Joanne Shaw Taylor
Joanne Shaw Taylor
Joanne Shaw Taylor has 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.

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.

Joanne is a bona fide star with famous fans across the guitar world including Joe Bonamassa ( who described her as a Superstar in waiting ), Tedeschi Trucks, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Wilko Johnson, Glenn Hughes and John Mayall to name but a few.

Following critical acclaim in 2016 including performances on Later With Jools Holland, BBC’s Glastonbury coverage and outstanding reviews for her latest album Wild, Joanne toured extensively to sell out audiences in 2017 which included a major theatre tour in the UK which visited London's Royal Festival Hall, Manchester's Bridgewater hall and Birmingham's Symphony hall (to name a few).
2018 is looking very bright for Joanne as she penned a new worldwide deal with Sony as the label relaunches their historical label imprint Silvertone.
Greg Sover Band
Jubilee is Greg Sover’s second chapter in his journey that started with the critically acclaimed Songs of A Renegade. Charting in the Top 20 among the Living Bluesradio community, Henry Carrigan Jr wrote in April 2018 "Jubilee solidifies Sover's versatility and reveals his musical genius”. Garry Lee, Allen James and Tom Walling have brought the new songs to life in the studio and on the road, supporting some of the finest musicians touring. Sover’s eloquent songs, expressive guitar playing, and soulful singing showcase his Haitian roots and the influences of his parents, and is a confirmation of a young artist coming into his own, and affirms Sover as one of today’s most engaging performers.
