Taylor, Joanne Shaw - The Dirty Truth Artist Joanne Shaw Taylor
Title The Dirty Truth
Label Axe
British blues rock guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor returns to UK shores with a Nationwide UK Tour in November 2014, which follows hot on the heels of her fourth new studio album, “The Dirty Truth”, which is currently being recorded in Memphis. The tour kicks off at the Norwich Epic on 1st November and other UK including Sheffield, Leeds, Cardiff, Birmingham, London, Cornwall, and many more. The new album, “The Dirty Truth”, is released in the UK on Monday 22nd September on Joanne’s boutique label Axehouse Records. Joanne will be reunited with Jim Gaines who produced her 2008 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, and I think it’s going to be an exciting collaboration, and hopefully, my fans will love the rockier edge.” The forthcoming album and UK tour follows 2013’s critically acclaimed Songs From The Road; a live album energized with soul power, blues savvy and rock roots.

Tillis, Bishop Perry - Too Close Artist Bishop Perry Tillis
Title Too Close
Label Birdman
Perry Tillis was born July 29, 1919, in Elba , Alabama , and began playing his brand of rambling blues at a very early age. He continued playing the blues and singing gospel, despite going blind, up until his death on November 3, 2004. In the ’40s Tillis played the Chicago blues circuit alongside all-time greats likes Muddy Waters and Furry Lewis. However, when a revelation convinced him it was the devil’s music, he moved back home and began preaching the gospel.

In 1972 Swedish music archivist Begnt Olsson tracked down Tillis at his church in Samson , Alabama, and recorded these tracks over three sessions. He was frail and old when Olsson found him, but he played the guitar, both electric and acoustic, with a mosquito-like fragility that is truly transcendent.

In an age when major pre-war blues players were being rediscovered, unknown geniuses like Tillis were still playing a style of blues (gospel) that touched upon greatness and kept alive the traditions that were inspiring the likes of The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. This CD has a hallucinatory, Velvet Underground-like groove that meanders through each hymn. The slide guitar playing is beautiful and Tillis’ voice speaks of a knowledge all but lost in the 21st Century. A wonderful debut release from an unknown blues virtuoso who is missed.
