About Davy Knowles
Every so often a truly explosive, blues-steeped star comes slamming down the pike. Davy Knowles, a 22-year old British guitar phenomenon with an encyclopedic grasp of blues-rock has been compared to Jimi, Eric & Rory, & his latest album was produced by, and features Peter Frampton. PK’s (Bass) Phreejazz/Phunk/Aphrobeat Improvising has given a more expressive funky side to Davy’s blues-rock. His thumpin’ bass grooves are locked in with Steven Barci’s (Drums) beats, pushing the band to previously unexplored limits every show.
