Davy Knowles, blues guitar sensation, hails from the small Isle of Man, a perfectly formed kingdom stuck in the middle of the Irish Sea. Davy sings and plays guitars, mandolin, lap steel and harmonica. The young Davy Knowles was brought up on a potentially overindulgent appetite of Everything Blues. He has used his talents to create a mind-blowing brand of contemporary/traditional blues-rock.

Audix microphones play a huge part in bringing Davy's sound to his audiences. Front of House engineer Nate Cake explains that the biggest challenge was finding the right vocal mic for Davy. After trying out and working with a bevy of popular vocal microphones, Davy decided on the OM7 as "the one." The OM7 handles Davy's rich, bluesy vocal style perfectly, and as far as feedback rejection and keeping the stage wash out of the mic, nothing could touch it."
