LISTEN: Charlie Cunningham - 'Sink In'

Since catching his set opening for Stornoway in a church in Oxford a few years back, and another church set at Bushstock Festival a few months later, I've been mesmerised by Charlie Cunningham. His songwriting and beautifully executed vocals set him apart, but his guitar skills, usually leaning towards flamenco in style, are incredible. His debut LP Lines (2017) features the singles Minimum and Lights Off, both stunning - it's a really wonderful piece of work.

About a month ago Charlie marked his return with brand new single Permanent Way, which he has followed up with brand new track Sink In while in the midst of a US tour supporting RY X. Produced alongside Sam Scott and Duncan Tootil, the new track features the White Brothers - Hugo, Felix & Will of The Maccabees (!!) - on keys, electric guitar and bass respectively. Take a listen below...

With a one-off show at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall on June 12th, the new track comes with news of a string of tour dates across Europe and the UK later in the year. UK dates are as follows: Redgrave Theatre, Bristol (2nd November); City Varieties Music Hall, Leeds (3rd); Sage, Gateshead (4th); RNCM Concert Hall, Manchester (6th); Holywell Music Room, Oxford (7th) and The Old Market, Brighton (8th.) Full dates and ticket info are on Charlie's site here!
