‘Death Wish Blues’

Out May 19, 2023

Dynamic guitarists Samantha Fish and Jesse Dayton have teamed up for an album Death Wish Blues which will be out May 19 2023 (on Rounder Records). The press release describes the album “a bold collision of blues, soul, punk, funk, and fantastically greasy rock-and-roll”. The pair has unveiled the groove-laden and pulsating first single “Deathwish” from their upcoming collaboration, the clip having a menacing retro noir vibe to it.

Death Wish Blues evolved from the duo’s 2022 EP Stardust Sessions, which featured covers of “Brand New Cadillac”, “I’ll Be Here in the Morning” and “Feeling Good.”  That musical chemistry led to a recording session at Applehead Recording & Production in Woodstock, produced by the inimitable Jon Spencer.

“For this album we wanted to keep everything blues-based, with a lot of inspiration from people like Albert King and Magic Sam on the lead-guitar parts, but we also wanted to have fun with that and take it somewhere new and different and way outside our wheelhouse.”
