Gerrard Allman Events is delighted to announce the return of guitar badass Samantha Fish to Australia in May 2024; this time bringing outlaw country maverick Jesse Dayton, her collaborator on the now Grammy Award nominated Death Wish Blues album, along for what’s sure to be an amazing ride.
Fish and Dayton got together via an innocent co-writing session. They envisioned a sound that married the explosive blues with alt-rock. Out of this came an EP of covers, The Stardust Sessions. Following soon thereafter was Death Wish Blues, the duo’s fully realised collaboration, which topped the Billboard Blues Chart for three consecutive weeks. The record, written by Samantha and Jesse, and produced by Jon Spencer, showcases the pair’s apparent chemistry and gritty vitality. They’ve since graced the cover of Vintage Guitar and have received raves from Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Forbes, No Depression and American Songwriter just to name a few.
Fish’s 2023 Australian headline tour saw big crowds and jaws on the floor across the country – this visit is bound to be a repeat of that – and then some, with the dynamic duo having toured worldwide to much acclaim since the release of the album.
