Samantha Fish has been a dominating force in roots music lately. The multi-talented singer, guitarist and songwriter is already a household name to OffBeat readers and she’s well on her way to becoming an international star. With success on Americana, Folk and Independent album charts, the blues star is now the latest signee to Rounder Records. It’s a fitting partnership, considering the label’s motto is “our roots run deep.”
“Samantha is among the most dynamic, compelling live performers I’ve seen in recent years. She’s a triple threat: guitarist, singer, and songwriter, and her music continues Rounder’s longstanding lineage of supercharged, blues-based rock’n’soul,” says Rounder Records President John Strohm.
He said, “Samantha Fish may be the most exciting blues-based performer to come along in years. She has it all— great songs, soulful vocals, tough guitar chops and a magnetic stage show— while often breaking the blues mold in the most gratifying ways. I’m thrilled to be working with her.”
According to a press release, the New Orleans resident is busy writing songs for the forthcoming album and is working with co-writers including Parker Millsap, Patrick Sweany, and Aaron Lee Tasjan.
Samantha Fish released Belle of the West in 2017.
