He plays guitar like a demon, wears natty threads, sings catchy tunes and mutters to himself. The idiosyncratic C.W. STONEKING is a true entertainer who relies on musicianship stagecraft and performance to invoke the spirit of the 1920's Deep South blues in his original hokum style.
C.W. Stoneking presents here his latest release 'KING HOKUM' produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations), it contains 11 of C.W.'s original numbers.
Set in an imaginary old-time Southern town populated with singing dodo birds, sinister handymen, brokenhearted street singers and old testament field hollerers, the album also features C.W.'s backing band the Primitive Horn Orchestra on a number of tunes helping to complete the 1920's southern gothic blues sound.
Born in the USA then moved to Australia at the age of 5 to live in the Outbacks with the Aboriginals, Growed up and as a Teenager Found a Guitar and Played the Blues on the Streets in Melbourne, joined some Blues Cover Bands until he found hes own Blues.
The Blues that C.W. Stoneking plays is is based in the 1920 and 30s with instruments such as the steel Guitar, Clarinette, Jug Trombone and and and.. instruments that dont makes it to new recordings these days
