Throughout his musical journey, Knowles has kept ‘the blues’ close to his heart – “I love the guitar as an instrument, it’s so versatile and endlessly challenging. Blues is the music I first fell in love with; I have always connected deeply with it.”
Born and raised on the Isle Of Man on a healthy diet of British blues-rock, both American and British folk music, and anything else he could get his hands on, guitarist and singer Davy Knowles has an eclectic take on blues-rock.
Between his original band ‘Back Door Slam’ and solo projects, Davy has released 4 full-length studio albums (with 3 of them hitting the top 5 of the Billboard Blues Charts), 2 EP’s, 2 live albums, a folk music film documentary ‘Island Bound’, and an ever-growing catalogue of live ‘Official Bootlegs’.
