Since her celebrated band Purson played its final gig in December 2016, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rosalie Cunningham has been quietly reinventing her career and is emerging from her self-imposed “musical hibernation” as the visionary solo artist she always was.
Rosalie’s eponymous début album will be released by Esoteric Recordings on 5th July 2019. Her and her 4 piece band will then embark on a UK tour and perform live for a BBC 6Music session with Marc Riley. The self-produced album is the result of an extended period of reflection and will contain her strongest and most daring songwriting to date, ranging from a three minute Blackbird-esque nod to her creative hero Sir Paul McCartney, to an epic prog rock saga that will take the listener on the mother of all sonic journeys.
“Rosalie’s solo début transports you to a luscious (but pleasingly dark) fairground-come-cabret world, with tasty Beatles vibes aplenty.” Polly Glass, Classic Rock Magazine
“Rosalie Cunningham is a rock star… she exudes an effortless charisma and quiet confidence. The music she makes is meticulously but lovingly designed to blow minds.” Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer
“Cunningham’s vision is a golden ticket through the canyons of imagination, a peephole through the doors of perception, a celebration of surrender…” Mojo
