“Churchill, an ex-busker, had a booming voice, melody-laced when needed, and busted out some guitar chords and finger-tapping that would have made Steve Vai’s jaw drop.” – Exclaim! Magazine
Kim Churchill has already achieved some incredible things in his short time as a professional musician. He’s recognised as much internationally as he is in Australia, having performed headline shows, festivals and supports alike all over the planet. Notable performances include Falls Festival, Billy Bragg (North America & Europe), Leo Kottke, Montreal Jazz, Telluride Blues, Glastonbury and a plethora of festivals.
Since the inception of his career, Kim has been acknowledged as a formidable force to be reckoned with. In the early sun-drenched days of 2009, Kim traversed Australia in a campervan, undertaking a musical journey to share and connect with the Australian musical landscape.
Known for his magnetic, dynamic stage presence, Kim unites lyrical artistry with fierce vocals; he is a sonic architect – using his guitar to create landscapes, which animate his lyrics.
2014 saw Kim release his fourth studio recording Silence/Win, a pre-eminent collection demonstrating a maturity and depth of song writing unparalleled by his previous works. The 2015 single Window to The Sky became an anthem for summer adventures and an instant festival favourite during Churchill’s continued touring both in Australia and abroad, notably selling out headline shows as well as supporting Nahko and the Medicine people throughout Europe and the UK. Window To The Sky was also remixed by French producer The Avener (best known for his ARIA top ten single Fade Out Lines), and has over 1 million views online.
Drawing inspiration from his time in Europe and sojourns to Sri Lanka and Canada – Kim is currently putting the final touches on his next record – due for release in early 2017.
