Stung (1972–) is a talented flautist and Sting impersonator. Hailing originally from Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand he now manages the Camp Davey compound.

He released two albums on Davey Dreamnation's record label, DNRC Records, the first of which was entitled Dream of the Blue Pipe Cleaners. The follow-up, Desert Boot Nose, was released in 2011 to overwhelming critical disdain. A third album, Nothing Like the Stung, was never released.

Rumours of Stung's recent demise have been slightly exaggerated, although he has been involved in at least one fracas involving his seeing-eye pony which has left him permanently seething.

Stung divides his time between composing soaring and uplifting car commercial themes and vocal coaching. His influence on Davey Dreamnation's singing career has been noticeable and can be heard on Dreamnation's unreleased collection of rare instrumentals. Stung also acts as a vocal coach and mentor for Clint Bo Dean, one of DNRC Records's most troubled stars. His favourite colour is yellow and he was born in the year of the Bee.

According to his Geocities website, Stung is 'not available for interviews'.
