Info for For The Sake Of The Rhyme
At 20 years old, Madison Cunningham has already established herself as a dazzling and gifted singer-songwriter. Her EP, Love, Lose, Remember, came out in 2017. A regular musician on this season of Live from Here, Madison recently took some time to tell us a bit about her childhood, writing process, and some of the songs and artists that inspire her.
You debuted this otherworldly, gorgeous new song on the show in mid-January called “Beauty Into Clichés.” Can you talk about its inspiration? It’s breathtaking.
There’s some songs that are like blocks. Piece by piece you build them. Sometimes laboriously. Maybe you ﬁnd a new block to add to the stack every other day. And then there’s songs that are already made houses and you just get to walk through the door. I was driving to Walmart in Orange County, which I still can’t remember why I was going there, and the ﬁrst couple lines of verse one popped into my head. (It’s safe to say my Honda is responsible for ﬁnishing most of my songs). When I got home I sat down at my parents’ upright piano and it was like I was copying a song that was already written. The meaning became clear to me later on. I get spooked by songs like this when they come around because I try to go back and reverse the steps to ﬁnishing it and it’s like trying to remember a dream you had the night before. Hopefully one day I’ll get to meet the spirit who wrote it.
Madison Cunningham, vocals, guitar
Orange County, CA native, Madison Cunningham, possesses a keen understanding of songcraft that is perplexing for someone who’s just twenty years old. With an ear for melody that is reminiscent of early Joni Mitchell and approach to guitar and vocals that isn’t far off from long past heroes of Jeff Buckley or Nick Drake, Madison exhibits a unique ability to keep the listener on the edge as they explore her debut EP, Love, Lose, Remember. The oldest of five daughters, Madison picked up a guitar at the age of seven and was singing with her sisters and family in church by the age of 12. It was a happenstance meeting with producer Tyler Chester (Blake Mills, Sara Watkins) four years ago that helped Madison start to develop her approach as a songwriter. Released in early 2017, Love, Lose, Remember, showcases Madison’s ability as a songwriter and arranger with the lyrical content of someone who has lived twice the life of this young artist.
