Joanne Shaw Taylor
Upcoming 2019 release via Sony Music Worldwide - Following international recognition in 2016 including performances on Later... With Jools Holland, BBC's Glastonbury coverage and outstanding reviews for her latest album Wild (biggest selling album to date), Joanne started 2017 with a sell out UK tour and European tour. "Joanne is a superstar in waiting"- Joe Bonamassa "A Dazzling Talent" - Jools Holland “ Joanne Shaw Taylor has been defying blues stereotypes since 2002, when the then 16-year-old British guitarist was tapped by The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart for his supergroup D.U.P. Her debut album showcased not only her fiery, Hendrix- and Stevie Ray Vaughn-inspired playing, but her powerful vocal presence and knack for a song. She’s released five more since, including 2016’s appropriately named “Wild,” earning accolades from fellow musicians and heroes Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi of Tedeschi Trucks Band, John Mayall and more. Like Tedeschi, Taylor is swimming in a sea of testosterone in the blues world — and kicking most of the boys’ butts. - The Bulletin
A three piece power trio with a small stage footprint and an explosive live show. Think Hendrix meets early Gov’t Mule. JD Simo spins soulful psychedelic blues rock with an improvisational bent reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Though he's been performing in bands since his teenage years, the 28-year-old has begun to get national attention with his namesake group, SIMO. - Rolling Stone
With their styling, musical references, and equipment drawn from the 1960s, it would be easy to dismiss SIMO as some sort of ironic retro lark. Nothing could be further from the truth. Like Jack White and The Black Keys, JD Simo and his band have taken what was great about the rock music of another era-warm tone, direct emotions, freedom to experiment-and adapted it to now. - Premier Guitar
Sophomore album on Mascot Records released September 15, 2017 - Upcoming album on Mascot to be released in August of 2018.
