Please join Pearl Street Warehouse as we welcome blues sensation Davy Knowles back to our stage.

At 32 years of age, Isle of Man-born guitarist/singer/songwriter Davy Knowles can now add ‘Mascot Recording Artist’ to his long list of already impressive achievements.

Knowles first burst onto the scene in 2007 with his band ‘Back Door Slam’, garnering rave reviews, national US television appearances (Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America), extensive triple-A radio airplay, and two top 5 Billboard Blues charting albums. Since then, Knowles has independently released two more studio albums, 2014’s ‘The Outsider’ and 2016’s ‘Three Miles From Avalon’, which also hit the top 5 on the Billboard Blues chart. An EP, ‘1932’, showcasing his talents on acoustic guitar, specifically a 1932 National acoustic guitar, was released in early 2017.

An extensive tour schedule has ensured he has put in more than his ’10,000 hours’ on the road, including appearances with The Who, Jeff Beck, Gov’t Mule, Lynrd Skynrd, Kid Rock, Joe Bonamassa, Sonny Landreth, Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, and the Sammy Hagar-fronted supergroup ‘Chickenfoot’ among many others. “It’s your job to be the worst player in the room, and absorb like a sponge” says Knowles of sharing the stage with his heroes. And it’s not just his heroes he’s played for, in 2010, he became the first musician in history to play live directly to the International Space Station from Mission Control in Houston.

Despite these accomplishments, things are only looking up for Davy Knowles, having just signed to Holland-based record label, Mascot. “I am excited to join the ranks at Mascot Records, a label I’ve admired and been a fan of for a long time, I feel honored to be included in their incredible roster, and am excited to knuckle down on making some great music together in 2020.”

Announcing the release of his seventh studio album since 2011, Bobby Thompson's new self-titled release has 9 fresh tracks, including 7 originals and 2 covers. built off years of touring internationally, opening for artists like Jimmie Vaughan, Samantha Fish, Marcus King & Carolyn Wonderland, he has solidified his place as a premier blues-rock performer, as well as a strong songwriter, vocalist / bandleader. he has taken the wheel in producing this album, and he is proud of the product produced.

He recently won a Wammie award (Washington Area Music Association) for best blues album, and although there are strong overtones of the blues in his writing, he sees himself now as a singer-songwriter, with a loud amp, and a strong band. He will as easily spend an evening entertaining a small listening room with his acoustic guitars and his songs, and the next night, he will have the dance floor packed grooving to the same songs with his band.
