JOANNE SHAW TAYLOR

Joanne Shaw Taylor, initially discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics at the age of 16, has over the years, carved out an impressive niche for herself in the world of blues-rock. After witnessing her incredible guitar playing, Stewart immediately invited her to join his supergroup, D.U.P, setting the wheels in motion for a flourishing musical career. Her prodigious talent on the guitar earned her accolades from several industry giants, including Jimmy Cliff, Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Wonder, and Annie Lennox.


Now in her 30s, Joanne has emerged as one of the most coveted guitarists in the rock domain. Her debut album, "White Sugar" (2009), released on Ruf Records, showcased her soulful voice and exceptional songwriting ability, heralding the arrival of a new luminary in the blues-rock arena. This was followed by a series of critically acclaimed albums: "Diamonds In The Dirt" (2010), "Almost Always Never" (2012), featuring the UK radio hit "Soul Station," and a live album, "Songs From The Road" (2013), which marked her final release with Ruf Records.


Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith produced her seventh album, "The Blues Album," on Bonamassa's independent label, KTBA Records, in 2021.  The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Chart. In 2022, she released her first live DVD and her second No. 1 Billboard Blues album, "Blues From The Heart Live," which led to her TV debut on Public Television (PBS). Later in 2022, Joanne released her eighth studio album, "Nobody's Fool," with collaborations from Joe Bonamassa, Dave Stewart, Tina Guo, and Carmen Vandenburg.
