Cowichan Performing Arts Centre Cabaret Series
The third season of the Cabaret Series opens with Aussie folk musician Kim Churchill. We'll transform our stage into the coolest place to catch live music in our speakeasy-style venue with on-stage seating. Seating is limited.
Kim Churchill’s style is explosive, with intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with an earthy stomp box, powerful harmonica melodies and soulful voice. His songwriting reflects his coastal lifestyle – growing up on the East Coast of Australia, with the surf at his front door - and his nomadic life on the road.
Behind this seemingly laid back Aussie surfer dude’s demeanor and appearance, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter has a secret: he’s an extreme risk-taker.
Those familiar with Churchill’s Australian radio smash “Window to The Sky”, which reached number 42 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 in 2014, will recognise signature elements in these new recordings: intricate guitar work, intuitive vocal melodies and a wonderful feeling of space and warmth. New single “Second Hand Car” is typical Churchill with its retro keys, propulsive guitar line and rousing chant-a-long chorus.
