Never miss another 'Joanne Shaw Taylor' show
Joanne Shaw Taylor + King King
Following her acclaimed performance alongside Annie Lennox at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert in June 2012, the release of her critically acclaimed third studio album Almost Always Never, and a nationwide UK tour, blues rock sensation Joanne Shaw Taylor follows her sold out London Borderline concert with four UK concerts in November and December, including a high profile headline concert at London's o2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on Thursday 28th November.
Special guest on all four concerts is King King - winner of 'Best Band' & 'Best Album' 2012 in The British Blues Awards, plus winner of 'Best Band' & 'Best Album' in Blues Matters Magazine Writers Poll 2011.
This event takes place at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
As a guitarist, Joanne mixes many different genres into her blues-based music, including borrowing the best attributes from rock, funk, soul and pop as sources of inspiration in her writing and playing. Though she has enough chops to keep up with the best in the business, she tends to rely more on groove and emotion to draw in her audience, holding their attention until the last notes of the song fade away. On top of this, she possesses a sultry voice that only accentuates her playing and adds another level of musicianship to her artistic palette. Joanne was voted Best British Female Vocalist at the British Blues Awards in 2010 and 2011.
Joanne Shaw Taylor tour dates
Energetic and dynamic British blues breakers King King hail from Glasgow and Lincoln. The driving force behind King King’s unstoppable charge is Alan Nimmo, a virtuoso frontman possessed of an almost impolite level of charisma and the talent to back it up. An award winning bluesman in his own right and widely known across the UK and Europe. Nimmo’s full-blooded style, technical brilliance and impassioned vocals are infections and instantly recognisable.
Surrounding himself with the hottest talent currently working the scene has made King King an irresistible melting pot of influences. The result is a sound which is energetic, potent and irresistibly funky, to quote Guitar & Bass: ‘King King play the kind of blues that’ll lift the most stubborn of frowns’.
Their meteoric rise saw them inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall Of Fame as winners of 'Best Band' for three consecutive years (2012-2014) and 'Best Album' on three occasions (2012 for the debut 'Take My Hand', 2014 for 'Standing In Ths Shadows' and 2016 for 'Reaching For The Light').
