Discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics when she was only 16 years old and invited to tour the world, Taylor has since become one of the most sought-after guitarists in the industry, with an army of plaudits that includes Jimmy Cliff, Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox, and more. Still, only in her 30s, she’s proven herself as a prolific songwriter, releasing a series of #1 selling Billboard blues albums that cemented her as one of the most important exports in British blues-rock. “Taylor has navigated the journey from rough diamond to global star,” wrote ERB Magazine. “In a male-dominated guitar world, she truly holds her own.”
Featuring guest appearances from Joe Bonamassa, Dave Stewart, Tina Guo, and Carmen Vandenburg, Taylor's 2022 studio ALBUM Nobody's Fool was declared her “landmark album” and “her best to date” by outlets like Classic Rock, Guitarist Magazine, and Blues Matter, earning comparisons to Susan Tedeschi and Bonnie Raitt. “She’s one of the elite few blues artists sufficiently adventurous to produce music that appeals to a wide audience without compromising her roots,” reported Blues In Britain, who called the album “a uniquely joyful collection.” The album, produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith, was released on Bonamassa’s newest label Journeyman Records, which provides the infrastructure needed to jumpstart the careers of exceptional independent artists, who are too often overlooked by the major labels or concert promoters.
Nobody’s Fool was the latest in a series of chart-topping releases from Joanne. Her 2019 release Reckless Heart broke into the UK Top 20 Album Chart, cementing her status as one of the most important exports in British blues-rock. The Blues Album (2021), also produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith at Oceanway Recording Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, marked Joanne’s seventh studio album, and her first release on Bonamassa’s independent label KTBA Records, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Charts. In 2022, Joanne received her second No. 1 Billboard Blues Album with Blues From The Heart Live, also released on KTBA Records.
Joanne is currently working on her next studio album that will showcase a bold slate of new material from an artist at the top of her game, bringing her guitar prowess, vocal abilities, and songwriting chops to new heights.
Stay tuned for continued updates.
