SONG OF THE DAY C.W Stoneking – Bad Luck Everywhere You Go

They don’t come much more unique than C.W Stoneking! Fronting a five-piece outfit, the Australian-born self-taught musician fell in love with the blues when he was in his teens!

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.

Currently on tour, tonight I have been lucky enough to obtain a ticket to go see the man himself and I’m a little bit excited!!..well a lot excited really!! Check out Bad Luck Everywhere You Go, a low-down bluesy track from his 2015 album, King Hokum.
