NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With her first U.S. concert film Blues From The Heart Live released today, KTBA Records recording artist and British blues-rock star Joanne Shaw Taylor readies fans for her upcoming North American Fall Tour, including stops at The Town Hall in New York City and TPAC in Nashville. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 10 at JoanneShawTaylor.com. Joanne has also released her latest music video “Summertime” featuring Blues-Rock Titan Joe Bonamassa

Lauded as a “monumental concert” by Guitar Player, Blues From The Heart Live will be available as a CD/DVD and CD/Blu-Ray package, including a collectible 24-page CD booklet. Filmed and recorded at The Franklin Theatre just outside of Nashville, Guitarist Magazine calls the film “an explosive outing with plenty of soul and a few guests, too.” Those incredible guest performances include Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Mike Farris and KTBA founder and blues rock titan Joe Bonamassa.

“It was an incredible evening and a show I’ll never forget,” shares Taylor. “I’m so proud of the film, and I’m honored to have been joined by some of my friends for this special concert.” This historic event was Joanne’s first live performance in two years and features Rob McNelley (guitar), Steve Mackey (bass), Jimmy Wallace (keyboards, piano), Nick Buda (drums), Devonne Fowlkes (backing vocals), Kim Fleming (backing vocals), and Taylor on vocals and guitar. Public TV stations around the country have been airing a shortened version of the film for their pledge events since March to their audiences.

The audio was produced by Bonamassa and Josh Smith at Blackbird Studios, Nashville, and was mixed by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden) at The Cave, Australia. The video component includes bonus track “I’m No Angel” (not available on the CD) and also a behind the scenes featurette which includes interviews of Joanne and Joe before they took the stage.

Released with the announcement of the film and live album, debut single, “Dyin’ To Know” is available to stream now, along with “Can’t You See What You’re Doing To Me” featuring five-time GRAMMY nominee Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Her latest music video is a standout performance and features Bonamassa on the iconic cover of “Summertime”
