With their distinct acoustic Folk-Rock atmosphere Churchill began in 2009 with two friends, guitarist + singer & songwriter Tim Bruns and mandolin player Mike Morter, who decided join forces and start a new band in Denver, Colorado USA. While the two musicians came from a Country-Bluegrass background, the addition of the bass and drum powerhouse of Tyler Rima and Joe Richmond brought more of a Rock vibe into the mix. Rounding out the line-up was keyboardist + vocalist Bethany Kelly, who comes from a classical background. The process took only a few weeks and the chemistry was apparent, resulting in a dynamic fusion of styles into a sound that made them immediately recognizable.
After selling more than 1,000 copies of their debut self-titled EP, the quintet issued their first full-length disc, "Happy Sad", in February 2011.
In the spring of the following year Churchill put out a new EP, a 5-song set titled "The Change" which includes the Alernative Rock top 40 hit "Change".
