In the organizer's words:

20 years after his sensationally late career start, US blues rocker Seasick Steve is coming to Germany for four shows. He will be presenting his new album "A Trip A Stumble A Fall Down On Your Knees" live in Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin and Hamburg at the end of October/beginning of November.

Seasick Steve is and remains the ultimate late bloomer. Having long since arrived on the world's biggest stages, the concert list for his last tour of Germany ended up being twice as long as originally planned, as more and more additional dates had to be booked. This year sees new music from the then 73-year-old, whose name stands for a highly grounded mix of blues and boogie, Americana and folk. The album "A Trip A Stumble A Fall Down On Your Knees", which he will also be presenting live in this country in the fall, will be released on June 7th.

One of the highlights of the new long player is clearly the single "Backbone Slip", which was released in advance. The single, which he himself gave "an 8/10 in terms of danceability", also contains the unofficial motto for the upcoming German shows, when he invites his fans to dance: "You've got to loosen your hip".

As the title suggests, the new record was actually "created by accident", says Seasick Steve, whose early hobo and traveling years are still his most important source of inspiration. "We just stumbled into it, and yet it's already my absolute favorite album. I've never been as proud of an album as I am of this one. Not a night really goes by that I don't thank the lucky star that showed us the way to this album."

Almost exactly two decades have passed since a completely unknown 53-year-old first took to the TV stage on Jools Holland's "Hootenanny" New Year's Eve show - and suddenly became an international blues phenomenon. Since then, Seasick Steve has been captivating people with his ultra-earthy and absolutely true-to-life sound: he has performed on the most prestigious stages, headlined festivals, sold millions of albums and catapulted the blues onto playlists time and time again. "I really can't believe I get to do this," commented the singer-songwriter years after the surprising start to his career, when half a dozen albums had long since been released. In the meantime, the first dozen are also full, with many of these longplayers even reaching the top 10 in the British charts. His name last appeared in the top 40 in this country in 2020.

It's not just the timing of Seasick Steve's career that is unique. His entire self-image as a musician is too: after all, the audience is his boss, as he put it a few years ago. He simply owes it to the people to give his all night after night.
