Joanne Shaw Taylor (born 1986, England) is a British blues guitarist and singer, who was discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics at the age of 16. She has released two studio albums to date; a third, entitled Almost Always Never, was released on 17 September 2012. The British music publication, Blues Matters!, called Taylor "the new face of the blues". Biography: Taylor grew up around Birmingham, England, and was inspired towards blues music in her teenage years by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins and Jimi Hendrix. Dave Stewart heard her play, and in 2002 invited Taylor to join his supergroup, D.U.P., on tour in Europe. In May 2009, she released her debut album, White Sugar, on Ruf Records. On subsequent tours to promote the album, Taylor played shows alongside the American singer-songwriter, Candye Kane. Taylor's second release was 2010's Diamonds in the Dirt, also on Ruf Records.

In 2010, she won Best Female Vocalist at the British Blues Awards. Both her albums have peaked at number 8 in the US Billboard Top Blues Albums chart. At the 2011 British Blues Awards, Taylor won both Best Female Vocalist and Songwriter of the Year for her track "Same As It Never Was" from her album, Diamonds in the Dirt. On 4 June 2012, Taylor played lead guitar in Annie Lennox's band at the Diamond Jubilee Concert in London. She took an extended solo during the performance in front of Buckingham Palace, attended by approximately 12,000 people (excluding the many thousands lining The Mall).

Just before her solo spot, Taylor's fuzz phase pedal malfunctioned, leaving her with a much cleaner guitar sound than usual. This apparent misfortune was, however, ameliorated when she was informed that Stevie Wonder had loved her "clean, bluesy, understated tone". Taylor has her home in Detroit, Michigan.
