Kim Churchill is a young man living life by his design, and as he casually walks up Sydney Road in Brunswick, the environmentally conscious artist picks up trash left on the sidewalk by inconsiderate litterers. Today we are visiting a local beach to talk all things life and music.
With his wayward curls and genuine smile, Kim speaks about his life with great passion and enthusiasm. He’s been living out of a van for the past several months, camping where he finds a nice spot, and writing music. It’s the kind of life that some only dream of, yet Kim is experiencing it pending time wherever his heart desires.
As we traverse through the busy streets of Melbourne and out towards the beauty of Half Moon Bay, our destination for today’s photo shoot, one gets the sense that Kim is one of the most genuine musicians that graces Australian stages.
There is an aura of calm about him; Kim is a person at ease in his environment and his place in it. He’s a surfer who never checks the surf report, a traveller who will spend nights camped in places that make him happy, however most of all, Kim is an authentic human being. There is no pretence with him and what you see is what you get- at times his enthusiasm for life just bubbles over the edges.
These life experiences resonate in his music, and have become the backdrop to new music that he is working on, which seems like the perfect melting pot for creativity. To just go with the flow and see where life takes you seems to be the best thing for creating his art.
