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.
