy live shows, level A musicianship, sharp-­‐dressed professionalism, and Sowers’ commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time, from Vancouver to Miami and across Europe. In 2011 Davina released her first full length, all original album Black Cloud . It was named one of the 10 best releases of the year by the Minneapolis Star & Tribune and awarded 4 1⁄2 stars from Downbeat Magazine. Their next release in 2014, Sunshine, hit number 13 in the Billboard Blues Chart and led them to be a musicial feature on the hit BBC show, Later with Jools Holland.

    DATV’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Davina’s voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice: Sowers is a true original.

    Bringing you 100 years of American music and Davina’s originals, which lend themselves to the American Songbook, the band brings edgy nostalgia to older generations and fresh new music to younger ears. This rollicking quintet is held together by Sowers’ keyboard playing, with acoustic bass, drums, and a spicy trumpet and trombone horn section. The group’s focused, clean sound and emphasis on acoustic instruments is novel to both blues and jazz worlds, and sets the show closer to New Orleans than to Chicago. This has set the Vagabonds apart at festivals in Thunder Bay, Ontario; Sighisoara, Romania; Sierre, Switzerland; Kemi, Finland; the 2012 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and 2013 Monterey Jazz Festival ( in 2014 was asked back to play their main stage in 2014, Vache de Blues in France, and North Sea Jazz Festival. Catch this one-­‐of-­‐a-­‐kind live show while they are in town!

  • Myra Flynn

    Myra Flynn

    Singer/songwriter Myra Flynn spends her career embracing dichotomy. Half Irish and half African American, her original indie/soul songs blend soulful vocals with a lyrical delivery that doesn't let one get too comfortable. As the New England Deli Magazine puts it, "Her vocal influences have as much in common with Ani Difranco and Shawn Colvin as they do with Rihanna and Jill Scott."

  • KELLSA

    KELLSA

    The genre-bending Brazilian ska-reggae, pop rock world artist, “Kellsa” was born into a musically gifted family and joined her first band, with a tenacious drive, at the young age of fourteen. Singing and songwriting has since taken her across the world, with musical collaborations and major music festivals. Her passion, motivation and pursuit of becoming a pop rock, reggae sensation is at the forefront of her dreams and not far from her soon-to-be reality.
    In 2007, Kellsa forwarded her some tracks to some contacts in Jamaica and was soon invited to travel to Kingston, with a handful of locally renowned reggae producers, to work on her first professional EP. Once there, she was soon invited to participate in the Eagle Eye Riddim Medley, featuring prominent artists, Elephant Man and Capleton, which was followed by her first solo music video for her single, "If You Wanna." The video debuted at # 1 in Kingston on RETV; a popular television station, holding its position for three consecutive weeks. Her Latina background had been well received by the Jamaican reggae and reggae dancehall scene.
    Late in 2008, Kellsa felt it was best to create a more international fan base and soon moved to London, U.K. to work on her first solo album “Fortaleza;” which was named after her birth city. She toured throughout the U.K. and beyond, performing at prominent live venues throughout London and Barcelona, as well as Sweden. After the 2010 solo album release in Brazil, Donaleda; one of the largest, most renowned reggae bands from Northeast Brazil asked Kellsa to join them as their lead vocalist. Their most notable performance was in 2014, for a crowd of more than 30,000 festival fans at the FIFA Fan Fest.
    The Brazilian artist had a broader aspiration and decided to take a leap of faith, making a permanent move to Los Angeles, California to further pursue her passion in the states. Soon after arriving, she decided to dive into the local scene and joined The Bredren; a local Reggae Rock band out of Orange County for a short time. The band performed throughout Southern California and opened for Starpool at the House of Blues in Anaheim.
    In late 2015, Kellsa realized it was time to take her career to new heights as a solo artist and began working with Lion Riddim, to produce her “Fortaleza” EP named after her birth city in Brazil. In February 2016, she released a single off of the album, “Shots of Tequila.” The EP is a compilation of genre-blurring sounds of reggae, pop, ska, rock and other worldly influences, which give “Kellsa” her signature sound and standout unique flair. Kellsa is currently touring around SoCal promoting the EP. She has performed at some amazing summer festivals such as Dry Diggins and Yetti Fest.
    Kellsa’s voice has been compared to a Gwen Stefani-type of pop-rock sound, dabbled with her signature ska-reggae flair. Her sharp, smooth vocals, diverse range and catchy lyrics, coupled with her vintage good looks and impressive stage deliverance, is sure to catch the attention of fans and industry folks alike. After nearly a decade in Brazil, Jamaica and the U.K., the thirty-two year old vocalist is proving to become the next standout artist here in the states.
