Churchill’s “Change”: Video premiere (today), Esquire & Billboard quotes, Daytrotter session booking & more…

| 25 January 2013 | Reply


Churchill is a Denver-based indie folk-rock band formed in 2008 by Tim Burns (guitar/vox) and Mike Morter (mandolin/guitar). They expanded to include Bethany Kelly (piano/vox), Joe Richmond (drums), and Tyler Rima (bass) in 2009 before releasing their debut LP Happy Sad in 2011, and signed to A&M/Octone in 2012.

The lead single & title-track from their 2012 Change EP is now top-15 at Alternative radio and #6 at Triple-A, as the band continues to tour and preps for the release of their forthcoming new album in Spring 2013.

“Change” is the sort of brilliantly simple chunk of alternative rock that becomes frozen in a listener’s memory after a single spin.” “…Mike Morter’s mandolin whittling is the song’s real prize, creating a conversation with Kelly’s voice by answering her cries with unexpected pizzazz.”

Music Artists to Watch in 2013: “Because something is in the water in Denver, yet this year’s Lumineers don’t actually sound much like The Lumineers. And because this might just be the best pop-radio hit to feature mandolin since “Losing My Religion.”
