Introducing a 2013 band to watch: Churchill

| 21 December 2012 | Reply


For Churchill, “Change” isn’t just the Denver quintet’s first hit, it’s also the force driving the group’s kaleidoscopic sound.

The Change EP (A&M/Octone) projects the band’s ambitious musical vision by deftly weaving together various styles into a dynamic hybrid that taps into each member’s strength. Founders Tim Bruns (guitar/vox) and Mike Morter (mandolin/guitar) deliver the freewheeling alt-country vibe; Tyler Rima (bass) and Joe Richmond (drums) inject some rock attitude; and Bethany Kelly (piano/vox) adds sophisticated classical flourishes.

That expansive approach to songwriting, combined with the band’s strong musical chemistry, allows Churchill to conjure an amazing range of sounds. Their high-energy and charismatic performances have earned rave reviews.

Airplay: Top-10 airplay at Triple-A and Top-20 at Alternative in markets that include San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Nashville and more.

Recent performances: Churchill has recently opened for Passion Pit, Alt-J, Of Monsters & Men, Fun., and Blondfire among others during recent promotional tour dates.
