MADISON CUNNINGHAM’S “LAST BOAT TO FREEDOM” PREMIERES AT BILLBOARD

ON 34-CITY NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH PUNCH BROTHERS

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

“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

“a star is born” –The Christian Science Monitor

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, Madison 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,” Madison 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.”
