Davy Knowles returns to the UK for four shows in April . Britain’s most enigmatic roots guitarist since the heyday of the Yardbirds, 22-year-old Isle Of Man-born Davy Knowles returns to the UK this April with his band Back Door Slam and his brand new album ‘Coming Up For Air’, which was released in November last year by Blixstreet Records. Davy Knowles will be playing four dates across the UK taking in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London in support of ‘Coming Up For Air’. The album has received much critical acclaim in the UK over the last couple of months including articles in The Sunday Times Culture, Classic Rock and appearances on BBC Breakfast TV , BBC London and Kerrang radio. Davy’s last gig in the UK in February this year was to a packed and eager 100 Club that saw Davy perform a truly masterful and mesmerizing set. The Isle of Man native is proving that blues/rock guitar could very well be the next big thing with a style that unites young and old blues followers. The ever-expanding army of Davy Knowles fans will surely agree!

Davy Knowles returns to the UK. Britain’s most ferocious roots guitarist since the heyday of the Yardbirds, 22-year-old Isle Of Man-born Davy Knowles returns to the UK with his band Back Door Slam for a special headline gig at The 100 Club on the 9th February and a performance at the Next Big Thing festival on 11th February.
His last London show at the Borderline in October 2009 saw the venue completely packed out with relatively little advance press. For a blues artist, one would expect a mature audience, but Davy’s crowd was completely mixed, with both young girls and blues experts standing in awe of his guitar wizardry. It’s not surprising considering he has spent two years wowing audiences in every state of the US and supporting legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynrd and Chickenfoot.
His debut UK album ‘Coming Up For Air’ was released in November last year by Blixstreet Records and was met with critical acclaim at press, radio, and online. The album was produced by Grammy Award winning guitarist Peter Frampton and features the crème de la crème of musical talent on it such as Fritz Lewak (drums) and Kevin McCormick on bass (Jackson Browne’s rhythm section), respected British singer and Richard Thompson band member Christine Collister on backing vocals, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench on keyboards. The album features 11 brand new studio tracks and one cover of ‘Hear Me Lord’ by George Harrison.
