Product description

Product Description

British blues rock guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor returns to UK shores with a Nationwide UK Tour in November 2014, which follows hot on the heels of her fourth new studio album, “The Dirty Truth”, which is currently being recorded in Memphis. The tour kicks off at the Norwich Epic on 1st November and other UK including Sheffield, Leeds, Cardiff, Birmingham, London, Cornwall, and many more. The new album, “The Dirty Truth”, is released in the UK on Monday 22nd September on Joanne’s boutique label Axehouse Records. Joanne will be reunited with Jim Gaines who produced her 2008 debut album White Sugar. “I wanted to go back into the studio in Memphis with Jim to retain the same vibe that we captured on the first album,” says Joanne. “The new album is a combination of rock and blues, and I think it’s going to be an exciting collaboration, and hopefully, my fans will love the rockier edge.” The forthcoming album and UK tour follows 2013’s critically acclaimed Songs From The Road; a live album energized with soul power, blues savvy and rock roots. In May 2013, when Joanne originally performed an intimate concert at London’s Borderline, The Blues magazine wrote, “Joanne slips from bursts of muscular rhythm to searing riffs rooted in the blues but not dominated by it… JST bristles with self-confidence, energy and excitement.” In 2013 during an in-depth interview, The Blues magazine asked Joanne if she was having fun playing live. “How can you not enjoy that job?” she responded. “I get on stage, turn my guitar up really loud and I shout in the microphone for two hours. It’s like the best therapy in the world.” In November 2013, TV presenter Malcolm Gerrie said the following about Joanne in the Sunday Times – “Who said white gals can’t play the blues? Killer licks, soaring solos and heart-wrenching vocals.“A Brummie blues singer? Yes, really,” wrote the Sunday Telegraph about Joanne last November. “Joanne Shaw Taylor has enough soul to compete with the best the Mississippi Delta has to offer.”

I stumbled over Joanne Shaw Taylor - unknowingly watched her perform at the Diamond Jubilee Concert in 2012 and subsequently picked up a couple of her albums - including the excellent live album "Songs from the Road".
This is truly an excellent album. Her playing has matured - she picks the right notes more often and executes much more cleanly than in previous recordings - helped by clearly slicker production.
I will listen to this often and for a long time.

Similar to another reviewer on here, as a blues fan I am ashamed to say I had never heard of JST till recently. Fortunately I discovered her work in time to get a ticket for her recent gig in Sheffield. I have 47 years of gig-going behind me and I can honestly rank that show in the top 10 I have ever attended. Well, I started with The Dirty Truth and it's great, but for me it is topped by almost Always Always Never, a superb collection of down home blues playing...and what a voice. She does it for me. I shall now get all her other albums. What a find she is and God love her.

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't listened to much by Joanne Shaw Taylor but from the opening song "Mud honey" it is clear that this is a really fine blues rock CD with both Joanne's distinctive understated rasping vocals and wonderful, fluid expressive guitar playing. It's hard to believe that one so relatively young can produce such accomplished work that is both hard-hitting and yet also subtle and while it clearly displays her influences, such as Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, she is also forging her own unique sound. She has returned to Memphis to the producer of her debut CD Jim Gaines for this record and he has delivered a fine-sounding collection of songs with Joanne's various guitar sounds being particularly impressive. Although Joanne is quickly developing her own distinctive sound there is still lots of variety here - from the swampy title track, to the soulful ballad "Tried, tested and true" (probably my favourite track at the moment) to the rocking "Feels like home" and the bluesy "Shiver and sigh" with its great guitar work. This is a very good record, with great playing, singing and also good song writing.

Dave Stewart’s discovery of Joanne Shaw Taylor, when the Eurythmics musician and producer heard the then 16-year-old's demo, has led to blues fans on both sides of the pond making their own discovery of the British blues rock guitarist and singer via her first three studio albums, numerous live shows, the 2013 live release Songs From the Road and now Taylor’s fourth studio album in five years, The Dirty Truth.

While Taylor’s previous brace of studio albums, the soul-blues orientated Almost Always Never (2012) and the grittier Diamonds in the Dirt (2010) were strong releases, The Dirty Truth is their superior.

The Dirty Truth recalls Joanne Shaw Taylor’s 2009 debut album White Sugar in feel, sound (both were produced by Grammy Award winning producer Jim Gaines at the Bessie Blue studio in Tennessee) and mix of styles, including blues-rock, slow blues, shuffle based numbers and some soul-pop blues.

From the edgy rock ‘n’ blues of gangster-tale opener 'Mud, Honey' through to the Hendrix-esque closer 'Feels Like Home' The Dirty Truth is a big slice of guitar-led blues, with husky vocals that can bring a soft touch to proceedings (such as on 'Fool In Love') or deliver a fuller cry akin to a slightly smoother Tina Turner.
All complimented by some fabulously feisty blues licks from Taylor and solid accompaniment from Dave Smith (bass), Steve Potts (drums) and Rick Steff (keyboards).
