DeLaVina is the folk-soul-country-blues project of Miguel Bowser. Miguel is a Taurus who behaves like an Aries. It is said that he suffers from Transzodiac Disorder. Psychiatrists around the globe are scrambling for a cure.
His first guitar was destroyed by his younger sister in a similar fashion to that of Hendrix when he destroyed his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. The destruction of the guitar came as a consequence for having destroyed his little sister’s bicycle. As the eldest of the two, he takes full responsibility for the conflict. He continues to look for the stories and melodies floating about in the city, the country and everywhere in between.
