On the heels of her success and recognition over the last few years, Madison Cunningham has kept the pedal to the metal. Her newest single “Anywhere” is an interesting intersection of Americana songwriting and intricate pop production methods. Almost avant-garde, the accompanying music video mirrors the song well. True and earnest, Cunningham’s sound is magnetic, wielding a sort of ‘can’t put my finger on it’ familiarity. As she explains, “‘Anywhere’ is a song about the inner dialogue you have with a person when they’re not there, saying all the things you would say if you could. And the combusting madness that comes with letting people’s opinion of you hold too much weight.”
Based in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old singer-songwriter has shared the stage with some heavy hitters following her breakthrough 2019 album, Who Are You Now. In 2021, Cunningham opened for the pop magnate Harry Styles at his Madison Square Garden shows. In 2020, her EP Wednesday was heralded as a tasteful follow-up to Who Are You Now, which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. Then in July 2021, Wednesday was rereleased with additional music, filling out a full-length record titled Wednesday (Extended Edition) that ultimately received a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. Clearly, Cunningham is hitting a powerful stride right now, with new music out right now and a long tour on the books for summer and early fall. Check out her evocative video for “Anywhere” below.
