Ryko is pleased to announce the U.S. release of Seasick Steve’s Man From Another Time on March 16, 2010. The tale of Seasick Steve is that of an anomaly in modern recorded music — signed in his 60’s, the US-born musician came to see a platinum-selling album in the UK, become the oldest Brit Award nominee in history and the winner of Mojo’s Best Breakthrough Act.
Seasick Steve’s “sudden” career rise began to take place in 2006 after a UK television appearance on Jools Holland’s ‘Annual Hootenanny’ BBC TV show. His electrifying performance immediately propelled him into the UK public’s consciousness. As his star rose, crowds flocked to his live events worldwide, including in a sold-out performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and appearances such at festivals such as: UK Reading, Leeds, Glastonbury (UK), Coachella, All Points West (U.S.) and Fuji Rock Festival (Japan).
