Singer-songwriter Stoney recently spent his winter months in Austin, Tex., but wrote, recorded and produced a large batch of songs in small, dark rooms in Sheffield (U.K.) over the last few years. The British singer-songwriter recalls a younger David Bowie with the dapper swagger of The Kinks. He can easily switch between coy rock songs about nightlife and Elliott Smith-inspired bedroom folk.

From indie favorites to Latin alternative, obscure pop to conscious hip hop, Santa Monica-based KCRW programs a free-form mix of live performances, video and playlist archives.
