“It was strange (and ambitious) announcing a tour because we were all locked down fighting this virus. We’re still fighting! We’ve had to amend some dates along with a couple of new shows for our 2021/2022 UK tour, in some amazing venues. I can’t wait to get out there and play for you all and really want to have something to look forward to, and I hope you do, too!" - Samantha Fish
Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, Samantha Fish has rescheduled her March 2021 UK Tour. She will now play three of her UK concerts in September 2021 (Newcastle, Edinburgh, and London), with a further five concerts in February 2022 (including the rescheduled Bath, Manchester, Nottingham) Additional dates in Cardiff and Brighton have been added.
In September 2019, the genre-bending guitarist, singer, and songwriter released her critically acclaimed album “Kill Or Be Kind” which featured two rock radio singles “Bulletproof” and “Watch Them Die.” Samantha’s incendiary live performances have been mesmerizing audiences around the world.
“Kill Or Be Kind” has proven to be Samantha’s breakthrough album. The edgy roots music platter was recorded at the legendary 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 has established Fish as a potent force in roots, Americana and rock and roll.
After launching her recording career in 2009, Samantha quickly established herself as a rising star in the contemporary blues world. Since then, the charismatic 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 wrote: “Samantha Fish has kicked down the door of the patriarchal blues club and 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 going be a traditional blues artist, because that's not who I am," says Samantha. "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 got to keep that kind of fire and spirit. I'm never going to do Muddy Waters better than Muddy Waters, so I have to be who I am and find my best voice.”
