The journey began for Davy Knowles growing up in the Isle of Man, learning to play guitar from listening to the likes of Gallagher, Clapton, Knopfler, Green and Mayall in his father’s record collection, and honing his skills playing the local music circuit. Knowles’s professional career started with a bang – arriving in America age 19 with his band Back Door Slam, an acclaimed debut album, and rave reviews at SXSW.
“MY FAVORITE MODERN BLUESMAN” – JOE SATRIANI
“Davy already has a recognizable style. He’s definitely the gunslinger guitarist of the 21st century,’’ – Peter Frampton
“Davy Knowles has immersed himself in the styles of many great players, emerging with his own brand, and playing with a smile on his face. ” – Bernie Marsden
“#6 Davy Knowles. Knowles plays the blues with the sincerity of someone twice his age” – Daniel Eriksson, Gibson Top 10 Modern Blues Guitarists.
