nt of shady dealing and violence. Storytelling has always been a vital ingredient in Knowles’ work: “Songs with characters and stories have always grabbed me, and I wanted to write one in the blues and gospel vein, it’s a story of blackmail, gambling and regret, though certainly not an autobiographical one!”

Yet it’s the title track, Three Miles From Avalon, which brings to the fore very personal aspects to a tale. “The song is really all about being slightly further away than where you want to be, and the frustration that comes with that. Avalon is this Arthurian legend, the Island that could never be found. It became my metaphor for things just out of my grasp.”

The song also reveals the musical influences close to Davy’s heart, showcasing his love of blues and classic rock with affection

The album closes on a hat tip to one of the all-time greats, Willie Dixon, with a re-working of his blues classic What In The World. Performed with a live, ‘after hours’ feel, the track showcases Knowles’ confident and distinctive guitar playing, but also a powerful solo on the Hammond B3 by Andrew Toombs – demonstrating that Knowles and his tight-knit band all possess not only stunning technical ability, but soul too.
