"Great soul artists are born, not made. Eddie Cunningham was born with the depth of heart, breadth of spirit, musicianship and vocal artistry to take his rightful - and very righteous - place among the greats. Now is his time.
Long known and respected for his award-winning talents as a singer, songwriter and producer of alt-country rock, acoustic ballads, power gospel hits and hillbilly trucker music, Cunningham has now allowed the innate soul artist in him to rise up and take center stage.
While all of his music is powerful, memorable and beautiful, the genre of soul provides the perfect vehicle for him to express his emotional and spiritual truth in new songs which, both musically and vocally, are his best to date." -Carole Roth
