Charlie Cunningham is a gifted guitarist and singer from the UK, currently living in Oxford. Picked as one of NPR's 100 artists to see at SXSW 2017, these will be his first US performances. Over the course of three EPs and a newly released debut album (Lines - January 2017) Charlie's career has progressed from 2 years in Seville spent learning flamenco to over 14 million streams and 1.7 million monthly listeners on Spotify. With two sold out tours of Germany behind him along with a sold out gig at London's Union Chapel just a few weeks ago, Charlie returns to Europe in late March for his biggest headline tour to date. Praise for Lines: "Lines is an exquisite piece of work… this is some start” (Q). “Heartfelt and wise beyond its years, this album twists its way into your soul” (Mojo). “this is a soaring debut made to last that will resonate with people for years to come” (The Line Of Best Fit). "A sparkling debut imbued with undeniable innovation" (Clash).
