Samantha Fish Returns To The Crystola Roadhouse

A Music Company Inc. is bringing Samantha Fish for a return engagement on Saturday March 1, 2014. Doors open at 6:30p.m. and show time is 8:00p.m. Kansas City based Samantha Fish has been on a major roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Ruf's 2011 release, Girls with Guitars, and fueled by the trio's Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the U.S., created an international buzz in the blues world. Later that same year she recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like "Down In The Swamp" with the mellow small-hours jazz of "Feelin' Alright, " while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. "It's all the sounds I grew up with, " she explained at the time, "with my own spin." Earlier this year Samantha joined labelmate Devon Allman for a sultry duet of the Tom Petty classic, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around, " that appeared on Devon's Turquoise CD and accompanying video.

Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award (BMA) for "Best New Artist Debut" in 2012. "I'm truly humbled by the recognition, " Samantha said afterward. "I can barely wait to make record number two…"

Now, the wait is over, as Samantha Fish unleashes a major storm of her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on Black Wind Howlin'. "It has a rebellious streak, " says the bandleader of her game-changing new album. Rather than trying to duplicate what she accomplished on her first success, Samantha re-defines her sound throughout the tracks on Black Wind Howlin'.

Amy Whitesell of A Music Company Inc. explains; "We have watched Samantha mature as an artist since we first saw her on the Girls With Guitars tour. As she grew as an artist we watched her at festivals sitting in with much more seasoned artists like Royal Southern Brotherhood and Mike Zito. Her first appearance at the Crystola Roadhouse in 2012 was well received. This time around the house should be packed!"

Advance tickets are $18 general admission and $38 VIP (includes a reserved seat and choice of prime rib or catfish dinner) Tickets are $5 higher the day of show.
