I thought it'd be a great idea to put the latest albums up from the artists playing at Bluesfest - so those of you lucky enough to go can check out what you want to see. And for those of you overseas who, I'm sure, will be extremely jealous. So check back here over the next week or so to check it out, and of course any more new announcements of performers will be added also.AND REMEMBER - POSTS ARE RUNNING FROM TOP TO BOTTOM - SO YOU'LL HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN AND GO THRU THE PAGES TO FIND THE NEWER POSTS

Kim Churchill – Kim Churchill (2011)

Kim Churchill is proof that having a band to back you up can be overrated. This one-man music machine has been taking over the Australian folk music scene, and Churchill is now making his way across the Pacific so we can see firsthand what all the hype is about.
The 20-year-old Merimbula, Australia native’s self-titled album is a composite of folk-blues ballads showcasing Churchill’s impeccable story-telling abilities, all while he’s playing harmonica, shaking a tambourine, and finger-picking and slamming away rhythms on his acoustic guitar.
It’s a little hard to believe that such emotionally charged melodies could come from someone so young. And yet Churchill does not back down from tackling complex themes of war and self-discovery — not something you’d expect from the photo of the laid-back surfer featured on the album’s cover. The depth of tracks such as “Running On” and “The Battle of Mr Shibuya,” with the added soulful touch from his stomp box, exhibit Churchill’s powerfully rugged vocals, illustrating his obvious talents as a lyricist.

Churchill credits the likes of Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, and David Bowie as inspiration, but he sounds much more like a young Xavier Rudd. Luckily for him, his 10 years of classical training seem to have paid off — Churchill demonstrates impeccable skill with his guitar, and the intricate finger-picking and percussive beats on “It’s This System,” the Latin-American influence in “With Sword and Shield” make him stand out in a sea of folk singer-songwriters. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself tapping along to Churchill’s beats; they’re damn contagious.
