September 20, 2019 – Nashville, TN – Over the past decade, Samantha Fish’s riveting live performances have firmly established her reputation as one of the most compelling young roots musicians on the scene.  Her Rounder debut Kill or Be Kind, released today, showcases her abundant gifts and versatility as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

Music critics are taking notice.

“For the last decade, she has been one of the most promising young blues performers working, a punchy singer and a rowdy guitarist. Kill or Be Kind is her first album for the roots-music powerhouse Rounder, and it demonstrates the range of her palette, which takes in Southern R&B, rockabilly and much more.” Jon Caramanica, New York Times

“Fish’s latest release, Kill or Be Kind, is loaded with the snarling guitar and mule-kick vocals that caused her videos to turn heads…Balancing fierce, slide guitar-driven crowd-pumpers like ‘Bulletproof’ with quieter soul/R&B tunes like ‘Dirty,’ it’s a fun mix of gentleness and aggression.” Damian Orion, Guitar World

“…she hasn’t only removed herself from the gender ghetto (“ooh, look, a woman! With a guitar!), she’s also developed an eclectic rootsy style that separates her from today’s (mostly male) profusion of 12-bar, Stevie Ray worshipping traditionalists. Kill or Be Kind is not a by-the-book blues record.”
Polly Glass, Classic Rock

“…this Fish tale keeps getting more intriguing every happy day.”
Michael Bialas, PopMatters

“There’s much to be said about Samantha Fish’s unique musical style. Her distinctive blend of blues, rock, and soul is perfectly tailored to her sultry pop vocals, a difficult pairing to pull off. But she does.”
Samantha Stevens, Guitar Girl

“Samantha Fish can take you for a ride in the country, blow your blues away, or body slam you with some raucous rawk from her oil-can guitar.”
Grant Britt, No Depression

“Samantha Fish has been killing it live for years – on stage, she’s commanding, compelling, ferocious and sexy, and she’s as good a guitar player as you’ll ever hear. This time around, she’s committed herself to putting something just as memorable on record. Her new release, Kill or Be Kind, impresses as much with its songcraft as it does with her legendary chops.”
Andrew Gulden, Americana Highways

Fish is presently on tour in the United States. Early next year, she will return to the UK and Europe for an extensive run of dates. A full list of confirmed shows is below.
