Samantha Fish – Black Winds Howlin’ (2013)

samOne might recall Samantha Fish as the winner of the 2012 Blues Music Awards’ Best New Artist Debut category for her 2011 breakout album Runaway. Perhaps her name rings a bell from the work she put into the Girls With Guitars trio alongside Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde. Even still, blues fans will likely remember the young Kansas City star from the vocals she contributed to Devon Allman’s cover of the Tom Petty-Stevie Nicks classic “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” for Allman’s 2013 album Turquoise. Whatever the connection, Fish fans will be excited to learn that the release of her sophomore album Black Wind Howlin’ is just around the corner.
Produced by Royal Southern Brotherhood co-founder Mike Zito and featuring the talents of Paul Thorn, Johnny Sansone, Bo Thomas, and Royal Southern Brotherhood band mates Charlie Wooton and Yonrico Scott, Black Wind Howlin’ is chock-full of talent from some of modern blues’ best. Fish earned writing credits on 11 of the album’s 12 tracks, but for “Who’s Been Talking?” she offers a nod to Howlin’ Wolf in a harmonica-heavy track that sounds more like a classic itself than a tribute. Meanwhile, several of Fish’s original tracks provide snapshots of Fish’s own vast range of influences and experiences. “Got mouths to feed, my word to keep / I’m on the run with miles to go,” Fish sings on the jaunty “Miles to Go,” a lyric that reflects the timeless lifestyle of the touring musician. The album’s title track similarly samples the narrative tradition of classic blues as Fish sings of repentance and retribution, a style she revisits on the country-tinged “Last September.”
“Lay It Down” jumps in as the record’s runaway hit, a song with a dependable rocking beat that inspires a sweetly simple guitar lick and strong vocal bursts from Fish. With a discreet reference to Runaway woven into the lyrics, “Lay It Down” stands as evidence of Fish’s continued songwriting prowess and vocal skill as one of blues’ recognized rising talents.

liLydia Warren  new studio album “Hotel Beds,” featuring Josh Fulero on guitar (Curtis Salgado, Mark Hummel), Danny Banks on bass (John Németh), and Chris Rivelli on drums (Roomful of Blues, Janiva Magness). The ten song album showcases what Lydia has become known for: a deep love and mastery of West Side Chicago blues. “Hotel Beds,” cut live in the studio during one 48-hour recording session, is the audible culmination of 13 years of live performances, countless appearances with blues masters, and trials and tribulations in love and life. Songs run the gamut from the flirty title-track shuffle, to the moody slide-infused “Memphis,” to the classic slow blues “So Many Roads.”
