JOANNE SHAW TAYLOR INTERVIEW #1
(Originally aired on January 6, 2011)
When Joanne Shaw Taylor made her debut in early 2009 with White Sugar, fans of gutsy blues guitar sat up and took notice of the young British gal who could tear up her Tele as well as any lad her age. With her second album, Diamonds in the Dirt, the then 24-year-old Taylor brought a new authority to her playing, songwriting, and smoky vocals.
In our exclusive 2011 interview, Taylor describes making Diamonds in the Dirt and reveals her early influences. We’ll hear selections from the album throughout the interview.
