Charming – Madison Cunningham opening for Punch Brothers at the Symphony Center (September 7, 2018)

Madison Cunningham is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles. She says she has a love/hate relationship with the city. “You may not recognize the local references in this next song” she warns. During the song, she mentions taking the 5, and she comments mid song “There it is!”. This self-comment throws her off and then she flubs the next lyrics. However, she quickly recovers with style. It’s a charming display that wins over the audience.

To set up her closing song, she says she wrote it for her fiancé. The crowd responds, “awwww”. She goes on to sing “Something to Believe In”. It’s a beautiful song that sounds absolutely excellent in the acoustically grand Symphony Center. Her vocal talent and guitar chops point to a bright future for this young artist.
