DAVY KNOWLES & BACK DOOR SLAM
Davy Knowles has known what he wanted to do with his life since the age of 11. ?I was in the car with my dad, and he put on a cassette of Dire Straits' 'Sultans of Swing,'" explains the 21-year-old guitarist, singer and songwriter. "I just fell in love with the music then and there. That track changed my life, and I realized, 'I really want to be able to do that.'"
Nick Anderman of the Village Voice wrote: "Davy Knowles, the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, is talented like very few bluesmen these days. He shreds like a young Robert Cray and wails like the love of his life was just hit by a truck."
