Dove and Boweevil! Old enough to be bitter and young enough to be sweet (well, perhaps). Their infectious camaraderie lights up any stage with music that entwines through the magical, twisted roots of the blues. Rip-roaring guitar and soaring vocals where genres mingle from soul to gospel, funk and voodoo inspired songs.
Norfolk based Mark Howes and Lauren Dove met whilst performing with a 12 piece funk band. The pair began writing together in 2007 taking influences from Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton and Dr. John to name a few. They have performed in the US and Europe impressing audiences with their refreshingly eclectic sound.
Starting life as a duo Dove and Boweevil became electrified on 2012! Having recorded their debut band ep The Barn Sessions, the band have been busy writing their next band album and have HIT their pledge target. In 2014 both Dove and Bo were nominated for best lead guitarist and vocalist in the BRITISH BLUES AWARDS as well as voted as 'ones to watch' by the Blues Matters writer's poll.
Expect a spell-binding blend of original swampy roots, blues, soul and gospel in the distinctive Dove and Boweevil style.
