‘Kill Or Be Kind’

Release Date: September 20, 2019

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Samantha Fish will release Kill Or Be Kind on September 20, 2019 (via Rounder Records).

Listening Through The Lens caught the style and power of her set in Columbia Missouri last year (Roots n Blues n BBQ) – read our review of the festival.

Kill Or Be Kind might prove to be the career quantum leap that Fish is due.  The album was recorded at the famed Royal Studios in Memphis and produced by three-time Grammy winner Scott Billington. It was mixed by two-time Grammy winner Steve Reynolds.

Boasting eleven 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 eagerly anticipated.

Here’s the official clip for “Bulletproof”:

“I think I’ve grown as a performer and as a player,” Fish explains. “I’ve become more respectful of the melody. You can go up and down the fret board and up and down your vocal register, but that’s not going to be as powerful as conveying a simple melody that people can really connect to and sing themselves.” To help bring those elements to her music, Fish sought out high-quality songwriting collaborators – the likes of Jim McCormick (who has worked with Fish before and also written for Luke Bryan and Keith Urban); Kate Pearlman (who has worked with Kelly Clarkson); Patrick Sweeney; Parker Millsap; and Eric McFadden. The result is an album on which each song is distinct, but the complete work hangs together as a coherent, entirely satisfying statement. “When you get to this point in your life as an artist,” Fish says, “it’s good to work with others, because it makes you stretch. I think you hear a lot of that nuance on the record, songs that have a pop sensibility to them, hooks that really pull you in.”
