Samantha Fish's incendiary live performances have
been mesmerizing audiences all over the globe. Now, with Kill Or Be Kind, Fish is poised for a major breakthrough. The edgy
roots music album was recorded at Royal
Studios in Memphis and produced by three-time
Grammy winner Scott
Billington and mixed by two-time Grammy winner Steve Reynolds. Boasting 11 original songs ranging from the
electric cigar box stomp of "Bulletproof" to the sweet Memphis R&B of "Trying Not To Fall in Love
With You", the
album is sure to establish Fish as a potent force in roots music.
launching her recording career in 2009, Samantha quickly established herself as
a rising star in the contemporary blues world. Since then, the charismatic
young singer-guitarist-songwriter has earned a reputation as a rising guitar
hero and powerful live performer, while releasing a series of acclaimed albums
that have shown her restless creative spirit consistently taking her in new and
exciting musical directions.
The New York
Times called Fish "an impressive blues guitarist who sings with sweet
power" and "one of the genre's most promising young talents." Her
hometown paper The Kansas City Star noted, "Samantha Fish has kicked down
the door of the patriarchal blues club" and observed that the young artist
"displays more imagination and creativity than some blues veterans exhibit
over the course of their careers."
As far as
Samantha is concerned, her musical future is an open road. "I'm never
gonna be a traditional blues artist, because that's not who I am," she
asserts. "But it's all the blues for me. When Muddy Waters and Howlin'
Wolf came out, what they were doing didn't sound like anything that had been
done in blues before. You've gotta keep that kind of fire and spirit. I'm never
gonna do Muddy Waters better than Muddy Waters, so I have to be who I am and
find my best voice.”
