Samantha Fish Bio

Over the course of her career as an award-winning artist, singer/songwriter/guitarist Samantha Fish has brought extraordinary power to her self-expression, capturing her inner world in combustible riffs, visceral rhythms, and spine-tingling vocal work. Although she is often cited as a blues artist, in truth her music could be said to incorporate multiple genres, including rock, country, funk, bluegrass, and ballads.    

Growing up in Kansas City, MO, her first instrument was the drums, but at 15 she turned her energy to mastering the guitar. In 2009, at the age of 20, she recorded and produced a live album, Live Bait, and in 2011 she released Runaway which garnered her the 2012 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist, and kicked her music career into high gear.

In the ensuing years, she has achieved over 21 “Best” awards, including 11 in 2018 alone, such as the following Best of the Beat Awards: Artist of the Year, Best Guitarist, Best Blues Performer, and Best Female Vocalist, Samantha’s 11th album, Faster, was released in 2021 on Rounder Records.
