Back Door Slam are teenagers Davy Knowles (guitars, vocal, mandolin, lap steel), Ross Doyle (drums) and Adam Jones (bass), all hailing from the small-but-perfectly-formed Isle of Man*... (*to find the tiny isle, go to Liverpool and look out to sea - you might even see Douglas bay on a clear day!) Brought up on a potentially overindulgent appetite of Everything Blues, they're now using their precocious talents to create their own mindblowing brand of contemporary/traditional blues-rock. The result is a sound reminiscent of the greats (BB King, Howlin Wolf, Jimi Hendrix, SRV) but with a big fat nod to the modern music and songwriters they all share a love of (Clapton, Knopfler, Mayall, Mayer). With this exciting mix fronted by the extra-ordinary vocal and guitaring talent that is Davy K, and armed with a scutch of hit songs under their youthful belts, you won't know whether to holler for joy or scream in envy at the perfect musical package that is Back Door Slam.
