Local singer/songwriter Luke Cunningham was recently chosen to participate in the Lester Sill Songwriters Workshop in Los Angeles. Hosted by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), the workshop features 14 songwriters from across the country, and the whole thing is aimed at helping them establish industry contacts and learn the ropes of the music biz. But don't worry, La La Land isn't going to snatch up Cunningham just yet. "I'm at my best when I'm here, both creatively and personally," the singer says about his Lowcountry home. Currently, Cunningham and his band — Micah Nichols (guitar), Christian Wood (bass), and Ben Scott (drums) — will join Mississippi's Charlie Mars for a run of upcoming shows, including a gig at the Pour House on Thurs. Oct. 18, 9 p.m.. The two musicians connected a while back, and when Mars e-mailed him out of the blue and proposed doing a few shows together, Cunningham jumped at the chance. Cunningham and his band will play songs from his most recent release Heart Pressure, as well as two new tracks from a country record he's got in the works. Charlie Mars has been busy supporting Citizen Cope and appearing on VH1's Morning Buzz.
