Watch “Bullet Proof” below.

Her sixth solo album and her debut on Rounder Records, Kill Or Be Kind features an extraordinary level of song craft on its 11 tracks.

Anyone who has heard Samantha Fish’ previous albums, knows she has earned a place in the top rank of contemporary blues guitarists and that her voice ranges from soulful to rock and roll belter. The songs on Kill Or Be Kind tell captivating stories, are full of emotion and catchy hooks that stay with you long after the song is over.

“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 assist with bringing those elements to her music, Samantha Fish brought in high-quality songwriting collaborators, such as Jim McCormick (worked with Fish before and also Luke Bryan and Keith Urban) Kate Pearlman (Kelly Clarkson) Patrick Sweeney, Parker Millsap and Eric McFadden. The result is that each song is distinct but held together with Fish’s entirely unique style.
