Info zu Belle Of The West

Samantha Fish will allerdings keine Energie daran verschwenden, die bisherigen Erfolgsformeln zu wiederholen, sondern sie folgt immer der Stimme ihres Herzens. So auch auf ihrem fünften Studioalbum Belle of the West, mit dem sie sich selbst übertroffen hat. Der Langspieler mit elf tiefgründigen, äußerst persönlichen Titeln legt den Schwerpunkt erstmals auf ihre beachtlichen Fähigkeiten an der Akustikgitarre sowie auf ihr bodenständiges, emotional packendes Songwriting.

Ich betrachte dieses Album als einen logischen nächsten Schritt, erklärt Fish. Die Geschichten in den Songs spiegeln meine Herkunft im Mittelwesten der USA wieder. Sie sind also sehr persönlich. Neben dem Songwriting habe ich mich aber auch insbesondere auf den Gesang, auf die Melodien und auf die Emotionen konzentriert, weil ich diesmal andere Facetten von mir zeigen will. Auch wenn der eine oder andere gitarrenbetonte Titel auftaucht: Die Saitenakrobatik steht keineswegs im Mittelpunkt der Platte. Ich liebe den Mississippi-Blues; diese Musik ist einfach echt und sie berührt deine Seele. Das Album habe ich als Chance genutzt, in diese Welt einzutauchen.

„Man soll immer über die eigenen Tellerrand hinausschauen“, sagt Samantha Fish im Bezug auf ihr neues, grenzüberschreitendes Album Belle of the West. „Als Künstlerin wachse ich nur, wenn ich mir neuen Herausforderungen stelle.“

Samantha Fish
Just a few months ago, very few people outside Kansas City, Missouri knew there was a young, dynamic musician named Samantha Fish getting ready to take the world by storm. In fact, it's not all that long ago that the 22-year-old singer/guitarist first discovered the blues and started paying her dues on that city's local scene. With Runaway, her solo debut, she now breaks out big time, announcing herself as a newcomer to be reckoned with.

The album's ten tracks - nine of them originals - incorporate "all the sounds I grew up with, with my own spin," says Fish, who seems to have spent her formative years in the Midwest soaking up a vast array of musical styles. Runaway features sharp-edged, riff-driven blues ("Down in the Swamp"), breakneck boogies ("Runaway"), smoky, late-night jazz ("Feelin' Alright") as well as hints of the sultry 70s hard rock of Ann and Nancy Wilson and the 4/4 ruggedness of the Rolling Stones. Throughout, Fish demonstrates astonishing range and depth as a songwriter. Her vocals are cool, confident and nothing less than beguiling.

Backing her on this eclectic collection of modern electric blues is the same crack team that first convened for the making of Girls With Guitars. That collaboration with fellow female artists Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde, released earlier this year, already showed that Fish refuses to be intimidated, even when working with musicians more experienced than herself. "They are incredibly talented and creative, so it made for fun sessions," she says of the well-oiled studio band heard on Runaway. Jamie Little, one of the UK's most in-demand drummers, reunites with bassist Cassie Taylor to give the record plenty of rhythmic thump. Producer Mike Zito, a St. Louis native and 2010 Blues Music Award winner, adds thick, meaty electric guitar on most cuts. "Mike and I have known each other for a few years now, so he knew the sound and style I was after. He did a great job of taking ideas and giving them direction in the studio setting."

In between making these first two albums, Fish spent a month on the road with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde for the first leg of the year-long Blues Caravan Tour. It gave her the valuable opportunity to road-test the material heard on Runaway to a discriminating audience. With an exciting new debut album now in her back pocket, the tour continues throughout the summer and into the fall of 2011, touching down at many European and North American festivals and even taking to the seas on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise in October.
