"Just No Getting Over You (Dream Cruise)" - Official Music Video

Joanne Shaw Taylor was discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics at the age of 16 who, having watched her play, immediately invited her on the road with his supergroup D.U.P. A career in music was born and in the proceeding years, her incredible guitar playing saw her build an army of plaudits including Jimmy Cliff, Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Wonder and Annie Lennox.
 
Still only in her 30’s, she has become one of the most sought-after guitarists in the world of rock. She released her first album on Ruf Records entitled White Sugar (2009), unleashing her distinct soulful voice on the world, and demonstrating a song writing prowess way beyond her years. Over the next few years, she released critically acclaimed albums including her sophomore album Diamonds In The Dirt (2010), Almost Always Never (2012) which featured the UK radio hit “Soul Station,” plus her final album for Ruf Records, the live album Songs From The Road (2013).
 
In 2014 she released her fourth studio album The Dirty Truth on Axehouse Records that featured the singles “Mud, Honey” and “Wicked Soul.” In 2016, Joanne followed up with the release of her fifth album Wild (Produced by Kevin Shirley) which saw her perform songs “Dyin’ To Know” and “Summertime” on BBC Two Television’s popular music show “Later With Jools Holland.” Three years later, in 2019 she signed to Silvertone Records via Sony Music and released her sixth studio album, Reckless Heart.
 
Over the past two decades, Taylor has proven herself as a prolific songwriter, with seven acclaimed albums under her belt, each increasingly more successful with her 2019 Reckless Heart breaking into the UK Top 20 Album Chart and cementing herself as one of the most important exports in British blues-rock.
 
The Blues Album produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith at Oceanway Recording Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, marked her seventh studio album and was her first released on Bonamassa’s independent label KTBA Records in 2021, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Charts. In 2022 Joanne received her second No. 1 Billboard Blues Album with Blues From The Heart Live, also released on KTBA Records.
 
Taylor is set to release her highly anticipated eighth studio album Nobody’s Fool on Oct. 28, with returning producers Bonamassa and Smith.
