Dalannah & 2014

"Thank you" for checking out my site.

We had a wonderful 2013 and really looking forward to what 2014 will bring.

Our performances of 2013 allowed us to work with some incredible musicians and play at some incredible events.

I want to take the time to thank the many people who supported me, hugged me, loved me volunteered for my community projects or helped in any way as I continue my journey with my music and my community service.

I continue to explore opportunities to create new programs/opportunities for those who live in poverty and the related issues that come in that climate.

I will be recording a new cd in 2014 and have completed writing all of the songs so I am getting excited about that. I also will be working with a new group this year and will be sharing more about that in the coming months.

One of my bands, EVM which performs the music of legendary Van Morrison.....our way....has just finalized our cd and I can share with you that when I heard it......I cried. I am so grateful to Simon Kendall, Paul Bergman and Karen Graves for sharing in this project. We all love Van's work and we all felt that we could do something different with the songs..I will let you know when we have social media availability for the new cd called "'Old Old Woodstock"

DALANNAH'S NEW FREE DOWNLOAD OF MEAN MAN

Hi to all and I hope this note finds you well and that you are enjoying your weekend.

I have just completed writing all the songs for my new cd and will start work in January. with that in mind, I thought it would be great to offer another song from the last cd "Them Menz" which is...I can't believe it...still getting reviews. MEAN MAN is a fun song about a serious topic.relationships with men and....nothing personal gentlemen but I have had challenges when It comes to relationships. I can laugh now but at the time it was something else.

I hope you enjoy the song and so glad that I have the music to offer...I also invite you to become a fan ...take care of yourselves....in peace...Dalannah Gail Bowen

I am preparing for January/February recording sessions and thought that now is the time to share some of the tunes that we had so much fun with. I hope you enjoy these musical offerings and "thank you" for being in my world....smiles

DALANNAH'S UPDATE FOR OCT 26

Hi to all and I hope this note finds you well.

Well, it has been an extremely busy time for me and I am enjoying every minute of it. I had some wonderful performances in September and am currently, "dancing as fast as I can" working my way through the In The Heart Of The City Festival with big band (19 piece band), small band and duo work....so much fun.

Also, I have finished writing my material for new cd so will start working on that in January.

Just a reminder that I am at the Upper Deck tonight with my friend and guitar great Jason Buie...would love to see my Victoria friends out to say "hi"
