Charlie Cunningham

Asset 2

Charlie Cunningham may not intentionally have meant the title track of his most recent album ‘Permanent Way’ to resemble a manifesto for personal and creative freedom, but the words ‘You can do what you want / But I’m making my own way in,’ speaks volumes for the way he’s gone about his music.

Charlie has relentlessly pursued his art at the expense of more potentially stable vocations, including moving to the flamenco stronghold of southern Spain for over two years.

Once back in Britain, a string of EPs quickly won over support from Spotify, before the increasingly dexterous instrumental and songwriting craft behind his 2017 album debut Lines illuminated – rather than contained – the man’s intimate, raw, haunting sound, etched by Charlie’s gorgeously expressive vocal and the dramatic thrum of his nylon-stringed guitar.
