“A stream-of-consciousness ramble of a day living in the inner-west”

Hooks and riffs abound with laidback verve and hypnotic charm on this new single from Blue Mountains, NSW resident CJ Stranger. That’s the nom de plume of songwriter and guitarist Cameron James Henderson and on this track he hits a sweet spot between The War On Drugs and Kurt Vile with a cool blend of his voice and the guitars that surge and swagger beautifully.

Expect an album called Hey Stranger in 2020 and you can catch Henderson playing these upcoming shows:

November 14 – LazyBones Lounge, Marrickville
w/ Gavin Bowles, Liam Gale (fb event)

November 21 – Django at Camelot, Marrickville
w/ Pat Tierney (fb event)

NEWS: Attend a panel discussion on live music in NSW

In response to the continued loss of live music venues in Sydney some proactive heads have got together and organised Two to Tango, a panel discussion on the topic, to be held at The Annandale Hotel tomorrow night (Wed 5th Sept) at 7pm.

Presented by The Annandale Hotel and Music NSW, the event comes in the wake of the (successful) struggle for The Annandale to stay afloat, the financial woes of The Sando and the passionate online debate around those venues and the live scene in general.

Entry is free and the discussion will be followed by a Q&A and live music from The Fabergettes, Little Lovers, and Annie Mckinnon. Anyone who is passionate about local live music in Sydney should get along and get involved in the important debate surrounding the livelihood of live musicians and the venues that host them.

Two to Tango panelists:

Jay Katz (musician/DJ) HOST
The Doctor (Triple J)
Matt Rule (The Annandale)
Brendan Maclean (musician, actor)
Urthboy (musician)
Siobhan Poynton (MusicNSW)
Dave Rennick (Dappled Cities)
Tony Gosden (Jam Music/ The Beresford)
