EDITORS’ NOTES

Samantha Fish won the Best New Artist Debut at the 2012 Blues Music Awards for her 2011 album Runaway, and the Kansas City blueswoman also added her vocals to Devon Allman’s cover of the Tom Petty/Stevie Nicks classic “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” for his 2013 album Turquoise. Royal Southern Brotherhood co-founder Mike Zito helped produce Fish's debut album and returns to work his magic on this follow-up, Black Wind Howlin’. Brotherhood bassist Charlie Wooton and drummer Yonrico Scott join Paul Thorn, Johnny Sansone, and Bo Thomas to fill out the backing band. From there, Fish leads them to some genuine and nasty places with her talents as a blues singer, guitarist, and songwriter, from the hard-rocking “Miles to Go” to the dirty guitars of “Go to Hell” and “Sucker Born.” For an acoustic touch, the ballad “Over You” delivers convincingly. “Lay It Down” nails a sultry groove that shows why Fish has garnered respect in the blues community. “Last September” explores genuine country music with her strong and empathetic vocals.

I'm Howlin' Bout How Good This is!!

It's been a while since I've been this excited about a new artist. Samantha Fish is a triple threat…Sings, writes, plays. With some hard driving rockin' blues and more, this CD has it all. Who's Been Talking is almost an alt blues tune. Lay it Down and Black Wind Howlin' are rhythmic sexy, blues tunes. Foolin' Me, Heartbreaker (my favorite), Sucker Born (another favorite), Go to Hell and Miles to Go just flat out rock the blues. Last September and Kick Around have a more country / bluegrass flavor. Something for everyone!

Great. Love Samantha.

WhyNoSonInLaw? ,

The Best Female Blues Artist Out There Now. Period!

There's no better full package Female Blues Artist around as special as Samantha Fish is & will continue to be. Nobody can play Guitar as well as she does (especially live!) & nobody has a voice like hers either. It's for sure though that you'll definitely "feel" her voice, soul & incredible drive & tenacity driven thru her Guitar from each note in anticipation of the next like no other too. Besides her own stuff, Samantha Fish also plays some incredible covers that'll knock your socks off live too. What's not to like & respect in that?
