Charlie Cunningham / Releases New Single Featuring The Maccabees
Having heralded his return with the song ‘Permanent Way’ and a sold-out show at London’s Omeara, Charlie Cunningham marks the announcement of a UK & European headline tour in October with the unveiling of a second new track ‘Sink In’.
What Charlie describes as “the slightly ominous guitar part” of ‘Sink In’ inspired a tale of ambiguous persuasion. ‘Sink In’ was produced alongside Sam Scott and Duncan Tootil and features the White Brothers – better known as Hugo, Felix & Will from The Maccabees on keyboards, electric guitar and bass respectively.

As hinted at on ‘Permanent Way’ – released Feb 12th, currently standing at over 1 million streams and counting – Cunningham has enriched his new material with boosted colours and dynamics while retaining the essence of the man’s achingly personal appeal. 'Sink In’ is dusty driving music mining that rich seam of Flamenco guitar that runs through much of Charlie Cunningham’s music.
Cunningham is currently on an extensive tour of the US – full listings included below – ahead of a one-off headlining show at Queen Elizabeth Hall at London's Southbank Centre on June 12th. Along with his band Cunningham takes to the road again in October for dates across Europe ahead of a headlining UK tour in November. Tickets are available from Charlie’s official website.

Charlie Cunningham released his debut album, ‘Lines' in 2017 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 Radio 1 whilst on Spotify, the versatility of his songs have led to millions of monthly plays.
