Seasick Steve Wold is an American song and dance man who was born in Oakland, California, in 1941. He plays many home-made instruments. Wold left home at 13 to escape his stepfather's abuse, lived on the streets for years, and worked as a carnie, a cowboy and a day-labourer. He was a lot like me. Wold: "Hobos are people who move around looking for work, tramps are people who move around but don't look for work, and bums are people who don't move and don't work. I've been all three." Wold has travelled the world, has been married to a Norwegian woman for 25 years. They have five children. After moving to Norway, Wold released his first album, "Cheap", with a Swedish band called The Level Devils. His first solo album, "Dog House Music" was released in 2006. After an appearance on Jools Holland's 'Annual Hootenanny' on New Year's Eve, 2006 (age 65) he said, "I can't believe it, all of the sudden I'm like the cat's miaow!" He won the 2007 MOJO Award for Best Breakthrough Act, played a sold-out concert at the Albert Hall, was nominated for a Brit Award in the category of International Solo Male Artist for 2009, got interviewed by Jonafan Woss and Richard & Judy, etc., and had a TV special about him ("Bring It All Back Home") made by the BBC.
