Joanne Shaw Taylor - Going Home

Blues-based guitar and down home cajun beat with a singer desiring to rest her soul makes for a meal of supreme taste-bud satisfaction. The beat picks up with some amazing guitar work on Who Do You Want Me To Be. The title tune, White Sugar, features an instrumental guitar funk a’la mode for dessert. A scrumptious feast that can easily be digested day after day with joy unending. Shoutout for the soul-filled Heavy Heart ("I’ll only walk behind these scars"). Joanne Shaw Taylor
