Kim Churchill Extends National Tour

Acclaimed singer/songwriter will return home to Australia this January, kicking his summer touroff with special guest on January 5th, 2013 at Thornbury Theatre in Melbourne.

Kim is currently headlining a 26-date national tour of Canada that started less than a week after dates with The Beardsand The Snowdropperswith his Australian tour covering five states through January and February.

is acknowledged for his guitar talents with a unique technique and explosive style shaped by intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with a 24 inch Kick drum, cascading harmonica melodies, and soulful voice.

Kim’s musical journey began in 2009 busking and traveling Australia in a campervan to share his music with friends and strangers alike. Since then, he has won the National Youth Folk Artist of the Year award in 2009, been selected from hundreds by the Byron Bay Bluesfest Busker competition in 2010, and has played the main stage each year since then before artists like Bob Dylan, Michael Franti or Ben Harper. 2012 saw Kim touring relentlessly worldwide, and he will have played over 300 shows by the end of this year!

His second album Detail of Distance, the debut release on Indica Australia, was recorded in Vancouver Canada and produced by Todd Simko. The eleven tracks showcase a maturing artist whose traditional folk/blues edge is developing with a rockier edge, an aspect clearly highlighted by the album’s first single Season’s Grind.
