But who is CW Stoneking? Rumours of his past are rife – he had been a boxer, that he lived in a stolen car on the outskirts of town, that his body is covered in tattoos and he doesn’t cook. And then there’s the one about him being once seen in a very different incarnation – playing lead guitar with a heavy-rock band called The Berko Boys in a Sydney. Some said he looked more like a hillbilly David Lee Roth than a Delta bluesman, with long blond hair, a black skivvy, balaclava and a stuffed fox perched on his shoulder. His bandmates were dressed as a game-show host and rodeo clown. Or so they said.

Eb & Sparrow is a genre-defying, five-piece folk band that has been gaining attention across the country from city bars to folk clubs, festivals to house concerts. They have supported Rodriguez, Pokey LaFarge, Beth Orton, Anika Moa, The Warratahs, Delaney Davidson & Marlon Williams, Tami Neilson, and Aldous Harding.
Eb & Sparrow’s new debut album, released through Home Alone Music, is self-titled and self-assured. The 10 song collection is built on – but far exceeds – their three preceding EPs as it takes the band’s paradoxically woven nature to new heights. These songs are proudly soaring and grounded, dark and bright, dreamy and direct, country and Spanish, 1850s and 1950s, delicate and propulsive, all the while lamenting and laughing.
“We cast aching crescendoes of a time long gone, into a modern landscape” says singer and songwriter Ebony Lamb. Her impressionistic lyrics are imbued with a simple strength that comes from both heart and heartache. Her voice is unique – a cross between Cat Power and Gillian Welch and seems to resurrect an old-time soul into the here and now.
Lamb has worked tirelessly at her craft with a band that has grown organically around her. Lap-steel, trumpet and electric guitars swirl colourfully above solid and sensitive rhythm playing, moving effortlessly between a country shuffle, a Tex-Mex croon, and a hazy hooning workout.
Eb & Sparrow was recorded by award-winning Lyttelton producer and sound genius Ben Edwards (The Eastern, Delaney Davidson & Marlon Williams, Doprah, The Tiny Lies, Aldous Harding, The Unfaithful Ways, Luckless) at The Sitting Room studios.
“In these post-modem times, it’s easy to be suspicious of throwback folk music with vaudeville era aesthetics. Eb & Sparrow suggest not a yearning for an imagined brighter past, but a desire to participate in a simpler, more humanistic way of life.” – Martyn Pepperell, Vanguard Red Magazine.

I hope you can come and share this great opportunity with other drumming enthusiasts.
A month ago, I announced that The Rogue Stage will be hosting its last and final show. It was a decision I had to make, not because I had run out of steam, but because I had to take stock of the past 2 years and figure out where exactly it is I want to go.
I still haven’t figured that bit out yet, but all I can say for now is that by popular demand, The Rogue Stage will be hosting shows again in Rotorua!
The first show will be on Friday, the 26th of Sept. I haven’t thought about where it will be yet, but it will be a mix of musicians.
So far its:
Sweet Nadine Rae (Boston) and Levi Cooper (Nebraska)
Callum Gentleman (Auck)
A bit of poetry
A wild (super) short play
A silent movie, genre ‘wild west’
and maybe, just maybe a silent disco!
Where will all this fun be held at? Make a wise guess and you ll be in to win two free tickets.
