Joanne Shaw Taylor is pleased to announce details of her fourth studio album “The Dirty Truth” which will be out this September on Joanne’s boutique label Axehouse Music. The highly anticipated new album sees Joanne reunited with Jim Gaines who produced her 2009 debut album “White Sugar.”

“I wanted to go back into the studio in Memphis with Jim to retain the same vibe that we captured on the first album,” says Joanne. “The new album is a combination of rock and blues. It’s an exciting collaboration, and hopefully my fans will love the more stripped down sound.”

The new studio album and forthcoming UK & Ireland tour follows 2013’s live album “Songs From The Road” that burst with first class guitar playing, soul power, gritty blues and rock roots.

In May 2013, when Joanne originally performed at London’s Borderline, Classic Rock’s The Blues magazine said, “Joanne slips from bursts of muscular rhythm to searing riffs rooted in the blues but not dominated by it… JST bristles with self-confidence, energy and excitement.”

In 2013 during an in-depth interview, The Blues magazine asked Joanne if she enjoys playing live. “How can you not enjoy that job?” she smiled. “I get on stage, turn my guitar up really loud and I shout in the microphone for two hours. It’s the best therapy in the world.”
