At just 21 years of age, Kim Churchill is revered worldwide for his guitar talents, with a technique and lyrical outlook far beyond his years. His style is unique and explosive, with intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with a 24-inch kick drum, electronic snare trigger, cascading harmonica melodies, and soulful voice.

Having played for more than a decade, Kim’s career kicked off in 2009 after high school, busking and travelling Australia in a campervan to share his music with friends and strangers alike.

Since then, he has won the National Youth Folk Artist of the Year award in 2009, been selected from hundreds by the Byron Bay Bluesfest Busker competition in 2010, and was added twice to the famous festival’s lineup in 2011, sharing the main stage with Xavier Rudd, Michael Franti, Ben Harper, Paul Kelly and the great Bob Dylan. He has also performed at The Falls Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Queenscliff Music Festival among others, and in the last 12 months has taken his show to Japan, Canada, the UK and the US.
