It is amazing to see so many talented women musicians embracing blues music. They are proving that they aren’t just “good for a girl” and hold their own against top-notch male guitarists and singers. One of the current best leading ladies is the belle of the blues Samantha Fish.
Samantha Fish is a stunning, passionate, and sassy frontwoman who has expertly navigated her way through blues, roots, rock, and soul music. Her style, down to her curly hair is reminiscent of classic and elegant soul and R&B musicians from years past.
But, don’t let her sweet disposition fool you; as soon as Samantha Fish lets loose, she wails on the guitar in a way most people can’t. Each note and bend are drenched with feeling. In this video, you get a clear sense of her ability to invoke strong feelings as well as blow your mind with her fierce shredding techniques.
Being able to transition from a slow-burning solo to a smooth, rapid-fire barrage of notes that seamlessly is not an easy feat. For the past nine years, Samantha Fish is showing blues fans that she belongs in the same category as their favorite guitarists as she continues to tour and record, dazzling audiences everywhere she goes. If you want a more in-depth experience with Fish’s capabilities as an artist, make sure to check out her blues chart-topping albums from 2017. Chills & Fever is a continuation from the sound that Fish began with: soulful vocals with electrifying guitars and jazzy horn lines in the background. Belle of the West, released the same year, is equally an amazing effort but dips into the Americana and roots side of things.
Don’t miss your chance to see Samantha Fish do her thing on Bonamassa’s 2019 Keeping the Blues Alive Cruise. The blues beauty will be jamming alongside some of the best blues guitarists on the scene like Walter Trout, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and many more!
