Hailing from the heart of San Francisco, Sam “Oh Blimey” McDonald is a female rapper, singer and songwriter armed with an unmatched passion for artistry. Oh Blimey's musical background extends two generations, to a blues musician father and jazz musician grandfather, which adds unique depth to her musical knowledge. At the age of twelve, Oh Blimey gained clout battling fellow MC's on the school yard and returned to the craft recently to claim epic victories in the world's largest battle league, "Grindtime Now.” In 2011, she was the first female to ever battle at "Rock the Bells," one of the largest hip-hop festivals in the nation. Her go-getter mindset, dreamer's spirit, and West Coast flavor are all reflected in her edgy (dynamic) lyrics.
Most recently, Oh Blimey has satisfied crowds all over California with exceptional performances from her full length debut project "MVP Season." When she's not busy writing radio ready hip-hop bangers, winning the hearts of fans, or lyrically destroying an opponent in a rap battle, she enjoys playing acoustic guitar and writing folky love songs.

“Oh Blimey is an unstoppable force breaking walls for female artists and performers across art forms. She is holding the door open for a whole new wave of artists and musicians: those who transcend genres and expectations. Her musical abilities, composure and craft are constantly and increasingly impressive. She is a brilliant example of why one should follow their dreams and I am thrilled with the model she is providing for young people everywhere."
-Katelyn Lucas, Founder of The Voice of A Generation (www.tvoag.com)
"Oh Blimey is a rare artist who combines the brash bravado and aggression of a battle rapper with the vulnerability and fearless honesty of a true song- writer. I've seen her destroy emcees in a boxing ring and bring an audience to a hushed silence over a guitar. She's a one of a kind."
-Jamie DeWolf, Bay Area Slam Poetry Legend, Mastermind and Host of Tourettes Without Regrets (www.touretteswithoutregrets.com)
