Incoming! Joanne Shaw Taylor


Deeply influenced by her personal experiences, Taylor combines different
genres of retro pop with modern flare while sticking to her blues roots

Singer-songwriter, guitarist phenom Joanne Shaw Taylor kicks off her 2022 U.S. Fall Tour this evening in support of her most personal album to date, “Nobody’s Fool,” “regarded as her best to date." by Guitarist Magazine. Produced by dream team Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith and released via Bonamassa’s KTBA Records today, Fans can listen/buy “Nobody’s Fool” HERE

As a writer on all but two tracks, “Nobody’s Fool” showcases Taylor’s vocal style, writing prowess and guitar skills, taking the listener on a journey into the wasteland of love and back into the light of hope and redemption.

“I didn’t have a script for this one; I was not chained to any one particular idea how it must sound,” Taylor explains, “I wanted to focus on the songwriting, and I was able to write whatever I was feeling. I had not done that before, and I must say it was a lovely experience.”

With that freedom, Taylor treads new sonic territory in her eighth studio album, expanding her catalog by combining retro pop with a modern flare while still encompassing the emotion of her blues roots, as Rock and Blues Muse boasts “this is top-shelf blues on all levels that also packs huge crossover potential,” proving a sentiment expressed earlier this year by American Songwriter that she is “undoubtedly ready for the big time.”

Album opener and title track “Nobody’s Fool” highlights Taylor’s storytelling abilities and “sets the mood with JST’s signature husky, soulful vocals embellished with some powerful guitar lines,” praises Guitarist Magazine, while Guitar World observes lead single “Just No Getting Over You (Dream Cruise)” is “infectiously Stones-y.”

Nobody’s Fool” also finds Taylor’s collaborative spirit, with producer Bonamassa joining her for “Won’t Be Fooled Again,” Carmen Vandenburg on “Figure It Out” and cellist Tina Guo on “Fade Away,” a stripped down ballad written for Taylor’s mother who passed in 2013, with Guitar World admiring “what ‘Fade Away’ lacks in fretboard fireworks it more than makes up for in sheer power – a testament to Taylor’s sharp songwriting.”

A full circle moment, Taylor is joined by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, who discovered the blues-rock sensation when she was 16 years old and invited her on the road with his supergroup D.U.P. The pair tackle Eurythmics’ hit “Missionary Man,” the only song on the album that isn’t an original.

Taylor recently announced her 2023 U.S. Spring Tour, boasting 20 dates across the country and launching March 19 at Bilheimer Capitol Theatre in Clearwater Florida. Before embarking on her 2023 tour dates, Taylor will kick off her 2022 Fall U.S. Tourat The Center Theatre in Skokie, Illinois tonight.

Joanne embarks on an extensive 14-date UK tour from November 22 until December 11.
