C.W. Stoneking is an artist for whom "unexpected" is probably the default setting. How else to describe such a fine purveyor of American roots music who also happens to be a towering, youthful-faced white Australian man? He surprises first-time listeners, throws curveballs at long-time fans, and everything he does contains at least some background level of bafflement for all involved.

There are multitudes in Stoneking's music. It's probably easiest to describe him as a "blues artist," but the term disguises what makes his music special. There's so much in there. A 1920s pre-war blues sound is key, but there's almost equal helpings of New Orleans jazz, jug band music, hokum, country and calypso, and he's lately brought in elements of jump jive, early rock 'n roll and gospel. His gift is that he brings them all together without anything sounding out of place. He finds the strands that connect all of these different styles and gently braids them together. It's what he values more than anything: "It's getting everything to unify, really. The music, the flow of it, keeping it moving, with no dead spots. Then I guess having the lyrics and the meaning that flows in that too, you know? Getting it all to knit together in a way that, if you didn't speak English maybe, you'd still be able to feel the melody, or the sounds of the words. If you did, then the meaning would also flow. That's sort of what I'm trying to do, I guess."

When so many on the blues scene are trying to sound "authentic"—whatever that is—it's that unity of sound that allows Stoneking to actually achieve it, and with apparent ease, too. Back in the day, no-one was "just" a blues musician, or a jazz or country musician, and so neither is he.
