Seasick Steve

Like T-Model Ford, Seasick Steve (aka Steve Wold) began recording his own music much later in life than other musicians. A storytelling singer reviving traditional country blues, Wold spent his childhood in California, but left home at 14. As a hobo, he traveled for several years, jumping trains and working odd jobs. After drifting around the U.S. and Europe, he finally ended up in Norway. Aside from his respectable musical background (which includes recording early Modest Mouse, appearing on BBC television, and playing with John Lee Hooker), Wold is also noted for his unusual custom-made stringed instruments. By the time he was in his sixties, he'd finally released some official material. His first solo album, Doghouse Music, out in late 2006, was performed almost entirely by Wold. Another record, Cheap, was recorded with the Swedish rhythm section the Level Devils. An amorous seven-track Valentine’s Day EP called Songs for Elisabeth (six of the cuts were culled from previous releases) arrived in 2010. With a rustic and at time almost punk-blues approach to his material, Wold increasingly merged country blues trance boogie with a street holler voice that makes Tom Waits seem like a mainstream crooner, and the best of his songs carry a hard-earned wisdom that can only come from living on the street one block over from the edge of civility. He released the stark and powerful You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks in 2011, and returned in 2013 with his sixth offering, Hubcap Music, which featured guest appearances from Jack White and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. ~ Kenyon Hopkin & Steve Leggett, Rovi

Hardly Strictly bluegrass 2012!
This guy should have a movie made of his adventures!

He'd fit right in and could probably get a full time gig at the Flora-Bama lounge....

I think I stumbled onto him on itunes. Downloaded 2 of his albums off itunes. He's the real deal for an old white guy. He looks like he spent a long time living outside. Probably has a few outstanding misdemeanor warrants, hence no US touring...ju s t a guess. I love his raw cheap guitar, crappy amp sound....

Wow! Love the realness and rawness.
Like many here, my first exposure to Seasick Steve was when he appeared on Top Gear (UK) and have been hooked ever since. Too bad he doesnt tour more in the US.
friend put me on to him .... what a story with amazing musical talent

Discovered him on the soundtrack to Jonah Hex, and then I saw the Later With Jools Holland episode, and finally on Top Gear. I've been listening to him ever since.

Genuine, original, one of a kind. Never heard of Steve until I saw him on "Top Gear" on BBC America. Listening to him is now an addiction of pure joy. He's amazing
Everybody should spend at least one hour a day listening to Seasick Steve
