Hot off her UK tour, Guitarist and singer Samantha Fish has announced the release of her latest album Kill Or Be Kind for worldwide release. It will be released on Friday 30th August 2019 through Rounder Records. It features songs featured during her tour, including ‘Watch It Die’ and ‘Love Letters’ that were recently released as a two-song single.
‘Watch It Die’ reveals Fish’s prodigious gifts as a commanding vocalist and her sublime guitar technique, while the smouldering ‘Love Letters’ is a fiery lament about love gone wrong that slowly builds to a searing bridge and solo.
Kansas City-born-and-bred Samantha Fish flirts with tradition while pushing genre boundaries to create a sound that’s distinctly her own. Her incendiary live performances have been mesmerising audiences all over the globe and Kill Or Be Kind should see her 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’ while ‘Love Your Lies’ persuasively straddles punk, rockabilly, and soul.
In between UK tour dates, on 6th May Samantha Fish put in a live performance on BBC Radio 2’s The Blues Show, hosted by Cerys Matthews. You can hear it on BBC iplayer by clicking here.
