Seasick Steve has been around a bit. During the Summer of Love in the late 1960's, he hung out with the likes of Janis Joplin Joni Mitchell, during the reign of Grunge in the late 80's and early 90's, Seasick Steve counted Nirvana's Kurt Cobain as friend and drew responsible for production and engineering duties for Modest Mouse.
Living all all over the world and making a living from busking and the odd recording studio job, Seasick Steve said about his time before becoming a global music phenomenon, "Hobos are people who move around looking for work, tramps are people who move around but don't look for work, and bums are people who don't move and don't work. I've been all three."
It wasn't until the bearded bluesman with his trademark denim dungarees and custom-made acoustic guitars was discivered by an old pal, who put him on the radioshow of London station, Resonance FM and soon after he appeared on Jools Holland, which kick-stared his meteoric rise.
Seasick Steve released his debut studio album, "Cheap" in 2004 and and his latest album "Songs For Elizabeth" was released in 2010.
