Davy Knowles
Davy Knowles is a British blues guitarist and singer.

Davy Knowles has staged over five hundred appearances in support of his four Billboard-charting studio albums, DVD's and live albums. The Chicago-based artist began his journey as a young man growing up on the UK's Isle of Man, and his commitment to succeed led to his emigration to America at 19 with his band Back Door Slam. His acclaimed debut album Roll Away (Blix Street Records) delivered TV appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and Good Morning America fueled by the radio hit "Come Home." His second studio release Coming Up For Air was produced by Peter Frampton, yielding radio hits "Tear Down The Walls" and "Taste of Danger." Knowles made appearances at festivals that included Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, headlines the globe, and was invited to tour with Jeff Beck, The Who, Warren Haynes / Gov't Mule, Joe Bonamassa and Peter Frampton amongst others.

Knowles is one of only a small handful of artists who’ve had their music beamed straight into space for astronauts listening on the International Space Station. A headline show at the inaugural Garden Party Festival in the Isle of Man was memorably gate-crashed by the same astronauts who had heard Davy from the ISS. In 2011, Knowles wrote, recorded and released "Reach Higher" as official anthem for the Youth Commonwealth Games, and in 2014, as ambassador for the Isle of Man's Year of Culture he took part in several key events – making an appearance at the International Celtic Festival in Lorient, France.

His 2016 studio album, Three Miles From Avalon, entered the Billboard Blues chart at #5., sharing the top ten the week of release with Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Keb Mo’ and others. In early 2017 he launched his Official Bootleg series, a collection of never-before-heard live recordings released in volumes each month and only available for download via DavyKnowles.com. More recently, Knowles released a new EP titled 1932, presenting a collection of songs performed exclusively on his cherished 1932 National Guitar which he purchased during his first tour of the U.S. He shares, “I've always found my old National guitar to be such an inspiring instrument. It's always given that 'instant mojo' to every track I've used it on in the past. I thought it was high time I did a project purely on this fantastic machine.”
