Joanne Shaw Taylor has dropped her scorching new single If That Ain’t A Reason, taken from an upcoming album that is set to be produced by blues guitar gurus Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith.

The single – a blues-infused reimagining of Little Milton’s 1979 track – is accompanied by a live studio performance video, which shows Taylor take her position behind the microphone while Smith serves up some typically tasty blues-infused treble stabs courtesy of his newly announced Ibanez signature guitar.
