Seth Augustus


Seth Augustus sings and howls surreal tales in a throaty voice reminiscent of the old Delta songsters. His original and haunting songs draw from many and diverse influences. After having been in several mutated punk bands in Boston and San Francsico, he stumbled upon Tuvan throatsinging (a rare vocal technique) and was instantly smitten. Ironically, this fascination with the music of a far away land brought him right back home and ignited an obsession with the Delta Blues of the 1920s-1930s. Read more on Last.fm
Seth Augustus sings and howls surreal tales in a throaty voice reminiscent of the old Delta songsters. His original and haunting songs draw from many and diverse influences. After having been in several mutated punk bands in Boston and San Francsico, he stumbled upon Tuvan throatsinging (a rare vocal technique) and was instantly smitten. Ironically, this fascination with the music of a far away land brought him right back home and ignited an obsession with the Delta Blues of the 1920s-1930s.

Soon after hearing Tuvan music, Augustus met the legendary Bluesman and self-taught throatsinger, Paul Pena (Ghenghis Blues), who mentored him in throatsinging, as well as vocals and Blues guitar. The two became close friends during the last 6 years of Paul's life. Having toured with Mississippi Fred McDowell, T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters, Paul was a formidable teacher, storyteller and link to the authentic Blues of old. In 2000, Seth traveled to Tuva, began to study with throatsinging masters Igor Koskendey, Mongoun-ol Ondar and Aldar Tamdyn (of the group Chirgilchin), and learned to play the Igil (2-string fiddle), all of which has colored and lodged itself into his sound.
