The 29-year-old guitarist and songwriter from Kansas City is one of the great blues women of her generation. Since her debut in 2009, she has released five studio albums including her brand new Belle of The West (Ruff Records) released this year. As talented on the electric guitar as on the acoustic, Fish is even playing a thunderous version of War Pigs by Black Sabbath in a wink, but also offers jubilant covers of the late R.L. Burnside (Poor Black Mattie) and Lillie Mae (Nearing Home), jewels of rural Mississippi, where she recorded Belle of The West with the famous producer Luther Dickinson. Sacred "Artist of the Year" in the blues category at the Blues Music Awards Gala last May in Memphis, in front of such stars as Beth Hart and Shemekia Copeland, Samantha Fish fulfill all promises.
