As a surprise for his army of fans, Seasick Steve has today released a brand new album which is available digitally now.


Entitled ‘Blues in Mono’, the album cover tells you exactly what to expect. Just one man, his voice, his acoustic guitar and a microphone.

‘Blues in Mono’ is a timeless tribute to traditional, acoustic country blues recorded with a microphone from the 1940s, with Seasick Steve performing the songs solo, direct to an old tape machine. This is an album that fans have been crying out for, for years.


‘Blues in Mono’ finds Seasick Steve giving some of his finest performances to deliver a fresh, stripped down blues album that offers the perfect antidote for the troubled times in which we live. Steve has curated a selection of songs to cover, from his favourite artists such as Willie Dixon, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Charlie Patton and Mississippi Fred McDowell. The album also features four new Seasick Steve songs, including the lead track ‘Well, Well, Well’.



Steve commented:

“It’s just me and an acoustic guitar, playing old country blues. I always wanted to do it but never felt worthy, but then I realised that I better hurry up and do it ‘cos I ain’t never gonna feel worthy! I tried to make it so that if you was listening you’d think I was sitting with you in your house.”


And his advice to fans for coping during lockdown?

“In the meantime stay strong, workout, and eat your vegetables!”


Seasick Steve is raring to get back on the road and his plans for 2021 are already taking shape. Festival dates including the Isle of Wight, NOS Alive and Mad Cool have already been confirmed alongside some rescheduled European headline shows.
