Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam I've always loved playing acoustic, and have included a few acoustic moments in my albums over the years.  What's your favourite acoustic song of mine, and would you like to hear more in the future?

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam It's been amazing being back on the Island,  although no matter how long I get to spend here, I never get to spend as much time with friends and family as I'd like.  

It's always an honour to play for my home village, we had an amazing 3 nights in Port St Mary Town Hall.  I'm off to the Lake District in the UK today to start some very special rehearsals! 

Thanks to Mike Wade from IOM newspapers for the write up below, and Gary Weightman from Vannin Photos for the fab shots!

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam 2017... you've been a beautiful year. I have so much to be happy and thankful for - both musically and in my personal life. 

I am a fortunate man. I owe a lot of that to many of you on here for supporting me - buying tickets, albums, EP's or T-shirts. Just saying 'Thank You' after a show.  The latter makes my heart very happy indeed. 

I have a good feeling about 2018... 

To everyone reading this.  I wish you nothing but the very best.  Be kind to one another, love one another and make each moment of the new year count. 

With much love and gratitude,
Davy

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam A good up close and personal shot by Lenny Conroy last night.  Tonight is the final show of our sold out 3 night run in my hometown of Port St Mary.  I can't describe the feeling of coming home to play for you all, or the feeling you have  given by supporting me - not only for these town hall shows in recent history - but for many of you, since I was a kid playing in the pubs on the island. Without that, I wouldn't be as fortunate as I am to be playing music for a career all over the world.  With this being said - there are some tremendous young musicians on the Isle Of Man right now who deserve that same overwhelming support just as much, if not more, than I. Mae Challis (who's been opening these shows this year), Fraser and Callum Rowe, Hamish Faragher immediately come to mind - although there are many more.  Support live music. More than that though. Support future live music. Our lives, and our children's lives will be richer for it.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam Wise words from a hero.
I'm having an incredible time really studying this music (that I've loved all my guitar-playing life) in preparation for rehearsals with Gerry and Ted next month, and our tour in April.

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam I am INCREDIBLY excited to announce I will be touring the USA in April 2018 with Band Of Friends - Rory Gallagher's longtime rhythm section - Gerry McAvoy (Bass) and Ted McKenna (Drums),  in celebration of the life and music of Rory Gallagher. 

Needless to say, playing in a band with two heroes of mine, who with Rory,  helped shape so much of my own music, is an honor beyond description. Check the April dates on my website and come see us! Link below:

Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam Well, despite some seriously frustrating sound problems at the start of the show, we had an incredible time closing out our 2017 USA tour in Minneapolis last night!  Thanks to everyone for making this my best year yet.  To everyone who bought a ticket, who stopped by the merch booth to say hi and pick up a shirt or CD - in this mad climate of a music industry, YOU are the ones who give me the opportunity to keep rolling, to keep writing, recording and performing.  For that, I am beyond grateful. I am looking forward to what 2018 will hold.  Photo by my friends Doug and Lisa.  Thanks all!
