Joanne Shaw Taylor: interviewed by Stacy Jeffress for American Blues Scene

Joanne Shaw Taylor (Photo courtesy of Marilyn Stringer)
Stacy Jeffress for American Blues Scene: Tell me about growing up in England and learning about the blues.
Joanne Shaw Taylor: My dad was a guitar player. Before I was born, that’s what he did. He played acoustic and harmonica and was very much into Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, more country-style blues. When my brother and I came along, he got a real job, then when I was young, he got re-interested in it. My brother played; he was Mr. Shred Metal. My dad played Gary Moore, classic rock. I wanted to play electric guitar; I’d been playing classical at school and for the Birmingham youth ensemble. I started going through Dad’s CD collection. At the time, he’d just discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan; that was the impetus for me to go down the blues route.

When did you discover this marvelous voice you have?
That was a longer process. I started singing when I was 15, ‘cause I wanted to have more control over the set list. It’s a big thing to have to sing. There are still some videos of me on YouTube when I was 20, and it’s still not the voice I have now. It’s a lot more English and very soft. That was a work in process; going out and hitting the road. It was more of a confidence issue. I never doubted that I could play guitar, ‘cause that’s what my family did. Some people go hunting and fishing; we play guitar. The singing took a few more years to figure out.

Danielle Schnebelen: Trampled Under Foot - It's a Man's World - killer bass and fine wine vocals

2012 Blues Music Award Nominee for Instrumentalist – Bassist

There’s not a time in her life that Danielle doesn’t remember loving to perform. She’d sing for the family at holiday events and also took tap jazz and ballet for many years competing in numerous events. She also took band in middle school playing the tenor saxophone and enjoyed it quite a bit but was forced to quit when they moved to Kansas City and the new school did not offer band.

She comes from generations of singers. Her grandmother Evelyn Skinner was a big band singer. Her mother, Lisa Swedlund had taught her everything she knew growing up listening to all different kinds of music from the Everly Brothers to the B-52s. It wasn’t until she was 12 that she took to the stage for the first time singing Koko Taylor’s “Never Trust a Man” at a Blues for Schools program her parents were playing at Englewood Elementary. From then on, she knew music would be her passion for the rest of her life.

She began singing in coffeehouses and at open mic events around the age of 14 while jamming with her parents at clubs that would allow minors whenever she could. At the age of sixteen, she began singing lead in her father, Robert Schnebelen, band Little Eva and the Works until fall of 1998 when he became too sick to play. In March of 1999, she started her own band “Fresh Brew” with Kansas City music veterans Steve Gronemeyer, Steve Hicks, Chuck Payne and Terry Roney. They played all over Kansas City for four years and even represented Kansas City in the IBC.

It was during this time that she and her brothers Nick and Kris Schnebelen began talking about a family band and what it would take to make it happen. Not only would Kris and Danielle would have to move to Philadelphia where Nick was living, she‘d have to learn the bass guitar to keep it a family band. It took a few years of lessons and saving money before that could become reality.

When Fresh Brew disbanded in 2004, she was approached by guitarist John Brandsgard of “The Nortons”, another group of veterans including Dane Henningson, Randy Kassin, and Greg and Gharett Schaberg and was asked if she’d be interested in fronting them until she made the move to Philadelphia. The Nortons branched out a bit for Danielle’s style of traditional blues and incorporated more contemporary blues into her repertoire. What started as only 6 months turned into 2 years of touring the Midwest while practicing bass and occasionally playing shows with her brothers in Kansas City and Philadelphia.

TEXAS BURNING with Carolyn Wonderland: "I Live Alone With Someone"

Vanessa Woods: Lead guitar for Unfallen Attraction

Unfallen Attraction has been born to stand up as one jolly well. Concentricity of love. 2006 was the point where two pure souls joined forever to become three (with love) in order to share profound emotions and preserve the original human nature in sane will with expanded wings. Embraced by music and blessed by its beauty Vanessa (guitar, voice and composer) amalgamates the drum sounds of Gabriel whose unison expresses "the precious jewel of life". A magician turning into one great energy: The light of hope, this is worth than the glory of self victory...universal music of love and perseverance grooves are their sword. Six strings of devotion and the enchanting voice of Vanessa lights the power of Gabriel's drums. It is nothing less than the romance of a dragonfly floating over a caterpillar who emerges from a vast flora all surrounded by warm and beautiful sun rays and covered by the wind chants, playful angels flying through the pink firmament and the intense glitter of the night, an elevated kiss, sparks of love...and the mixture of the four sonar points of Gerardo's bass spreading the power of an indigo feeling, flying, walking, sharing. Thinking about the world's variety of tastes we also present different versions of our music, this is Unfallen Attraction...
