Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam So sad to hear about Gregg Allman.

I remember hearing Live At The Filmore East as a kid and not just being blown away by the guitar playing on that record, but also by the songs, the arrangements, and that voice.  I couldn't, and still can't, get enough of it. 

One of the finest purveyors of soul, blues, rock, and just straight up beautiful, cuts-down-to-your-soul music has left us. I'm forever thankful for the gifts you've given us Gregg.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam Happy Saturday everyone! 

I'm enjoying a bit of downtime here on the Isle Of Man.  In the meantime - check out this video of 'Come Home' , filmed by our friend Natasha during our show at Isle of Man Cyclefest a week or so ago :)

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam In the song 'roll away' I sing: "I've taken walks by the rolling sea, where the cliffs drop down to the big blue deep".  This is that walk, these are those cliffs. Sat on a bench grandad and I used to stroll to, overlooking Perwick bay,  a few minutes walk from the house I grew up in. I miss this place beyond words.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam Great to be putting my feet up here on the Isle Of Man for a little bit. It's been a fab 2017 so far, but incredibly hectic! Lots more good stuff to come, and not sure I've ever had as much fun onstage as I have this year, but also thankful for a little time to gather myself and relax in my homeland.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam This is my happy place. Just down the road, walking distance, from the house I grew up in. The Calf Sound on the Isle Of Man. It's the first place I come to when I get back home.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam I think this face shows the joy I felt tonight playing back on the Isle Of Man at Isle of Man Cyclefest . 

Bowled over.  I've traveled all over the world.  Nowhere feels like home x x

Big thanks to my friend Gary at Vannin Photos for the shot.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam Just so humbling to see so many faces come out to see us in London last night. I had an absolute blast playing for you, and am pretty frustrated I wasn't allowed to play longer.  Sometimes silly red tape gets in the way.  We will be back, and it certainly won't be 8 years before we are. 

Lovely shot from Haluk Gurer, taken at the Flowerpot in Derby!
