Samantha Fish Tour 2022

Samantha Fish Tour 2022:Regular listeners of Blues Power with Bernard Doherty on Planet Rock will no doubt already be well acquainted with Samantha Fish’s beguiling roots sounds and next year’s headline tour will be a perfect showcase of her considerable talents.

The trek kicks off at Glasgow St Lukes on Friday 28th February and calls in at Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester, Cardiff, London, Norwich and Bristol before culminating at Brighton Concorde on Sunday 8th March.

48-hour presale tickets to the tour go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 10am on Wednesday 3rd July.

The tour follows the Friday 20th September release of Samantha Fish’s new studio album ‘Kill or Be Kind’ via Rounder Records/Proper Music.

The 11-track 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.

Samantha says of her sound: “I’m never gonna be a traditional blues artist, because that’s not who I am.

“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 going to do Muddy Waters better than Muddy Waters, so I have to be who I am and find my best voice.”

    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.

    After 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 going to do Muddy Waters better than Muddy Waters, so I have to be who I am and find my best voice.”
