Drawing influences from pre-war blues, gospel blues, Chicago blues, jazz, 1920’s calypso and folklore, C.W Stoneking is an artist with a voice and you will never forget! Incorporating personal experiences into his storytelling, his songs recreate an old Southern blues sound and it is easy to hear how C.W Stoneking has been inspired by the likes of Son House, Robert Johnson, Skip James and Bukka White.
