The Dove & Boweevil Band is the culmination of likeminded diverse musicians brought together by the figureheads of singer Lauren Dove and her guitarist Mark 'Boweevil' Howes.
Originating from backgrounds in Funk, Gospel, Jazz & Blues, the Dove & Boweevil Band straddles a vast array of genres and settles with the broad brush of Roots Music -
Music from the heart, head and soul owing a debt to the musical heritage of America.
The Band debuted its own sound with 2015's This Life which had international and national airplay including Paul Jone's Blues Show on Radio 2, Album of the week on the Robert Elms show on BBC Radio London as well as reaching no. 2 in the IBBA blues charts.
The band are also twice nominated for the BBA’s, and finalists for the UK Challenge 2016.
The band’s sound, and musical approach is one that refuses to be contained in just one genre, and either on record or live will expand your musical tastes whilst giving a well respected nod, gratitude and love to what has gone before it...
We have been acknowledged for Best Album 2016 and best song with Lady Lavoo in the British Blues Awards
Paul Jones played us on BBC Radio 2 and we've been down to BBC Radio London to play live on the Robert Elms Show! Future Radio's Unsigned playlist for Sept, Oct and Nov and also picked by BBC Radio Introducing too.
"This Life is a really refreshing collection of songs...the Blues being a base for them but not the beginning and end. Having the full band behind them allows Lauren and Mark to fully expand their ideas and it's an album you will keep going back to I'm sure!"
