THE CHURCHHILL GARDEN is a one man band based in lucerne right in the heart of Switzerland. Growing up in time with the best alternative music (late 80 early 90). I have always liked the melancholic sounds of bands like the Cure, Cocteau Twins, Joy Division and I went on to become a big fan of the shoegaze movement.

I started playing guitar when I was about 19 but gave up shortly afterwards as I didn't feel that I had the knack for it. Many Years later, a friend of mine asked me to play with them because we came from the same musical background. I agreed and went out and bought a guitar, amplifier and a delay pedal then started practicing. However I had no intentions of performing live and that was the direction they wanted to take so eventually we went our separate ways.

Later I was asked if i could play bass by a guy who wanted to record some old songs from his late band DAWN

I agreed even though I hadn't played bass before but as it was a recording it could always be tweaked later. So we went to the studio and recorded a 10 inch vinyl record.

I realised that nobody really wants to play with someone who doesn't want to play live. So I decided to make a go of it on my own as I had pretty much all I needed to set up a home studio.

I bought a Guitar rig and started making my first recordings with Garage Band. I had never written a song before. I didn't really how to proceed but I was really enjoying myself. So I started this little project.
