Taken from Samantha’s latest studio album “Kill Or Be Kind”, which received rave reviews when released in September 2019, “Dream Girl” is a sublime track that showcases the more downtempo side of Samantha’s eclectic musical palate. “The “Dream Girl “ single was released on Friday 15, May 2020.
“Dream Girl is about trying to be something you’re not. Someone else’s ideal or fantasy,” Samantha explains. “The video has ‘real-life Samantha’ looking for answers and inspiration. The heroine in the story might have all the pieces of what she’s looking to be, but she is still wandering through a fairy tale. There are no happy endings when you are trying to measure up for someone else. If you don’t own who you are, you’ll still end up lost in the woods.”
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.
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 wrote: “Samantha Fish has kicked down the door of the patriarchal blues club and 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 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 Fish returns to the UK in March 2021 for a six-date tour that kicks off on Monday 15th March 2021 at Edinburgh Queens Hall.
