CJ Stranger hones a unique sound and spirit for his new album, Hey Stranger (released 2020). 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 tryin’ 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.
