Already a favorite for many Charlotte Blues Society members and Blues/Rock fans, Davy Knowles has played numerous gigs in Charlotte throughout the last several years, building a steady and loyal fan base.
Charlotte Blues Society is honored to partner with MaxxMusic to bring Davy to Charlotte for our always fantastic "Blues Christmas Bash Extravaganza"
On his aptly-titled Mascot Label Group’ debut, What Happens Next, roots singer-songwriter and guitarist Davy Knowles boldly steps forward with timeless and cohesive songwriting; sleek modern production; and a lyrical, play-for-the-song guitar approach informed from soul, folk, rock, and blues. The 12-song album is just as influenced by The Black Keys, Fantastic Negrito, Gary Clark Jr., as it is Muddy Waters, Junior Kimbrough, and R.L. Burnside. It is a cohesive body of work rather than a collection of disparate songs.
“I’ve always loved songs. When it came time to record this album, it was all about supporting the songs as opposed to ‘how quickly I can get to the guitar solo’,” the Isle of Man-born, Chicago, Illinois-based artist says laughing. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that—I’ve been there, done that!” He continues: “I’m not a purist, and the way for roots music to stay relevant is to adapt and progress. The ‘field hollers’ Alan Lomax recorded are worlds apart from Muddy Waters’ music, but they come from the same place.”
Knowles has earned plum endorsements from D’Addario strings, PRS guitars, Bludotone amps, and Celestion speakers. In 2010, he became the first musician in history to play live directly to the International Space Station from Mission Control in Houston. In addition, he’s held his own sharing the stage with such heavyweight artists as The Who, Jeff Beck, Gov’t Mule, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Joe Bonamassa, Sonny Landreth, Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, and the Sammy Hagar-fronted supergroup “Chickenfoot,” among many others.
On What Happens Next, Knowles’s poetic songwriting, and his soulfully emotive singing steal the show. The 12-song body of work offers forth a peaks-and-valleys album experience winding through brawny riffs, jazzy blues balladry, and vintage soul before concluding with one of Knowles’s most personal songs released to date. Throughout it all, his guitar playing is brilliantly understated, his rhythm work is deft and dynamic—beefy on the rockers, and subtly supportive on the slower tunes—and his leads are economical but feature juicy blues bends and thick as molasses lead guitar tones.

Jack Broadbent made his debut in Charlotte at the Charlotte Blues Society's November 7th Blues Sunday at Neighborhood Theatre to a very favorable response.Not only was Jack a crowd pleaser, he signed our CBS Raffle guitar,
took pics with our own Betsy Norton-Stowe,
and scored a CBS T-shirt, which (we must admit) suits him very well
We Think it looks pretty great on Jack!

If you love the blues, this is an opportunity for you to put that love to good use. As per our bylaws, we need to replace departing officers and volunteers who are no longer able to serve. We are up to the task and are looking for a few people with energy and vision.
On your next trip to Memphis, stop by the Blues Foundation Blues Museum.
On the brick walkway heading to the entry, you will see the brick you helped us buy to commemorate our beloved Robin Rogers.
Keep the Blues Alive.
