Steve Knightley is the songwriting force behind Show of Hands, widely acclaimed as the finest acoustic roots duo in England and with three Royal Albert Hall sell-outs to their name.

He is renowned for his strong, trademark narrative songs which reflect the escapades, hopes and fears not only of people in his native West Country but beyond and he pulls no punches when writing highly literate songs about bigger, global issues.

“One of England’s greatest songwriters” – Mike Harding

“Steve Knightley’s songs have developed such an edge it’s hard to deny them any longer.”– MOJO
