One of the most dynamic forces in the blues world today, Fish has made her name as a multi-award-winning festival headliner who captivates crowds with her explosive yet elegant guitar work, delivering an unbridled form of blues rock that defies all genre boundaries.
Dayton, meanwhile, boasts an extraordinary background that includes recording with the likes of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, touring as a guitarist for seminal punk band X, working with Rob Zombie on the soundtracks for his iconic horror films, and releasing a series of acclaimed solo albums.
Described as “a body of work born from a shared passion for pushing the limits of blues music”, it has been produced by the legendary Jon Spencer of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and ultimately melds their eclectic sensibilities into a batch of songs both emotionally potent and wildly combustible.
In support of the release of ‘Death Wish Blues’, Samantha Fish’s previously announced October 2023 tour has changed into a joint trek with Jesse Dayton.
“As Samantha Fish throws her last plectrum into the audience and walks off stage, I am left mouth wide open as to what I have just witnessed. Where has the last 90 minutes gone? Can I rewind and do it all over again?” The Rockpit
“Samantha’s bluesy vocals entwined with stunning guitar skills makes for an intoxicating mix that ranks her high among contemporary artists.” Rock at Night
“An impressive blues guitarist who sings with sweet power […] One of the genre’s most promising young talents.” The New York Times
