Bluesman Seasick Steve, born in Oakland, CA, led an itinerant life, hoboing and basing himself at various times in Olympia, WA, and Norway. The first release by Seasick Steve & the Level Devils, Cheap, came out in 2004, long after the leader had begun playing professionally. Playing electric guitar and singing in a weathered voice in front of an unrefined trio, backed by standup bass and drums, he offered stripped-down electric blues and seemingly off the cuff songs that sounded right out of the juke joint. ~ Richie UnterbergerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
