British singer and guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor signed her first major label contract in 2018 with Sony Music on the recently re-launched Silvertone imprint. The global deal will be for three albums plus her two most recent albums, Wild (2016) and The Dirty Truth (2014), also moved over to Sony. Upon their initial release, these last two albums received limited distribution in the USA. Joanne’s, Wild, gave her a first Top 20 album and garnered critical acclaim around the world. Recorded at Grand Victor Sound Studios in Nashville, Wild was produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, Journey, Iron Maiden). She has a huge, well-established and loyal fan base in the UK and internationally, and is very much looking forward to sharing new music with them all.

Joanne Shaw Taylor is incredibly proud to be signing to Silvertone/Sony. “Over my career, I have worked with different labels, but when I got the chance to release the next albums through Sony and Silvertone in particular, I couldn’t say no,” she said in making the announcement. “To be part of such an iconic label that has released albums by some of my guitar heroes like Buddy Guy, John Mayell and even The Stone Roses is such an honor!”

Phil Saville, Managing Director Sony Music Commercial Group, said about the signing, “We are thrilled to welcome Joanne to the Sony Music family and to add her name to the historic Silvertone label. Having such an established recording artist and a superb live performer as part of our roster is a real privilege, so we are all very excited for the future.”
