Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Don’t Say You Love Me”

March 30, 2020 at 12:10 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Don’t Say You Love Me” by Samantha Fish.

Samantha Fish is another musician I’ve recently discovered and I’m really loving a lot of her music. She’s got some great tracks. Whether you like something bluesy or a bit more modern, she has a nice variety.

Born in Kansas City, MO, Samantha has been playing music since she was a kid. From the drums to the guitar, and joining on stage with other musicians at the age of eighteen, she’s carved a path for herself and earned some serious respect. She put out her first album in 2009, won the 2012 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist with her album Runaway, and her albums Wild Heart (2015) and Belle of the West (2017) were ranked number 1 blues albums of the year. With ten albums under her belt, she shows no signs of stopping.

“Don’t Say You Love Me” is from her 2017 album Belle of the West.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Sun Rising”

March 23, 2020 at 2:10 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Sun Rising” by The Wanton Bishops.

The Wanton Bishops is a new band I’ve recently discovered while stuck at home with plenty of free time. They’re from Beirut, Lebanon and they’ve been around since 2011. Formed by Nader Mansour (vocals) and Eddy Ghossein (guitar), the two man band is regarded as one of the leading bands in the Middle East. They met outside the Bar Louie when Mansour tried to help Eddy out in a fist fight. Eddy paid back the favor by bailing Mansour out after another fight, and they’ve been making bluesy rock music ever since.

Right now they’ve got one album and two EP’s. “Sun Rising” is on their 2012 album Sleep with the Lights On. It’s definitely worth checking out.
