Samantha Fish will team up with American rock guitarist Jesse Dayton for a nationwide 10-date UK tour to promote their brand-new critically acclaimed album Death Wish Blues. The tour includes a newly announced special concert at the legendary 100 Club in London.
Their set will feature songs from Death Wish Blues, with Samatha also performing tracks from her 2021 album Faster. “I’m never going be a traditional blues artist,” Samantha says, “because that’s not who I am. 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 try to be who I am, and in doing that, I find my best voice.”
Guitarist Jesse Dayton has long been a well-kept secret of the music world, a road warrior touring alongside acts as diverse as George Strait, Rob Zombie, Social Distortion, the Supersuckers, and John Doe.
He is a sought-after session player and sideman hiding in plain sight as a guitarist for Waylon Jennings, Duff McKagan, Ryan Bingham, Glenn Danzig, and L.A. punk pioneers X.
Dayton boasts an extraordinary background that includes recording with the likes of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, working with Rob Zombie on the soundtracks for his iconic horror films, and releasing a series of acclaimed solo albums. Inducted in 2022 into the Austin Music Hall of Fame, Dayton’s life story reads like a “who’s who” of American music.
