Critically acclaimed British guitarist and singer songwriter, Joanne Shaw Taylor, universally hailed as the
UK’s premiere blues rock guitarist, shares her brand-new single “If That Ain’t A Reason”, available worldwide
today on Joe Bonamassa’s KTBA Records.
The song comes from a new collection of music that will be released later this year. Stream and download the single
at www.jbonamassa.com/streaming/jst/ifthat. “If That Ain’t A Reason” was produced and recorded by
Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
Joanne’s new release comes as a follow up 2019’s critically acclaimed album Reckless Heart, which features
Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Josh Smith (guitar), Reese Wynans (keyboards), Greg Morrow (drums), Steve
Mackey (bass), Steve Patrick (trumpet), Mark Douthit (sax) and Barry Green (trombone).
When the pandemic put the brakes on from musicians from touring during 2020 and most of 2021, Joanne
thought it was the right time to head into the studio to record some new music.
It goes without saying that the production team of Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith are at the top of their game.
They recently produced new albums for Joanna Connor, Jimmy Hall, and Eric Gales. Joanna Connor’s album, 4801
South Indiana Avenue, met with great critical acclaim worldwide, and was the second album released on
Bonamassa’s independent label KTBA Records.
It was a Little Milton song Joe texted to me when we were in the early stages of discussing songs. I’d never heard
it before and loved it. Super funky and great, almost comical lyric at times,” Joanne explains.
“If That Ain’t A Reason” arrives today as a delicious taste of what’s to come next from Joanne.
