Joanne Shaw Taylor’s new breakthrough studio album “Nobody’s Fool” releases on Joe Bonamassa’s KTBA Records worldwide Friday, October 28th, 2022.
The new album, recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, is produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith and features Joe Bonamassa on “Won’t Be Fooled Again”, guitarist Carmen Vandenberg (Bones UK) on “Figure It Out”, cellist Tina Guo on “Fade Away” and music legend Dave Stewart on a cover of the Eurythmics classic “Missionary Man”.
The first single from the album, “Just No Getting Over You (Dream Cruise)”, released today and can be streamed and downloaded here.
Joanne as born and raised in the UK and was discovered at the age of 16 by music icon Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. Right from the get-go, Joanne’s incredible guitar playing, and distinctive sultry vocals set her apart from the rest of the crowd.
“Nobody’s Fool” is her most personal album to date. Joanne’s writing lays bare love, loss, and the desire to be free of the past through the vessel of catchy hooks and infectious guitar riffs.
Her vocal style, writing prowess and guitar skills take the listener on a journey into the wasteland of love and back into the light of hope and redemption. “Nobody’s Fool” takes Joanne into new territory that can be described as retro pop with a modern flare, yet still encompasses the emotion of her blues roots.
“The title track opens the album and sets the mood with JST’s signature husky, soulful vocals embellished with some powerful guitar lines”, says Guitarist Magazine.
Joanne wrote all the songs on the album except “Missionary Man”, which is written by Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics.
Joanne co-wrote “New Love” with Josh Smith, Calvin Turner, and Dylan Altman, “Then There’s You” with James House, “Fade Away” with Sharon Corbitt, and “The Leaving Kind” co-written with Joe Bonamassa, Leslie Satcher, and Beth Nielsen-Chapman (Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt).
