Kansas City blues rock guitarist and singer Samantha Fish will perform at Asbury Hall @ Babeville in Buffalo on Tuesday, Nov. 2. Her sixth album, “Faster,” produced by Martin Kierszenbaum (Lady Gaga, Sting) was released Sept. 10 on Rounder Records.
“The whole record has a theme of taking charge and taking the reins, in a relationship or in life in general,” Fish explains. “I really thought that after 2020 I’d end up with a really dismal, bleak album, but instead, we came up with something that’s fun and sexy and so empowering.”
Kierszenbaum, who contributed guitar, piano, keyboards and percussion to the recording in addition to his production duties, enlisted an A-list rhythm section comprising legendary drummer Josh Freese (Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, The Replacements) and bassist Diego Navaira of The Last Bandoleros for the session. Hannah Brier contributed backing vocals while Grammy Award-winners Tony Lake and Robert Orton engineered and mixed, respectively.
