Nick Cunningham - Apr 09 - Black Bear Lodge

Nick Cunningham is originally from a small coastal farming region on the west coast of South Australia. Before starting his life as a musician he was a talented athlete and Australian rules football player, making a living as a builder working in Aboriginal communities throughout remote reaches of Australia.

In 2015 Nick began busking regularly on the streets of the iconic Australian surf and tourist town Byron Bay, promoting his debut EP “Letters”. It was here that he began to establish himself as a songwriter and capture the imagination and hearts of listeners. Luckily enough, Nick met actor Kellan Lutz while performing on the streets in late 2016 and a friendship was formed. With backing from the actor and with supportive and loyal fans, Nick was able to take the opportunity to focus his energy on making his second studio EP “In Between”.

Since releasing his debut EP in 2015 Nick has regularly toured Australia performing widely to sold out audiences. In 2017 he made his first appearance in New Zealand performing in Auckland while touring his second EP. In 2019 Nick was the winner of the Falls Festival Foster a band completion, earning his place on stage at the highly regarded music and arts event. He has also performed at Splendour in the Grass and the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival as well as appearing online for Sofar Sounds and Tram sessions.
