We saw Joanne in Phoenix Az. And were WOW-ED with her guitar and vocals!! I thought Stevie Ray Vaughn and/or Jimmy Hendrix were in the room!?! This girl wails and puts on a fantastic show!! Come back to the US, Joanne!!! If you have the opportunity get out and SEE this girl perform!!
As an old performer(drummer/vocalist for 9 years in the 60's) I more than appreciated the unique talent that is Joanne Shaw Taylor, as I am new to "discover" her, so it was all a pleasure to participate in. I also bought the WILD cd, which is terrific. I did notice the inclusion of backing singers gave the cd a more complete sound. Looking forward to her in 2018.
