Born and raised in the Black Country, Joanne was originally discovered by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart as a 16 year old guitar prodigy. Through hard work and near-constant touring, she is now one of the hottest young names on the British Blues circuit. She is admired and respected by many leading blues guitarists including Joe Bonamassa.
Joanne was voted “Best British Female Vocalist” at the British Blues Awards in 2010 and 2011. Her current album, Almost Always Never, was helmed by the legendary record producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Patty Griffin) in Austin, Texas. Joanne was invited as special guest to Annie Lennox performing at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert in June 2012.

So looking forward to the gig, however the sound setup was not good. Bass and Drums drowned out the guitar playing which was a real shame, as Joanne is such a good player. In the end I had to move seats to the rear of the venue to try and pick up on her playing. All around me there were empty seats, so I wasnt the only one experiencing the sound level imbalance during the show.

Shes great, but... from Zippy, 02/12/13
Im fairly new to Joanne Shaw Taylor... listened to her albums a few time, thought they were pretty good but just a tiny tad lackluster. Saw the gig advertised and thought bet shes good live though... as is so often the case with good blues performers.
Along with her band, she delivered a solid, powerful and polished performance, and was clearly enjoying what she does. Yet for some reason I came away slightly underwhelmed by the whole experience. For some inexplicable reason, there were a few rows of seats at the front - for an event where people should have been up & dancing/moshing. Indeed, the dancing was something the support act (King King, who were very good) achieved, yet JST didnt.
Perhaps the support were too similar in genre.
Perhaps the lack of power in the vocals was down to the mix.
Perhaps she didnt quite engage the audience enough.
Perhaps (having recently seen some exceptional artists like Beth Hart, Martin Harley, BRMC, RUSH, Robyn Hitchcock, Shpongle, and few others) I have very high expectations. Perhaps there was a lack of dynamic, Perhaps...
But after a few songs I found the twiddly, twiddly guitar solos rather predictable - JST, youre very talented and I would love to be able to play as well as you do, but do please remember that your guitars have ~24 frets to them, a solo doesnt HAVE to all be up at the top end. As my guitar tutor keeps telling me, soloing is about the quality of the notes, not the quantity.
Dont get me wrong - shes good. Very good, and some of here slower blues numbers were great. She deserves a following, and I hope she does well. But sadly, overall, it didnt quite do it for me

Stunning! from Sparky, 30/10/12
Never seen her live before but love her first two albums. Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see. A stunning display of showmanship and virtuosity. Joanne had the small but attentive audience in the palm of her hand from the word go. at one point whilst tuning up she commented that we were all very quiet tonight. The reply came form the crowd were just blown away by you. She and her band were clearly having a great time and that filtered through to the audience. What a brilliant gig! She even took the time to sign CDs and chat after the show. My wife comments summed it up for me. she normally finds this sort of music a bit self indulgent but she thought simply.....stunning!
