CJ Stranger
Single Launch with Christine Jane

Join CJ Stranger as he launches his brand new album on our Golden Stage with support from Christine Jane.

CJ Stranger hones a unique sound and spirit for his new album Hey Stranger. Describing lead single ‘Strange One’ as a “stream-of-consciousness ramble of a day living in the inner-west,” CJ carves out contemporary Australian music akin to present day greats like Courtney Barnett, filled with occurrences like electric shocks, technology failing, having a tunnel dug under your house, and trying to pay rent. “After a strong coffee,” he notes, “things feel better.”

These days based in the Blue Mountains, Cameron James Henderson is constantly immersed in music – writing and performing his own songs, while moonlighting as a session player for bands such as Middle Kids. His 2016 debut album established his prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitar player, but it was a different kind of animal. CJ Stranger is an exaggerated and more nuanced side of Henderson, brought forth by exploring this new artistic persona.

Slinging a small-but-powerful arsenal of instruments, CJ Stranger crafts his distinctive sound using an old weathered resonator, a weird vintage organ, and his beloved purple guitar Frankenstein-ed out of discarded bits and pieces. This array of re-purposed musical antiques allows CJ Stranger to sculpt a vivid and honest landscape for his musings. Each song on Hey Stranger is a joy to listen to: expressively individual in telling their own story, yet perfectly nestled in the overall body of work.

Doors open at 2:30pm, performance starts at 10pm sharp
