British singer and guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor has today announced that she is signing her first major label contract with Sony Music on the recently re-launched Silvertone imprint. The global deal will be for three albums starting in early 2019 plus her two most recent albums ‘Wild’ and ‘Dirty Truth’ will also be moving over to Sony.
Following her headline tour in 2017 which saw her play the biggest venues of her career, Joanne will also be returning to more intimate venues around the country to showcase some new tracks from the forthcoming album. Joanne has just completed a four week tour of America and will be appearing across the UK at various festival dates over the summer.
Joanne’s last release Wild gave her a first Top 20 album and garnered critical acclaim across the media. She has a huge, well established and loyal fanbase in the UK and internationally, and is very much looking forward to sharing new music with them all.
Joanne 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. To be part of such an iconic label that has released albums by some of my guitar heroes like Buddy Guy, John Mayall and even The Stone Roses is such an honour. I will be starting work on the new album over the summer and can’t wait to get into the studio and release the album in 2019!”
Phil Savill, Managing Director Sony Music Commercial Group is excited about Joanne signing with them:  “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”
Joanne’s last album Wild is available now and her October Tour presented by Planet Rock goes on sale from tomorrow:
Presale Wednesday 25th April @ 10am
