Joanne Shaw Taylor Releases 'Sweet 'Lil Lies' Video

(Noble) Joanne Shaw Taylor has released a music video for her brand new single, "Sweet 'Lil Lies." Produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes) at the illustrious RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN, this song witnesses the magnificent collaboration of top musicians including Rob McNelly (Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Buddy Guy) on guitar, Doug Lancio (John Hiatt, Bob Dylan) on rhythm guitar, Alison Prestwood (Blake Shelton, Olivia Newton-John, George Benson) on bass, Jimmy Wallace (Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Gavin DeGraw) on keys, and Anton Fig (David Letterman, Kiss, Joe Bonamassa) on drums & percussion. Released by Joe Bonamassa's Journeyman Records, the song stands testament to Joanne's relentless creativity and musical brilliance.

"Sweet 'Lil Lies" holds a special place for Joanne. "It was the first song I wrote just for this new album," she recalls. "I'd been messing around with the lead piano part and built the rest of the song around that melody. As soon as I had that main melody, 'I got sweet little lies, all the time' stuck in my head on a loop. It probably took me less than an hour to finish it; some songs work like that." The song delves deep, reflecting the emotional journey of realizing a loved one's immutable nature and the heart-wrenching decision to walk away.

A prolific songwriter with a reservoir of new material, Joanne isn't willing to be held back by conventional release strategies. Her partnership with Joe Bonamassa's Journeyman Records has enabled her to work with some of the top music producers. This strategic alliance ensures a continuous flow of top-quality singles, making sure that her music reaches fans in the manner she envisions, cutting through the industry's clamour.

Discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics when she was a mere 16 years old and subsequently invited to tour the world, Taylor's meteoric rise has made her one of the most sought-after guitarists in the industry. With praise from renowned artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Stevie Wonder, and Annie Lennox, her credibility in the blues-rock world remains unparalleled. "Taylor has navigated the journey from rough diamond to global star," quoted ERB Magazine. "In a male-dominated guitar world, she truly holds her own."

Having graced us with albums that consistently top the charts, such as her 2019 release 'Reckless Heart', 2021's 'The Blues Album, and 'Nobody's Fool' in 2022, Joanne shows no signs of slowing down. She's currently working on her next studio album, promising a mix of evocative guitar riffs, soulful vocals, and ingenious songwriting. Following the release of her anticipated new single, this fall's 33-date tour promises to be an unmissable journey through both her classic hits and new material. Kicking off at The Rialto Theatre in Tucson, AZ and culminating at the historic Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, GA, it's set to be a musical spectacle that underscores why she remains one of the most exciting blues-rock guitarists of the last decade.

Journeyman, the brainchild of Joe Bonamassa and his long-time manager Roy Weisman, is redefining the music industry's standards. Pioneering as a music management, concert promotion, and marketing company, Journeyman aims to sculpt the careers of live artists globally. With years of experience nurturing Joe Bonamassa's illustrious career, the company harnesses its tried-and-tested tactics to break industry barriers. Journeyman offers an unmatched infrastructure, empowering artists from their early days to record and tour without the typical hurdles posed by skeptical "gatekeepers." With Bonamassa's intent to utilize his industry know-how to champion emerging artists, Journeyman differentiates itself, serving as a genuine market-maker for their roster.
