Critical praise for Cunningham:
“You need only experience Madison Cunningham once to become a believer in this Orange County songwriter”—Rita Houston
“expert chugs of electric guitar…for fans of Aimee Mann, Joni Mitchell and Jeff Buckley”
“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.”
The Orange County, CA native has performed as a duet partner with Punch Brothers’ Chris Thile on APM’s “Live From Here” and recently appeared in and helped score Sara Bareilles’ show Little Voice. Her list of champions continues to grow, including Harry Styles, John Mayer, Andrew Bird, Sara Watkins, Nickel Creek, the Milk Carton Kids’ Joey Ryan and Sara Bareilles. 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.”
