Madison Cunningham Performs NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

August 10, 2022

Two-time Grammy nominee Madison Cunningham recently stopped by NPR Music for perform songs from her forthcoming album for the beloved Tiny Desk.

Watch Cunningham’s Tiny Desk concert HERE, where she performs “All I’ve Ever Known,” “Hospital,” “In From Japan,” and “Life According To Raechel.”

“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 Music raves of the performance. Read more HERE.

The highly anticipated Revealer is set for release on September 9 via Verve Forecast. Pre-order/pre-save HERE. Check out the webstore for an exclusive signed splatter vinyl HERE.

Hospital” reached the #1 Most Added at both AAA and Non Comm radio. Watch/share the video HERE and watch the recently released new performance video HERE.

Revealer finds Cunningham working with Mike Elizondo (Twenty One Pilots, Gary Clark Jr.) as well as longtime producer and collaborator Tyler Chester and Tucker Martine (Neko Case, Sufjan Stevens).

“To me, ‘revealer’ is the binding theme of the album,” says Cunningham. “The hand that slowly chips away at the mirror in which you see yourself and the world and replaces it with the reflection that is most true.” The album is full of confessions, intimations and hard truths—a self-portrait of a young artist who is full of doubt and uncertainty yet bursting with exciting ideas about music and life.

“Hospital” follows previously released album track “Anywhere,” which Consequence raves “picks up where the whimsical, pop-infused folk of Wednesday—which was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 2022 Grammys—left off, complete with a theatrical and playful Francophone music video.”

Cunningham will be hitting the road on her fall headline “The Revealer Tour” kicking off this September with Bendigo Fletcher supporting. Tickets are on sale today HERE, and you can find a complete list of dates below.

The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter is fresh off the heels of a successful 2021 which found her opening for Harry Styles at his sold-out Madison Square Garden shows, writing an original song “Broken Harvest” for NPR Morning Edition’s Song Project and later performing the song on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

Cunningham’s list of champions continues to grow including Harry Styles, Remi Wolf, John Mayer, Alessia Cara and Sara Bareilles. The artist 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.
