Blues Matters! 6 26 JOANNE SHAW TAYLOR When Joanne Shaw Taylor graced the cover of our magazine back in 2002, little did we know that it would take over six years before her debut album would materialise. However, after years in the wilderness, Joanne is finally making her impression on British Blues. “I’d been putting it off for a while because I didn’t think it could be the right finished article. So, just on a personal level, it’s brought me more confidence to know that I’ve been able to put out a record that I am very happy with and represents me and where I am at the moment.”
