Her live performances are known for their powerful and energetic delivery while taking an old-school approach, as well as adding contemporary elements.
As an in-demand vocalist, she has performed with or opened for other major artists including Led Zeppelin, B.B. King, Willie Dixon and many more. In November 2019 Dalannah reaffirmed her status as the ‘Matriarch’ of the Vancouver Blues scene with the release of her newest recording titled “Looking Back”. This CD is a landmark project supported by Creative BC and Amplify BC featuring an impressive cast of esteemed west coast blues performers and sidemen.
“She has a truly spectacular set of pipes and a most commanding stage presence. Bowen, has one of those voices that lays claim to part of your soul the first time you hear it and never lets go. It’s that voice. Smoky. Earthy. Soulful. Powerful. But it’s not just the voice. It’s what she does with it. So much emotion. So much control.” (Canadian Musician Magazine)
