Davy Knowles

Davy went to Castle Rushen High School and is a singer/songwriter and blues guitarist currently working in America and forging a highly successful music career. He played in local band Back Door Slam until deciding to follow a solo career.

His first solo album 'Coming up For Air' reached number two on the Billboard Blues Albums Charts on two separate occasions in 2009. Davy wrote and performed the anthem for the Isle of Man Commonwealth Youth Games in 2011 'Reach Higher' which was commissioned by the Arts Council. Davy still manages to come home on a regular basis and plays at venues across the Island.

I am thrilled and honoured to be asked to be amongst fine company as a Cultural Ambassador for the 'Island Of Culture'. I'm looking forward to helping promote our wonderful culture and heritage and at the same time diving in and deepening my own knowledge and understanding of the music of the Isle of Man.
