Welcoming C.W. Stoneking to the Ground Control Touring Roster

Posted 01/13/2016

We are very pleased to announce the addition of Australian blues rock artist, C.W. Stoneking, to the Ground Control Touring roster.

C.W. Stoneking is the embodiment of what some would say is a bygone era of music. From his rasping jungle-rock-blues, to his well-oiled locks, and his familiar all white clothing ensemble, he has converted fans across the world to his unique style.

A first generation Australian of American-descent, C.W. Stoneking was born in the top end of Australia’s Northern Territory and spent his childhood growing up in Central Australia, Sydney and rural Victoria. He has travelled the world from Egypt to New Orleans (where he worked as a hoodoo doctor’s assistant) to Trinidad, where he learned about Calypso music. He has lived in isolated farmhouses working as a handyman, and been involved in and survived a shipwreck, spending time in Africa, and touring internationally as a recording artist.

C.W. Stoneking’s latest album, Gon’ Boogaloo, will be re-released in the U.S. on King Hokum Records this May. Keep your eyes on his artist page for news and upcoming dates.
