Davy Knowles, 22-year-old British guitar whiz, and his band Back Door Slam will be at the Riverbend Festival on Sunday.
The band has a new CD Coming Up For Air that is out June 16.
Produced by Peter Frampton, the 11-song set is comprised of nine Knowles compositions, a compelling cover of George Harrison’s “Hear Me Lord” and bonus track “Taste of Danger” - a soulful and dynamic duet with singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke.
The album’s lead single “Tear Down the Walls” was recently selected by USA Today (5/26/09) as their “Pick Of The Week.”
After completing a three-week tour with Jeff Beck and a few dates with new rock supergroup Chickenfoot (Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith), Back Door Slam will also be performing at some of America’s biggest festivals this summer including Lollapalooza, Rothbury and Mile High Music Festival in the midst of an extensive summer tour.
