No comments

Kansas City just got done proud at this year’s Blues Music Awards with Amanda Fish snagging the Best Emerging Artist Album (for her album Free) award and Danielle Nicole winning two categories – Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist and Instrumentalist-Bass.

Get your CDs from Amanda Fish here – and even more importantly – hear her live at some of her upcoming shows.

Sometimes hearing Amanda’s powerful vocals, you may miss all the words in her lyrics. LISTEN – pay attention. You don’t get to hear this kind of poetry often.

From Down in the Dirt – Watch It All Burn

Who was I, so wild eyed
Green wheat among the chaff
Affected by the wine and frost
Still learning how to laugh
The wind had cut me to the bone
And bore your strategy
You sheltered and in shadow sought
To dim the light in me

This stuff is from the guts of a true poet-artist – raw, real and relatable.

The power of Danielle Nicole is keenly felt by experiencing her music in concert. Harnessing every beat, relishing every syllable, Danielle steals you out of the audience and puts you under her mesmerizing spell – where you willingly linger. Take the trip with her. If you go to her concerts, you won’t have a choice anyway. Just give in and enjoy the ride.

Get ahead of the crowd as she is often sold out in advance. Looking for something to wear to the concert? Check out her merch store!
