Joanne Shaw Taylor Starts New Chapter With 'Wild' Album

Joanne Shaw Taylor

(The Blues) Joanne Shaw Taylor says her upcoming fifth album Wild documents her "closing the chapter on one relationship and starting a new chapter on another."

Wild is set for release on September 30 via Taylor's Axehouse Music label and is available for pre-order now, and the blues artists admits it deals with some very personal subject matter.

She tells TeamRock: "I ended a pretty big relationship a couple of years ago and started one just before this album, so I had a lot of stuff I wanted to channel.

"I taught myself to write music so it has always been very therapeutic for me. And that leads to the music being very authentic." That authenticity is important to Taylor, who says it's the only way she knows how to write music and play the guitar.

She adds: "When you want to get up there and play for people, it's very important that there is an authenticity in what you're playing and singing, I think.

"I like having something that I want to say, getting a few demons out." Read more here.
