Muze PNote After the critical and commercial triumph of 2007's ROLL AWAY, Isle Of Man blues-rock guitarist and singer Davy Knowles and his Back Door Slam returned in 2009 with the Peter Frampton-produced COMING UP FOR AIR. The Frampton connection is especially important since Knowles is stressing the rock side of his musical equation this time out, complete with AOR-worthy old-school songcraft such as the title track and "Tearing Down The Walls." No matter what the genre however, Knowles is without doubt a greatly gifted player; he takes the most smartly constructed solos with a rich, fat tone, very reminiscent of James Gang-era Joe Walsh. And even though bassist Adam Jones and drummer Ross Doyle have pursued a different musical path since this recording, right here these boys are a tight, rocking power trio who show more than a little substance.

Davy Knowles

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.'"Hailing from the Isle of Man, the tiny kingdom in the middle of the Irish Sea, might have posed a challenge to that childhood epiphany for a lesser talent.

He played in bands throughout his school years - usually as the "kid" among older players - and, ultimately, formed Back Door Slam with his school mates. The band's debut recording Roll Away, which featured Adam Jones on bass and Ross Doyle on drums, was released by Blix Street Records in June, 2007. Knowles wrote all but one of the tracks on the record, which became a Top 5 staple on Billboard's Blues chart.

Such acclaim continued as the band played clubs, concerts and festivals and shared billings with George Thorogood, Buddy Guy, Kid Rock & Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Who and the legendary jam band Gov't Mule.

After parting company with his bandmates Jones and Doyle, Knowles began to record the follow up to Roll Away.
