Davy Knowles Announces New Album, Launches PledgeMusic Campaign to Benefit WhyHunger

British blues guitar whiz Davy Knowles has announced a new EP, Vol 1: Tributes — his first release of studio recordings since the Peter Frampton produced sophomore album Coming Up For Air. Produced by Steve Chrisanthou (Corinne Bailey Rae), the EP features covers of tunes by Woody Guthrie (Pastures of Plentyand Rory Gallagher (A Million Miles Away), as well as a new song written by Davy (Island Bound). The EP also comes bundled with an acoustic version of Pastures of Plenty as well as a music video for the track. Vol 1: Tributes is the first of four EPs of new music that Davy will release over the next 18 months, and part of a larger body of work that will eventually be released as a full length album through Rogue Island Entertainment.

Vol 1: Tributes will first be available via Davy’s PledgeMusic campaign, which the artist is using to help fund an ambitious 2 year tour. This continues a legacy which, since his first US show at SXSW and the release of his debut album Roll Away in 2007 has seen the artist play over 500 shows internationally including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, and sharing the stage with guitar icons Jeff Beck, Gov’t Mule, Joe Bonamassa, Sonny Landreth, Bernie Marsden, Peter Frampton, and Mike McCready. There was also a hugely successful 30 date romp throughout the US supporting the Sammy Hagar/Joe Satriani inspired “super group”, Chickenfoot and after playing his own dates in Europe, the UK and Australia, the whirlwind culminated back in the USA with Davy guesting with the legendary Rhythm Devils

Later this spring, the EP will be available via traditional digital outlets. A portion of the proceeds from both Davy’s PledgeMusic campaign and his upcoming tour will benefit WhyHunger, a global organization that provides affordable and nutritious food to impoverished communities.
