Joanne Shaw Taylor will release her new album Reckless Heart in early 2019 – and announces UK and European tour

Having famous fans such as Joe Bonnamassa and Glen Hughes and being described by Jools Holland as a dazzling talent, it’s hard to deny that Joanne Shaw Taylor has certainly mastered her craft and become one of the worlds most formidable guitar players. Having signed to Sony/Silvertoneat the beginning of 2018, Joanne is back for her 6th album, ‘Reckless Heart’ which was recorded during the summer of 2018 at Rust Belt Studios in Michigan.

Joanne Shaw Taylor Reckless Heart

Reckless Heart is British singer and guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor’s 6th studio album and her first on Sony Music/Silvertone. Penning all the songs on the album herself (with the exception of one track co-written with James House), and produced by the highly sought-after Al Sutton (Greta Van Fleet, Kid Rock), ‘Reckless Heart’ was recorded during the summer of 2018 at Rust Belt Studios in Michigan.

Joanne is thrilled to be releasing her new album: “I decided for this album I wanted to go further back to my roots. A large part of that was my decision to work with Al Sutton. Al’s been a good friend of mine since I moved to Detroit in 2008 and I’ve always been a big fan of his work with the Detroit Cobras, Thornetta Davis and most recently Greta Van Fleet. Working together was something we’d always discussed and in particular that he’d like to hear me do something more raw and live. The other main reason for recording in Detroit was the calibre of musicians in that town, and we were lucky enough to score some of the best in Ron Otis, James Simonson, Phil Hale and Chris Codish. I couldn’t be happier with it; we managed to incorporate my love of soul, blues and rock into the album and I think it’s probably my most honest work to date.”
