Today, dynamic blues auteur Samantha Fish and guitarist extraordinaire Jesse Dayton release their anticipated collaboration, Death Wish Blues, on Rounder Records.

“Rippin’ and Runnin’” follows the release of earlier tracks “Deathwish” “Riders” and “Settle for Less.” The songs highlight the synergy and free-flowing nature of Fish and Dayton’s musical partnership as they expand the limits of the blues and rock genres. Jon Spencer’s production magnifies the sonic power of each track, resulting in an exhilarating collection of blues, soul, punk, funk, and exceptionally bold rock-and-roll.
