Seasick Steve is your average sixtysomething former carnie/farmhand/hobo turned globally acclaimed blues musician that just so happens to be huge in the UK and who only recently inked a record deal with Jack White. Yawn. In all seriousness, Seasick Steve is one of those rare musical anomalies that is easy to root for—even if his music veers toward gimmicky at times—as he barks and yammers with a sandpapered yelp and hammers away at a series of instruments that look like they belong in, or were rescued from, the trash heap. His Third Man Records debut will be out later this year and success on this side of the pond is likely to follow. If not, he can always go back to being a carnie. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
