Produced by Peter Frampton and mixed by Bob Clearmountain, Coming Up For Air, a smorgasbord of rockers and acoustic ballads, includes Davy Knowles and Peter's dueling guitar solos on George Harrison's anthem, "Hear Me Lord," and an extraordinary bonus track duet with Jonatha Brooke of her "Taste of Danger."
The album is built around nine Davy originals (two co-written with Peter Frampton). Highlights include rockers "Tear Down the Walls" and "Riverbed" and the soulful "You Can't Take This Back."

Davy KnowlesDavy 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.
