C.W. STONEKING
C.W. STONEKING
C.W. Stoneking is the embodiment of what some would say is a bygone era of music. From his rasping jungle-rock-blues, to his well-oiled locks, and his familiar all white clothing ensemble, he has converted fans across the world to his unique style.

A first generation Australian of American-descent, C.W. Stoneking was born in the top end of Australia’s Northern Territory and spent his childhood growing up in Central Australia, Sydney and rural Victoria. He has travelled the world from Egypt to New Orleans (where he worked as a hoodoo doctor’s assistant) to Trinidad, where he learned about Calypso music. He has lived in isolated farmhouses working as a handyman, and been involved in and survived a shipwreck, spending time in Africa, and touring internationally as a recording artist.

After spending the past half of a decade stamping his inimitable stylings across the UK and Europe, C.W. Stoneking once again settled down in the Northern Victorian countryside to record his latest release, Gon’ Boogaloo. Far from the sepia toned tales of marooned adventures in the tropics of his latest release, Jungle Blues, C.W. entered into the world of electricity - replacing his much-loved Banjo with a shiny gold Fender.

Released to critical acclaim in May 2015, Gon’ Boogaloo has seen C.W. embark on multiple jaunts across Australia and Europe with his delightful band in tow, including singers Vika & Linda Bull stepping in as backing vocalists. He’s set a pace that is not looking like it will slow down any time zoo, as C.W. continues to entertain and delight crowds of all ages.

“Oozes energy, chemistry and a wild imagination. It's thoroughly charming.” --The Australian

“Immaculate, old-world musicianship.” --Rolling Stone
ANDREW ST. JAMES (Record Release Show)
ANDREW ST. JAMES (Record Release Show)
San Francisco native and singer-songwriter Andrew St. James is a rare talent who has single handedly combined San Francisco’s beatnik past with it’s willfully high-tech future. St James writes and performs music that lives up to the mythology created by Neil Young, Jerry Garcia and Jack Kerouac while easily meeting the bar set by current luminaries such as Father John Misty, Ryan Adams, and other keepers of the singer-songwriter flame. But Andrew St James is in a class of his own, as a listen to any of his recorded work will make readily apparent.

Started as a solo project by Bobby Renz, Curasao is a band from San Francisco, featuring Samantha Perez of The She's, Alex Swain of Mahgeetah and Deltron 3030, and Robinson Kuntz of The Buttercream Gang and Change! Angular weird rock that is fun.

The first time I met Sierra, she asked me to dance at the Honky Tonk Tuesday night at the American Legion in Nashville. Of course i'd heard of her before - from various traveling bands and vagabonds who told me of her amazing old time singing and habit of blowing into (and out of) town.

A jingle-janglin gypsy tornado of sound that doesn't seem to care what the rules are, new & old fused seamless.
