Kansas City blues crooner Samantha Fish is as prolific as she is talented. Her latest record, 2017’s Belle of the West, was her second LP of the year, following Chills & Fever. Both albums feature Fish’s melodic dexterity and her affinity for sultry blues traditions, but they also feature some of the best blues guitar lead you’ll hear from anyone in the business. “He Did It,” the rollicking opener to Chills & Fever, showcases Fish’s incendiary fretwork under a canopy of skronky brass and jangly rhythms. While she dabbles in other areas of songcraft—most notably on her third record Wild Heart, where she explored a rootsier rock vibe—Fish excels when allowing her dalliances with the outskirts of roadhouse blues to shine, as heard on the title track from Chills & Fever, which finds her exceptional backing band slinking along in an intoxicating ’60s pop shuffle.
