TOUR DATES WITH MANDY MOORE, CALEXICO AND IRON & WINE

PLAYING TWO SHOWS AT LE POISSON ROUGE IN NEW YORK JANUARY 28 + 29

"You need only experience Madison Cunningham once to become a believer in this Orange County songwriter" —Rita Houston

“Poised and precise in her singing and ace guitar playing… Madison Cunningham might not conjure a comparison to Fiona Apple on first listen, but…with [her] wonderfully tangled imagery and cutting self-awareness, shows she’s an heir to that queen’s powerful throne.” –NPR Music

“A voice that was reminiscent of Stevie Nicks...  her set was sweet and filled with the energy that only comes from a California artist. ” –WXPN's "The Key"

“expert chugs of electric guitar... for fans of Aimee Mann, Joni Mitchell and Jeff Buckley. ” –Rolling Stone Country

Today, Madison Cunningham shares new b-side track “No One Else To Blame;” listen HERE. “During our time recording Who Are You Now at Sonic Ranch, we left with a couple songs more than we needed,” Cunningham explains, “Some of which I was very conflicted didn’t make the record but seemed evident that they were for a different time and place. Now the time and place is today.”

Cunningham’s debut LP Who Are You Now has been nominated for “Best Americana Album” by the Recording Academy at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards. Ahead of the GRAMMY Awards, she will be performing at the Americana Association’s Willie Nelson Tribute Night.

She will be supporting Mandy Moore on her 2020 U.S. tour. You can find a complete list of dates below and tickets HERE. On January 28 and 29, Cunningham will be performing two nights at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge, with the second show added due to popular demand.

NPR’s All Songs Considered featured “Something To Believe In,” and Bob Boilen says, “I want you to stop what you’re doing and listen to these words from Madison Cunningham.” Listen HERE.

“Writing this record really forced me to take an honest look at where I came from, what my dreams and fear were, and who I was becoming as a result,” Cunningham says of Who Are You Now. The album was recorded at Sonic Ranch studio in El Paso with producer and multi-instrumentalist Tyler Chester, who has also worked with artists such as Jackson Browne, Blake Mills and Andrew Bird.

The Orange County, CA native has performed as a duet partner with Punch Brothers’ Chris Thile on APM’s “Live From Here” and her list of champions has continued to grow, including Andrew Bird, Sara Watkins, Nickle Creek and the Milk Carton Kids’ Joey Ryan.

Cunningham first picked up a guitar at age seven, and by age twelve was singing and performing alongside her five siblings in church. By the age of fifteen, Cunningham realized songwriting was a passion she wanted to pursue, citing Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan as key inspirations. “It’d always been a hobby before, but around then, I realized I wanted to make it a religious practice,” she says. “I thought if I could capture some of their same spirit ever in my life, I’d have to work hard and every day.”
