“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 single “Location” is out today; listen HERE. The track is joined by a stripped-down solo performance video; watch HERE. Cunningham is currently recording her debut LP, which is set for release next year via Verve Forecast.

Cunningham 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. This past summer, she was the sole opener for the entirety of the Punch Brothers’ 34-stop North American tour. Her forthcoming full-length album follows the release of last year’s 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.”
