C.W. Stoneking is on his first North American tour in two years and is stopping by MOTR Pub on Thursday, September 12th! The celebrated Australian songsmith recently relocated to Nashville, a perfect fit for the musician’s soft drawl, Southern spirit, and expansive musical vocabulary.
Southern American music has always run deep through Stoneking’s veins, with sounds of days past ingrained in his musical DNA. His capacity to seamlessly blend American roots, blues, and New Orleans Jazz with elements of early rock n’ roll, country and calypso into his complex and often humorous storytelling has captivated both press and peers alike. Following an Australian tour together last year, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme teamed up with Stoneking for a Christmas Charity duet of “Silent Night” and interviewed him on Episode #36 of his Beats 1 show The Alligator Hour. Jack White also featured Stoneking on his 2018 album Boarding House Reach – utilizing his penchant for bringing odd stories to life on the LP’s spoken word piece “Abulia and Akrasia.”
“If I could ever trade my speaking voice with a person, it would be C.W Stoneking. He just sounds like he's from a ghost ship in the middle of monster island to me. It's just beautiful.”– Jack White (triple j)
