It was so nice to finally have a chance to sit down and catch up with Kim Churchill. I’ve known Kim for a long time and watched his career go from strength to strength. He’s an amazing guitarist, songwriter and singer and really took foot percussion to a new level.
Here's what we chatted about:
Some of our favourite quotes from this episode.
“Often I find that the lyrics and moments of music I’m most proud of don’t come from any cognitive understanding of a lesson learnt or a skill attained, it is an obscure semi dream like thing that I don’t understand or know how I did it”
“I try to allow my music to come from an emotive kind of creative flow, where you are not thinking”
“I made music that I literally stitched fear in to…..so I had to put it down and it was an enormous weight off my shoulders to put it down, even though it was a massive step back”
“It took me a while to reconnect to writing music for myself, and for a while there I don’t even think I enjoyed playing music”
“There are pros and cons to every career path and it’s one of the few negative things about doing what you love for your job, that sometimes you stop loving it and you have to battle to get back to it”
“We need to work hard at maintaining a grateful attitude and to fill our lives”
