About the Artist:
Amanda Fish is an Indie Blues artist from Kansas City who scratched her name into the scene as a solo artist, beginning as a singer songwriter in late 2012. She refined her original
material as a solo act for 2 years before she formed her band in early 2014. This Roots Rock and Soul quintet features slide guitarist and Stone Cutters Union frontman Sean McDonnell.
The band’s dual slide and rock guitars along with Amanda’s signature ‘from-the-gut’ vocals locks into a sturdy groove.
In 2015, she released her first LP, “Down In The Dirt”, on VizzTone Label Group, for which she was awarded the 2016 “Sean Costello Rising Star” Blues Blast Music Award.
Amanda and her band set Beale Street on fire in the 2017 International Blues Challenge Semi Finals, playing new material slated for her next release. Amanda Fish
