Joanne Shaw Taylor has nothing to prove, but plenty to say. Reckless Heart, the follow-up to 2016’s Wild, finds the British musician in glorious form and a mischievous mood, one minute bearing her claws with catty lyrics, the next deliriously in love.

 

In several senses, it’s an album of firsts — the first made in Joanne’s adopted hometown of Detroit, the first produced by her close friend Al Sutton (Greta Van Fleet, Kid Rock), the first largely recorded  live (with a crack band of Detroit’s best musicians), and the first to feature an unplugged solo performance.

 

But it’s also an album that pulls the past in to the present. The good-time feel of her previous work is given a modern makeover, while Joanne’s most powerful, yet intimate vocals to date take their cue from the gritty soul greats (Aretha, Tina, Mavis Staples) she grew up on.

 

“I’ve never had so much fun making an album,” says Joanne. “I feel like I’ve reached a stage where I can stop worrying what people think. The older I get, the more comfortable I am with being open and honest. If I’m pissed off, I’ll say it. If I want to be flirty, I will.”

 

Reckless Heart is a record drenched in emotion, the rawness of its sound mirrored in its lyrics.
