Kim Churchill Plays for Fernie audiences this weekend

Kim Churchill has been living and breathing guitar for over a decade. When he plays you can hear the dedication and countless hours of rehearsal and you can’t help but have an appreciation for his talent. When you find out he’s only 20, it puts him in an entirely other league.

Kim Churchill is an acoustic virtuoso dynamo. He performs at The Northern in Fernie on Saturday September 10.

Kim Churchill has been living and breathing guitar for over a decade. When he plays you can hear the dedication and countless hours of rehearsal and you can’t help but have an appreciation for his talent. When you find out he’s only 20, it puts him in an entirely other league.

His flawless guitar technique and his lyrical outlook surpass his age and these skills have allowed his career to blossom. As he continues to launch his career in music, dedication is another characteristic you will not find him lacking.

“As a young artist, now’s the time for me to be busy” Kim enthuses. “You just have to tour your arse off, record heaps and keep pushing every way you can. It’s been a hectic couple of years but its also been lots of fun.”

Kim Churchill’s style is unique and explosive, with intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with an earthy stomp box, powerful harmonica melodies and soulful voice. Though his playing is often complex, his songs have an easy, natural flow that certainly reflect the peace of mind that rolling waves and a rising sun possess. Kim Churchill is a live spectacle and a true virtuoso, but unlike so many others who could be labeled as such, he transmits a vibe of genuine modesty. Perhaps it’s his nomadic life on the road or probably his passion for surfing that keeps him grounded.

Kim will be performing in Fernie at The Northern this Saturday September 10th.
