Born in Chicago, Samantha Montgomery moved to New Orleans in 2006.  By day, she works as a caregiver for the elderly, and by night she fearlessly performs as Princess Shaw online and at local, open mics. Inspired by her personal joy and pain, from past and present, Princess’ lyrics resonate with honesty and emotion in a very visceral way.  It’s this truth that inspires her collaborator Kutiman as well as the emerging fans who have discovered their viral hit GIVE IT UP.
