Pretty cool I'd say.
I'd say you are right on dude!I just love the sinplicity,that one string slide thing he does is sweet!Love that beat box he uses,would like to do one meself.The man has an interesting story...nice to see him playing music for a living.
Very entertaining. He plays with feel and passion.
I have never heard of him, but this is the chap on the front of the forthcoming Guitarist magazine:
Sometimes Guitarist has different covers for UK vs. US versions of magazine.
he's massive in the U.K right now. He appeared on the Jools Holland show at new years a couple of years ago and since then he's had a massive following.
I don't think he's really known in America though (even though he's American).
Do you know if he still lives in America or tours there? On his website, it seems that he just tours across the Atlantic.
I think he lives in England now
I hope he comes to the States to tour eventually.
MGuts....thankx!!! he's so soulful!!!
If you check-out some of the interviews on youtube you see a very unaffected,slightly uncomfortable man who can't seem to understand all the fame he is experiencing,this I'm sure adds to his popularity in Europe.I particularly like the "stories" he tells about his instruments,that Mississippi box in particular.It wasn't too long ago he was a hobo/vagrant going through garbage to survive.It will be interesting to follow how he deals with all the fame.....hopefully not another trainwreck.I will anxiously follow and support his music!
I like it.
I dug it...he's ALL OVER youtube...
wow, thanks for the link, I love his style
Bad ass blues man !
I think he actually moved, lives i Norway now,, right ?
theres a couple of fellow US blues musician s living over in Norway ,,and quite a few in Sweden for that matter
here is a real cool clip of him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNoPNC3ebYQ
If the groove is the almighty, Seasick Steve is the deity.
Did ya'll watch "The Dog House Boogie"? Sweet.
Was able to get one of his CDs on Amazon. Pretty much just like the YouTube stuff.
Cool story about him in Wikipedia. Great trance-style blues playing. THanks for turning me on to this guy.
i has seen the future brother :BEER
This guy hit me as a little crazy, but still pretty cool stuff!!!
I guess we'll see how far it goes... I wish him well!!! :AOK
That's a **** pile of boogie woogie outta just 2 strings! Thanks.
I found out about him on a thread here awhile back, love it! I love how he just drops his guitar at the end of that one song. He gets into it! All through a solid state Roland Cube!
