Charlie Cunningham Shares New Video ‘Water Tower’- North American Fall Tour

Charlie Cunningham Shares New Video ‘Water Tower’ North American Fall Tour 

New Album Frame Out Now

“A hushed and plaintive Neil Young-like beauty.” – Sunday Times Culture
 
“His beatific, acoustic-led sound is endlessly melodic, his bittersweet inflections speaking of matters of the heart.” – Clash

“He has written a body of intimate, largely acoustic songs, quiet and melodic, which carve out space in time. Add in his intricate finger-picked guitar, and the results are arresting.” –  WNYC New Sounds

“You can detect that Spanish warmth in his playing and writing, but its tempered by a quiet, gentle delivery, comparable to UK folk icon Nick Drake, or contemporaries like Ben Howard.” – Guitar World

‘’…lush instrumentation…knows how to make something delicate brilliant.’’ – 8/10 Line Of Best Fit

August 17, 2023 New York, NY – Charlie Cunningham shares the new video for ‘Water Tower.’ The track is from his third full length album Frame released earlier this year. 

In early 2020 Charlie moved to the countryside fifty miles out of London to the small village of Mursley and he could see the Mursley water tower from his new house. The song and accompanying video is connected with the view from the window and that time period of introspection and isolation when Frame was written. Charlie wanted to return to this special place with longtime visual collaborator Sam Hamper directing. Charlie will be touring in support of Frame across North America in October and November.

Watch Water Tower on YouTube:

‘Frame’ showcases another sophisticated sonic evolution for Charlie, who in collaboration with producer Sam Hudson Scott, creates the fragility, power and tension found in timeless songwriting, reanimated through a modern lens with an album of lush, delicate songs brimming with poised references to art rock, golden era jazz, and neoclassical composition – channelling Charlie’s more direct influences in John MartynNina Simone and Paul Simon – whilst fusing in his love of ambient artists Brian Eno and Harold Budd.
 
Lyrically ‘Frame’ explores the major themes of the human condition: heartbreak, spirituality, grief and climate anxiety; universally relatable emotions that Charlie delivers with a depth of feeling and from the nuance of his own personal observations and experiences, making ‘Frame’ Charlie’s most accomplished work to date.

 ‘Frame’ is released on a super limited edition Clear Smoky Vinyl and CD; Buy HERE.

Charlie was recently in the states playing two sold out solo shows in Los Angeles and New York. He also stopped by WNYC’s New Sounds to chat with John Schaefer and perform three songs. North American tour dates with a full band are on sale now.

Charlie’s story is as fascinating as his music. Despite his dyslexia making it near impossible for him to read music, Charlie earned a music degree, but by his mid-twenties was working a variety of odd jobs while writing songs in his free time. He took the unconventional decision to move to Seville, where he immersed himself in flamenco music – his initial three-month visit eventually turning into a three-year stay. Returning to the UK, he made a modest living playing covers in bars in London and Oxford before adding his own compositions to the mix – the first step towards a career which has seen him become a truly under-the-radar success story; headlining iconic venues in the UK & Europe and connecting with a global fanbase, leading to over 500 million streams to date.

 
Before heading to North America Charlie will play a headline UK tour, which begins with a sold-out show at London’s Lafayette on April 11th, the first of two shows at the venue. Charlie then heads to Europe where he plays several prestigious venues with very limited tickets available for his shows in Dublin, Vienna, Cologne and Amsterdam.
