The show also features the liquid light show and video visuals behind the band courtesy of “Brotherhood of Light” the touring visual company that toured with the Allman Brothers for 20 years and for 3 years with Allman Betts Band.
Samantha Fish, international genre-bending guitarist, is one of the most exciting and inventive artists on the scene.. Guitar World Magazine placed Fish in their ‘Top 10 Best Blues Guitarists in the World’ list. A triple threat, Fish, is a singer, songwriter, and electrifying guitarist who’s topped the Billboard Blues Charts numerous times and is the recipient of Blues Music and Blues Blast awards. The Kansas City dynamo, has seven albums under her belt, the most recent being Faster, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum (Lady Gaga, Sting.) This is her sophomore release for Rounder Records, her debut, was 2019’s Kill or Be Kind. Revealing her affinity for North Mississippi blues heroes like R.L. Burnside and wildly inventive iconoclasts like Prince, the album ultimately embodies unbridled energy true to its emotional core. “The whole record has a theme of taking charge and taking the reins, in a relationship or life in general,” says Fish. “I thought that after 2020 I’d end up with a dismal, bleak album, but instead, we came up with something fun and sexy and so empowering.” For Fish, one of the greatest joys of making music is the robust exchange of energy at her incendiary live shows. And in the process of creating Faster, Fish experienced a similar exhilaration—a sustained head rush that’s entirely palpable in every track on the album. A force to be reckoned with, Samantha’s live performance is an explosive brand of blues/rock-and-roll not to be missed.
