These are Cunningham’s third and fourth Grammy nominations, having previously earned nods for Best Folk Album for Wednesday (Extended Edition) and Best Americana Album for Who Are You Now.

Critical acclaim for Revealer

[of “Our Rebellion”] “a perpetual-motion weave of deftly picked guitar lines in a brisk 7/4 meter, stacking up and realigning, jabbing and easing off, sometimes running backward, as the crafty wrangling goes on.”—New York Times

“The clear leader of her band of crack, Southern California musicians…she was also our audacious guide, steering us toward exploration with the shrewd parts she played on three different guitars over the course of four songs.”—NPR Tiny Desk

“She is such a subtly kickass guitarist, and this record contains one of the most beautiful, tear-jerking ballads I've heard in a really, really long time called ‘Life According To Raechel’”—NPR

“Her songs feel like perfectly and eccentrically built cupboards, housing everything just so inside different nooks, making well-organized space for the shape of every word and synth swell. From the melodies and arrangements to the lyrics, it is clear that this LP is in the most vulnerable space, one of self-consciousness coupled with a lot of emotion in every possible direction.”— Paste Magazine

Last month, Cunningham released a version of “Life According to Raechel” in collaboration with genre-bending Miami orchestra Nu Deco Ensemble. Watch the stunning performance HERE.

Cunningham recently teamed up with JHS Pedals for her own exclusive pedal, Artificial Blonde. The Artificial Blonde is a very simplistic approach to Madison’s signature sound: a never off, always on, slightly 3D pitch vibrato sound. Watch her chat about what’s on her pedalboard HERE.

She just finished her successful U.S. headline “The Revealer Tour” and is now gearing up to embark on her nearly sold-out EU/UK tour including stops in Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid and more. Tickets HERE.
