The authentic blues singer and genius slide-guitarist SAMANTHA FISH who we have described as “hot on every level…” has confirmed that she will head out on her biggest UK tour to date from January 30 – February 8, 2022.
The tour will take in nine UK concerts including London’s iconic venue Shepherd’s Bush Empire on February 3. Special guests at all shows will be the ingenious & free-spirited band WILLE & THE BANDITS.
The consummate blues artist will perform songs from her latest album “Faster” released via Rounder Records on September 10, 2021. The album includes the singles “Twisted Ambition”, “Better Be Lonely,” and “Faster.” Samantha will also perform songs from her rich catalogue including songs from her 2019 album “Kill Or Be Kind” which RAW RAMP described as an “album of resolution and tenacity…” and we gave it five (blue) stars!
You’ve got to keep […] fire and spirit…
The new album “Faster” marks Fish’s first collaboration with producer Martin Kierszenbaum (Lady Gaga, Sting), who co-wrote eight of the album’s 12 new songs and helped the genre-defying guitarist, singer, and songwriter to refine her sound and strike out into bold new sonic territory.
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.”
