Samantha Fish’s debut album Runaway has all the elements a great blues album should have.
The album begins with “Down in the Swamp,” which immediately hits with driving blues guitar riffs and Fish’s unique vocal style. The title track “Runaway,” continues with more blues guitar riffs while Fish gives the listener a taste of her range.
While most of the album is in a heavy blues/rock style where Fish shows off her incredible vocal range, she takes the album down a notch toward the end and the listener gets to experience a different side of Fish’s vocal. The final track, “Feelin’ Alright,” is a slow blues where Fish grabs the listener with a mellowed out, soft and cool vocal.
With rocking blues guitar riffs and a voice with no shortage of impressive vocal range, Runaway is a very promising debut.
