Welcome to Blues Meets Girl

About Us / Short Bio

Blues Meets Girl (BMG) is the powerful duo of British Blues veteran Mr. Downchild and American singer/song writer Kasimira Vogel. The collaboration is smokin’ sexy and laced with infectious energy. Their music is primarily blues or blues-influenced, but you will also hear threads of roots rock, folk and jazz.

The London born Mr. Downchild is an international blues artist whose authentic vocals, harmonica and guitar were recognized by Grammy winning Blues Hall of Famer Robert Lockwood Jr.  The legendary Lockwood served as his mentor and appeared on the first Mr. Downchild album. Mr. D has toured 25 states and produced 6 CDs

Kasimira is a Southern born, Northern raised singer songwriter whose real skill is tapping into the soul of the lyric. Using her three plus octave range to her every advantage, she gives sincere emotion and life to each song. Prior to BMG, Ms. Vogel sang with several bands in Massachusetts and Ohio.  Kasimira has 2 CDs under her belt and has toured 7 states.

Blues Meets Girl self titled CD came out in 2019 and plans for an EP is scheduled for this Fall.  Blues Meets Girl are available as a duo or with a band for Festivals, Listening Rooms and Private Events.

  • Charles Worthington
    When I first heard her I thought it was Big Mama Thorton singing Hound Dog! I stayed to hear more. That Kasimira, man, she’s like Big Mama, Etta James and Bonnie Rait all rolled up into one, Damn! And Mr. Dowchild, the two of you together is a damn delight!
  • Sheryl and Don Crow
    Blues Meets Girl is an outstanding collaboration featuring two of the finest voices in contemporary blues. When you listen to this set, you might get the feeling that Robert Johnson cozied up to Memphis Minnie or Ma Rainey, and these songs were what they created!
  • The Rock Doctor (John Kereiff)
    Blues Meets Girl is a fusion of their influences and experiences that result in down home, smokin’ hot, sexy blues you can use... the disc has the sound and feel of a classic blues album; rough around the edges in the right ways, vivid lyrics that tell some great stories, and some pretty righteous musicianship that just feels… right!
