(The Blues) Joanne Shaw Taylor admits she impressed Stevie Wonder by accident as a result of an onstage technical failure. The songwriter, guitarist and vocalist, who was mentored by pop icon Dave Stewart, was playing a show with his Eurythmics partner Annie Lennox, when her fuzzbox didn't go off as planned.

Taylor tells MusicRadar: "It was kind of choreographed that I was going to hit my pedal and get some sustain, and as soon as I did that, I would walk towards Annie.

"I did it: hit the pedal. But as I'm walking towards her I realised the pedal hadn't kicked in. I wasn't going to turn around thousands of people were watching so I just went with it.

"Stevie sent his drum tech to find me to say that he loved my clean bluesy sound. Of course, I claimed it was intentional!" The incident had another side-effect.
