Charlie Cunningham has announced his return with the release of a brand new single ‘Permanent Way’. Produced by Sam Scott & Duncan Tootill, ‘Permanent Way’ is the first new material from the British guitarist since the release of debut album ‘Lines’ in 2017 and is a nod to more that we can expect from him in 2019. ‘Permanent Way’ finds Charlie embellishing his sound with subtly arranged synths and an upbeat tempo, whilst still allowing enough space within the arrangement for his distinctive vocals to echo and captivate.
Alongside this new release, Charlie Cunningham will make a return to the live stage with two intimate sold out shows this month – Monday 26th Feb @ Omeara in London and Wednesday 28th Feb @ Berlin Silent Green – before embarking on a more extensive tour of North America supporting RY X throughout March & April.
He will then return to the UK for a newly announced headline show at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall (Southbank) on Weds 12th June.
Charlie Cunningham released his debut album, ‘Lines’ in 2017 (Dumont Dumont) to widespread acclaim from both international listeners and critics. The album brought together his unique combination of deft nylon stringed guitar playing with dramatic dynamics, creating distinctive, spectral melodies.
A move to Seville to hone his guitar technique acted as a catalyst to Cunningham’s creativity. Taking the percussive and rhythmic qualities he developed there, he began to thread his individual approach together. His songs have received airplay across BBC 6 Music and support from Huw Stephens & Phil Taggart at Radio 1 whilst on Spotify, the versatility of his songs have lead to millions of monthly plays.
