Denver-based alt-folk band Churchill blowing up.
They released their Change EP mid-2012 to critical acclaim, the single “Change” has been catching fire at the radio. They’re also heading into the studio with Ryan Tedder and Brendan O’Brien for a Spring 2013 A&M/Octone release and just launched a Daytrotter session. Finally they’ve announced an upcoming support tour with Phillip Phillips and will be at SXSW.
Churchill began as singer/songwriter Tim Bruns and musician friend Michael Morter teamed up with a passion to create relevant music rooted in acoustic instruments, redemptive lyrics and refreshingly good melodies.
This six piece, indie-folk band was fully formed after the addition of cello, piano, bass and drums adding to the already listenable guitar-mandolin duo.
Since their debut performance in May 2009, Churchill has been gaining momentum and turning heads in Denver. With compelling and emotive lead vocals, a noticeable creative energy on stage, powerful harmonies and satisfyingly distinct instrumentation the band has won praise from fans and critics alike.
“With a powerful drum/bass foundation underneath them, Churchill adds acoustic guitar, keyboard, mandolin and cello to create a sound with elements of rock, folk, alternative and ‘new-grass,’ in a combination you have likely never heard, but will not likely forget once you do,” Jeff McQuilkin, Examiner.
