Steve Selvidge grew up in the Memphis music scene, hearing the folk blues of his father, Sid Selvidge, who performed as Mud Boy and the Neutrons along with Lee Baker, Jimmy Crosthwait, and Jim Dickinson . That pretty much sealed the deal.
He’s been playing guitar, writing and recording music now longer than he can remember and has gone to many places with many bands and people. Highlights of this include Big Ass Truck, The Bloodthirsty Lovers, Secret Service, Amy LaVere and currently; Brooklyn, NY based band The Hold Steady. He lives in Midtown Memphis with his wife and daughter.

I’ve been obsessed with this track as of late. Great melody, lyrics, and some SERIOUS Garth Hudson action on this one. RIP Richard Manuel.
