 “a new spin on West Coast folk-rock,
with classical tendencies, electric guitars,
jazz-school chord changes and alt-rock
strut all livingunder the same roof.”

“A voice that was reminiscent of
Stevie Nicks… her set was sweet and
filled with the energy that only comes
from a California artist. ”

“expert chugs of electric guitar…
for fans ofAimee Mann, Joni Mitchell
and Jeff Buckley. ”
“a star is born”
21-year-old singer-songwriter Madison Cunningham’s new track “Last Boat To Freedom” is premiering now at Billboard. The track debuts alongside an exclusive interview with Cunningham. Read Billboard’s exclusive interview with Cunningham and listen/share the track HERE.
Cunningham is currently in the midst of her tour supporting Punch Brothers for the entirety of their 34-stop tour across North America. See below for a complete list of remaining dates.
Cunningham recently signed to Verve Forecast and is currently recording her debut full-length LP. She has previously performed as a duet partner with Punch Brothers’Chris Thile on APM’s Live From Here”, and is a regular performer on the show.Her new music follows the release of last year’s debut EP, Love, Lose, Remember.
The Orange County, CA-native 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.”
