British blues guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor was discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics at the age of 16. In the two decades since, she’s carved out an impressive niche in the world of blues-rock. After witnessing her inspired musicianship, Stewart invited her to join his super group D.U.P., setting the wheels in motion for a flourishing musical career. Taylor’s prodigious talent has earned her accolades from many industry giants including Jimmy Cliff, Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Wonder, and Annie Lennox.

Joanne has evolved into a prolific songwriter, with each of her albums being more successful than the last. Her sixth recording, Reckless Heart, broke into the UK Top 20 Album Chart in 2019, solidifying her standing as an important British blues-rock export.

In a significant collaboration, Joanne teamed up with producers Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith for her seventh record, The Blues Album, released under Bonamassa’s independent label in 2021. The powerhouse project not only showcased Joanne’s deepening artistry and evolving sound but also earned critical acclaim and popularity, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Chart. This achievement marked a pivotal moment, underscoring her status as a leading figure in the blues-rock genre.

Building on this momentum, in 2022 Taylor released her first live DVD coupled with a live album that also reached No. 1 on Billboard Blues. A testament to her electrifying live performances, it further elevated her profile, leading to a celebrated TV debut on PBS.

Joanne’s eighth studio album came quickly later that year and was titled Nobody’s Fool. A culmination of her musical journey, it featured contributions from a diverse array of talents including Joe Bonamassa, Dave Stewart, Tina Guo, and Carmen Vandenburg.

As Joanne strides into 2024 and beyond, her tour schedule remains as busy and expansive as ever, spanning both national and international stages. Joanne’s ninth album Heavy Soul will be released June 7, 2024, just in time for her reappearance in Buffalo, NY. A bold slate of material from a performer at the top of her career, Heavy Soul melds Taylor’s guitar prowess, vocal abilities, and songwriting chops to reach new heights. Heavy Soul is once again released on Joe Bonamassa’s record label Journeyman LLC.

With such a vibrant and promising year ahead, Joanne Shaw Taylor is set to further solidify her standing as a formidable force in the global blues-rock scene. Her ongoing journey is a testament to her enduring passion, boundless creativity, and the ever-growing appeal of her soul-stirring music.
