Release Info: Seasick Steve - You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks
Like T-Model Ford, Seasick Steve (aka Steve Wold) began recording his own music much later in his 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.
He may refer to himself as "a song and dance man," but American blues musician Seasick Steve - is indisputably a living legend. His latest album, You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks, is about to be released through his new label Play It Again Sam for the UK/ Europe and the rest of the world and on Jack White's Third Man Label in USA. The twelve-track album, recorded through the fall of 2010, was produced by The Dog hisself (Seasick Steve) and Henry James Wold and mixed by Vance Powell at Air Studios Studios in London.
