Seasic Steve Biography - Homeless to Household Name
in San Francisco in 1941, Steve Wold fell in love with the guitar as a young boy, turning his talents to his advantage after
apparently running away from home at the age of 13. Spending his teen years hopping between freight trains, he busked for
dinner money before spending the '70s working in poorly paid jobs. He later moved to Tennessee, where he built a small recording
studio, before relocating to Seattle in the '90s. Bands in the emerging grunge scene appreciated his authenticity and the
singer was soon collaborating with the likes of Bikini Kill and Modest Mouse.
Wold later ventured to Oslo, where he
garnered his alias after an unfortunate incident on a booze cruise. His music was eventually picked up in the UK and his star
went supernova after an amazing appearance on Jools Holland's annual Hootenanny New Year's Eve TV show in 2006. The
following summer he appeared on more European festival bills than any other artist, propelling him to a Mojo Awards win and
the UK Top 10. He's since played huge shows at the Royal Albert Hall, Glastonbury and Latitude and his UK fan base continues
to grow. His sixth studio album Hubcap Music has cemented this grassroots musician as a true icon - find out how by
