2020 Blues Music Award Nominee - Contemporary Blues Festival Artists
WINNER - 2018 Contemporary Blues Festival Artist | Best New Artist Debut 2012
Multi-award-winning Samantha Fish…"I'm never going to be a traditional blues artist, because that's not who I am. But it's all the blues for me."
One of the hottest talents on the planet, supercool, Samantha can shred on a guitar, going from electric to acoustic with ease. She is bold and expressive, her vocal style is a combo of bluesy, snarled, accented growl with a dose of femininity. She can bring the crowd to their feet and has continued to be one of the best festival closers across the nation.
Fish is a charismatic young singer-guitarist-songwriter who has earned a reputation as a rising guitar hero and powerful live performer, while releasing a series of acclaimed albums that have shown her restless creative spirit consistently taking her in new and exciting musical directions.
The New York Times called Fish “an impressive blues guitarist who sings with sweet power” and “one of the genre’s most promising young talents.” Her hometown paper The Kansas City Star noted, “Samantha Fish has kicked down the door of the patriarchal blues club” and observed that the young artist “displays more imagination and creativity than some blues veterans exhibit over the course of their careers.”
“Overall my big goal, career-wise, is to contribute something different and new to music. I want to give something that stands apart and yet is timeless".
