With Who Are You Now, Madison Cunningham traces her own path from SoCal teenager to independent adult, setting that paradigm-shifting transition to a soundtrack of honest, heartfelt music. It’s a revised spin on the singer-songwriter format, as well as a jolt of electric energy in a genre often ruled by acoustic instruments. Thanks to Cunningham s autobiographical wiring. Who Are You Now also answers the question posed by the album’s title. Introducing a young musician who’s learned to balance the fresh with the familiar.

Is this really 2019? If so, then Madison Cunningham must have been frozen in cryosleep in the mid-seventies and brought back to life four decades later. With Who Are You Now, this 22-year-old Californian releases a debut album of surprising mastery and maturity. While influenced by her predecessors Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Fiona Apple and even Feist, Cunningham never loses the vision of her own songs and personal sound. Her retro sound is therefore balanced on this record with a resolute timelessness. Brought up in a family of five girls, she picked up her first guitar when she was 7 and sang in church with her family at 12. She listened to other artists but mostly wrote and composed her own songs. It’s difficult to not be blown away by her lyricism; the tormented soul of a wandering old lady on an unstable path of sheer emotion. How many lives has this young musician who has opened shows the likes of the Punch Brothers, Andrew Bird, Amos Lee, Iron & Wine and even Calexico lived? With disillusioned, exacting confidence, an unforgiving feminist cry, Madison Cunningham is a folk-rock sovereign here to last. A true revelation. – Marc Zisman
