Rising contemporary blues star Samantha Fish returns to Levitt AMP Stevens Point with her exceptional guitar skills, powerful vocals and creative approach to genre-bending songwriting. Her songs are laced with stories of world-weary characters and driven by bluesy guitar riffs and intricate solos. Considered a fast-rising star in the contemporary blues world, the Kansas City, Mo., native began her recording career in 2009, immediately garnering attention for her guitar acumen and powerful live performances. Her emotionally resonant songwriting is supported by a foundation of skilled rock ‘n’ roll instrumentation and the potency of her own voice.
Fish was named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” in 2017, and her 2017 album Chills & Fever was named one of The New York Times “Best Albums of 2017.” Her most recent album Belle of the West reached number one on Billboard’s “Blues Music: Top Blues Albums Chart,” and in 2012, Fish won “Best New Artist Debut” at the Blues Music Awards. No stranger to Levitt AMP stages, Fish has delighted Levitt audiences in Middlesboro, Stevens Point and Galva as part of the 2018 Levitt AMP Music Series—and she’ll be headed to Levitt AMP Whitesburg this summer!
