...a little time
Recorded in 1999 in Nashville/TN, "live in the Studio" with some of Nashville's best...
"...a little time" is the culmination of two solid years of creative work in Nashville. This 1999 release contains several of Tom's stand-out songs, including "Best Work in My Sleep," "Who's Countin' - I Am" and "The Present." In the style of John Hiatt's "Bring the Family," it was recorded "live in the studio" with some of Nashville's best, including Larry Chaney (Edwin McCain), who also contributed to "What If?"
Singer-songwriter Tom Cunningham divides his time between Nashville and Europe. He grew up in Massachussetts, but has lived in Berlin, Germany, since the 70's, with a list of solid achievements there to his credit: 6 solo albums, dozens of chart successes as a songwriter, and a gold album as a producer for his work with the East German band "City".
Tom admits to having caught "the Nashville songwriting bug" durung his sojourn in Music City, and has also recorded two albums there: 1999's "...a little time," an "Americana"-tinged live-in-the-studio effort with some of Nashville's top "pickers," and "Denn Du Bist da," (2000) Tom's first album written and sung entirely in the German language.
In addition to his concerts as a solo artist and with his band, Tom began hosting a singer-songwriter live showcase in Germany, Songwriters-in-the-Round, over four years ago. In this time the show has expanded from the original Berlin venues to Munich and Hamburg, Germany as well as several other cities and towns as Songwriters-in-the-Round-on-Tour. The show has delighted audiences and given countless singer-songwriters, both "old pros" and newcomers, the encouragement of an excellent performance forum. The Berliner Morgenpost newspaper credits Tom Cunningham with "reinvigorating the nearly moribund Berlin songwriting scene."
And you can catch him solo or with band in concert at festivals and in clubs in Europe as well as in the USA (gigs are listed on www.tom-cunningham.com).
