Joanna Connor - Destination new Single

Joanna Connor releases her new single “Destination” produced by and featuring Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith, on Friday February 26th; on the same day she releases her new album “4801 South Indiana Avenue” via Bonamassa’s new record label KTBA Records (Keeping the Blues Alive).

Joanna’s new single, “Destination”, a raw and gritty blues rock cover of the Assassins classic, is available to stream and the new album is available to pre-order HERE.   

 To celebrate the new single, Joanna has just premiered the official music video for the single on YouTube.  Please feel free to share the music video on your website and on your socials, and let readers know the single is out this week.  Feel free to review the single, too.

Says Joanna, “Destination is a real house rocking tune written by a somewhat overlooked band called The Assassins, led by Jimmy Thackeray. It was made sweeter by the soulful background vocals of Jimmy Hall. Joe and Josh joined on as well. It’s a great showcase for my frantic and frenetic guitar work.”

Joanna’s new “Destination” single features Joanna on lead vocals and slide guitar, Joe Bonamassa on guitar and backing vocals, Josh Smith on guitar, backing vocals by Jimmy Hall, and Reese Wynans on keys (ex-Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble.
Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith play guitar on every track on the new album. The guitar playing on the album is impeccable, raw and really exciting to listen to. There is almost a live feel on all the tracks which makes the songs jump out of the speakers.

Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith produced the album at Ocean Way Sound in Nashville in February 2020 (a month after Joe recorded his “Royal Tea” album at Abbey Road Studios in London). Joe banned guitar effects pedals from the recording of the album, and brought in vintage amps from his personal collection. All songs were performed in one, two or three takes. Any songs that didn’t nail it in three takes were not included on the album.
