In addition to prolonged radio and digital media campaigns, Knowles will hit clubs and festivals across the country, including two upcoming shows in NYC at The Iridium on November 11th and 12th and also Joe Bonamassa’s prestigious ‘Blues Alive At Sea’ cruise in February 2016.
At such a young age, Knowles is already a veteran to the stage and is steadily racking up praise from critics and his idols alike. He’s been dubbed as a “favorite modern day bluesman” by the iconic Joe Satriani and has toured with countless other amazing musicians; from Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Warren Hayes and Joe Bonamassa.
Throughout this musical journey, Knowles has kept 'the blues' close to his heart and that is one of the things that has garnered him praise; “I love the guitar as an instrument, its so versatile and endlessly challenging, but whilst I will try play any style to meet that challenge, blues is the music I first fell in love with, and I have always connected deeply with it.”
