Whether belting out Broadway and big band ballads or softly seducing her listeners with sultry standards, she leaves everything on the stage, always delivering memorable musical moments that keep people coming back for more.

With a BA focus on classical theater and dance from the University of Alabama, Bowman began her professional career in entertainment in 1999 in New York City, performing internationally in TV, film, theater, and cabaret shows. Stage credits include Chicago, Cabaret, 42nd Street, The Little Mermaid, Hairspray, Oliver (first national tour), Evita, Sweeney Todd, and A Streetcar Named Desire. Television and film credits include DC’s Stargirl, Creepshow, Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, Ugly Betty (season four), Being Mary Jane, The Haves and the Have Nots, It’s Complicated, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and several national commercials.

Her newest endeavors as a songwriter brought much anticipation for her recent jazz album, Fast Heart, which made the 62nd Grammy ballot in three categories, including Best Jazz Vocal Album and Best New Artist.
