Another huge announcement from Fusion Boutique Presents with KIM CHURCHILL for an intimate concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains as part of his 'Bright Night Sessions' tour.
Tickets are strictly limited and we advise booking early to avoid disappointment!

Australian folk, rock, and blues singer, songwriter Kim Churchill picked up his first guitar when he was 4 years old when his father promised him a guitar if he did well in school. He was trained in classical guitar for ten years. He accompanies his guitar with blues harp (harmonica), stomp box, drums, and percussion instruments. He also plays lapsteel and tambourine.

Churchill tours extensively and has become a venue and music festival favourite.

"Opening on this night was the young, barefooted Aussie, Kim Churchill. Churchill made the most of an acoustic guitar, kick drum, pedals and a harmonica. Creating a sound I can only describe as psychedelic whale music, ocean-side blues or countrified Nick Drake. Kim Churchill. Remember that name. He’s going to impress a whole mess of people on this tour" - Vancouver Weekly

“No need to run when the sun is coming.” A traveller as much as an artist, Kim Churchill has lived on the road for years, but it was no longer enough just to pass through; for Kim it was time to show that world in his songs. After The Sun, the warm, loping first single from a new project where each song taps into the people and environments of some of his favourite parts of the world, is Kim showing the value of a new way of thinking, of writing … of living. “I now understand the effect that the whole process of travelling has on the way I write songs and the way I create,” he says, explaining that he travelled this time intending to experience “emotional responses to a constantly changing environment” and allow that to “seep into my creative process, which has been the most liberating part of the last year of writing.”

‘After the Sun’ is the first track from the Berlin EP of this project, finished and recorded in the German capital with the experienced house and hip-hop producer Vincent Kottkamp. “Even the decision to work with Vince was kind of playful,” Kim reveals, “to not try so hard, just go in, have fun, make the music, don’t get anxious if he throws in an electronic sound that you feel is not you. Just give room to exist and have fun.”

While Berlin is a city known for its buildings, culture and nightlife, it was the areas where the ‘built’ and ‘natural’ sides of Berlin collide and connect that drove the song. “It started out as a way to contrast the natural and the man-made, but as we started searching the city and finding things, we noticed that there were so many wonderful examples of nature jumping into buildings, re-taking over what it originally owned,” Kim explains.

Just as the lyrics of ‘After the Sun’ play with the idea that it’s a futile exercise to try and chase the sun, Kim saw the way nature swallowed disused buildings, art and colour and life finding their way back into these sterile, concrete structures. “That’s really inspiring for me,” Kim says, “that the beautiful creative side to our DNA, that we just don’t understand, finds a way to come out again and again.” After the Sun was released world-wide on February 8, 2019.
