We are all currently experiencing unprecedented times and our lives are set to change forever. Music events are being cancelled/postponed on a daily basis but we hope that when this pandemic thankfully leaves us and we are allowed to return to whatever normality becomes, the gig diary will be replenished. Samantha Fish may well have been the last American artist to have toured the UK before lockdown and she now gives us hope for the future.
“I know it feels a bit strange announcing a tour because we’re all locked down fighting this virus right now, but we’ve been working hard to set up my 2021 UK tour, in some amazing venues, and to be honest I want to have something to look forward to, and I hope you do, too!” – Samantha Fish, 30th March 2020
Samantha Fish returns to the UK in March 2021 for a six-date tour that kicks off on Monday 15th March 2021 at Edinburgh Queen’s Hall. Tickets go on sale Friday 3rd April via www.alttickets.com/samantha-fish-tickets and www.samanthafish.com/tour
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.
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.”
Samantha did sell out the majority of her recent UK tour so give yourselves something to look forward to and grab your tickets which go on sale on Friday 3rd April, 2020 via: www.alttickets.com/samantha-fish-tickets and www.samanthafish.com
