Joanne Shaw Taylor is Set to Rock Southport this Weekend!

Joanne Shaw Taylor is a force to be reckoned with, having established herself as the UK’s number one star of the blues rock world. The girl with the big voice from the Black Country has toured extensively around the world, released critically acclaimed albums and gained a global fan base as well as having the honour of playing alongside some of her musical idols.

She is a bona fide star with famous fans across the guitar world including Joe Bonamassa, Tedeschi Trucks, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Wilko Johnson, Glenn Hughes and John Mayall to name but a few.

Joanne’s debut album White Sugar first opened the door and Joanne’s career has since gone stratospheric, with her breaking the notoriously hard-to-crack US market. She beat the stereotypes of her age and gender, gaining acclaim from critics and peers alike. Subsequent albums; Diamonds in the Dirt, Almost Always Never and Songs From The Road followed and saw Joanne’s fan base rise globally.

In 2014 Joanne reunited with her White Sugar album producer Jim Gaines and recorded her new studio album in Memphis.  That album entitled The Dirty Truth was a return to Joanne’s original sound that mixes rock riffs with blues influences.  The album was released in the UK in September 2014 on Joanne’s own independent boutique label Axehouse Records to critical acclaim across the world and has already become her biggest selling album to date.

She is joined on stage by her special guest Aron Keylock who is releasing his debut album Against The Grain.

Joanne’s new album ‘Wild’ was released 30 September and is available to buy on the night.
