Kim Churchill prepares to launch his new studio album to coincide with a return visit to the UK

kim churchillHaving completed a string of European dates as the hand-picked support act on Billy Bragg’s epic Tooth and Nail tour, and headlining his own show at London’s Borderline, Australian musical nomad Kim Churchill prepares to launch his new studio album in April to coincide with a return visit to the UK.

Some Days the Rain May Fall (from the album Silence / Win) is a thoughtful ethereal piece, hauntingly in delivery but yet still provocative and stirring.  We have the track featured for your listening pleasure below…

The new album will be Kim’s his first UK release, produced by Warne Livesey (Midnight Oil, The The, Matthew Good). The project, recorded in a remote rural village on Vancouver Island, Canada, is the first time Kim has entrusted a producer with holding the creative reigns, “Paradoxically, by relinquishing control to someone else I think this record has a clarity and has really captured who I am in a way I was unable to achieve on my own.”

The month spent recording the album was also the first time in 5 years that Kim had a permanent roof over his head – the busker and surfer, who left home aged 17, preferring to travel and live in customised vans.  Kim won the 2009 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busker competition and he has returned annually to this festival’s main stage. Kim’s dynamic live performance focuses on his deft guitar-work while simultaneously playing bass drum, percussion, tambourine, harmonica and vocals.

Kim, a multi-instrumentalist, has already accomplished impressive feats in his short time as a professional musician. Kim is recognised as much internationally as he is in his homeland, having performed headline shows, festivals and supports alike all over the planet. As well as opening for Billy Bragg & Michael Franti, notable performances include Montreal Jazz, Telluride Blues, SXSW, and a plethora of festivals including Byron Bay Blues Festival.

“I think I find the most solace in not knowing where I am going and not knowing how I am going to get there. That way each moment contains the seed of mystery and the excitement of receiving exactly what a person with no expectations expects; nothing. And nothing is the perfect canvas for anything.”

Wayward Daughter – The official biography of Eliza Carthy…

Since appearing at the Vancouver Folk Festival aged just thirteen, Eliza has sung and played across the globe, recording critically acclaimed albums – including Red Rice and Anglicana, which were both nominated for the Mercury Music Prize – and collaborating with a whole host of movers and shakers including Paul Weller, Cerys Matthews, Richard and Teddy Thompson, Billy Bragg, Stewart Lee and Patrick Wolf, amongst many, many others.

She is the Wayward Daughter of Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, giants of the British folk scene. In this official biography, released on May 9 courtesy of Soundcheck Books, Sophie Parkes discovers how Eliza came to inherit the family talent and continue the family trade: reinterpreting, reimagining and renovating English traditional music, and grounding it very much in a modern day experience.
