“Joanne Shaw Taylor is the real deal.” – Rock and Blues Muse “Just 15 minutes shy of two hours Joanne Shaw Taylor has amply demonstrated why she has the heavyweight presence of the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Dave Stewart, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd in her corner.” – Metal Planet Music
“Joanne Shaw Taylor is without doubt one of the best R&B/Blues guitarists to come out of Britain in a long time.” – Southside Advertiser
“The set was a mixture of old and new material, both receiving a great response from the seated audience.” – Devon Live
Guitar World-dubbed “blues guitar ace” Joanne Shaw Taylor announces her 2023 U.S. Spring Tour, boasting 20 dates across the country.
Taylor’s upcoming breakthrough studio album Nobody’s Fool, set for release on Friday, October 28th via Joe Bonamassa’s KTBA Records, features 11 tracks, nine of which Taylor either wrote or co-wrote, including lead single “Just No Getting Over You (Dream Cruise).” Praised by Guitar World as “infectiously Stones-y,” the track is available to download and stream HERE.
Recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, her most personal record to date was produced by Bonamassa and Josh Smith, and features Bonamassa on “Won’t Be Fooled Again,” guitarist Carmen Vandenberg (Bones U.K.) on “Figure It Out,” cellist Tina Guo on “Fade Away” and music legend Dave Stewart on a cover of the Eurythmics classic “Missionary Man.”
Nobody’s Fool lays bare love, loss and the desire to be free of the past through the vessel of catchy hooks and infectious riffs. Her vocal style, writing prowess and guitar skills take the listener on a journey into the wasteland of love and back into the light of hope and redemption. Taylor treads new sonic territory, expanding her catalogue combining retro pop with a modern flare, yet still encompassing the emotion of her blues roots.
Marking her eighth studio album, Nobody’s Fool follows Taylor’s two previous releases on KTBA Records, with both reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Album chart: 2021’s The Blues Album and 2022’s live concert film and album Blues From The Heart Live, filmed and recorded in Franklin, Tenn. earlier this year.
