Fans of the new indie-folk movement, rejoice: the Denver-based band Churchill is adding a fresh new voice to the scene.” – Rolling Stone

Blessed with two distinctive lead vocalists – Tim Bruns (vox/guitars) and Bethany Kelly (vox/piano), Churchill’s kaleidoscopic sound is driven by its expansive approach to songwriting and a strong musical chemistry. Tim Bruns and Mike Morter (mandolin/guitar) deliver the freewheeling alt-country vibe; Bethany adds sophisticated classical flourishes, Tyler Rima (bass) and Joe Richmond (drums) inject the rock attitude.

Kelly says the song determines who sings lead. “We try different variations to see what works best,” she says. “Our goal is to do whatever is right for the song.”

“Instead of writing songs to fit some narrow definition of who we are, we let each song find its own voice naturally,” explains Bruns, the chief songwriter.

The band proves its versatility in other ways too, producing all of its own music thanks to drummer Joe Richmond, an accomplished audio engineer. “We’re not opposed to working with an outside producer, but Joe is so good we’ve never needed to,” Morter explains. Bruns adds: “Part of it too is that we’d rather stand or fall on our own.” 

Thanks to the success of “Change,” Churchill has stayed busy touring the States. The band’s high-energy and charismatic performances have earned raves while attracting a growing number of fans. Those who come out have been treated to a number of new songs destined for Churchill’s forthcoming full-length debut in the Spring of 2013. Bruns promises even more musical surprises. “We don’t want to be a band that ever does the same thing twice.”
