Church & Chambers - “Back To Metuchen (Acoustic / Live @ Rider U)”
If I blow a goodbye kiss to my loneliness I drown that of which I’m certain / It’s always there / It never fails / It’s full of surprises
Our bass player Jenna asked me to write a bio for Church & Chambers, and I immediately thought the same thing that I always think:
I realized after I had written the following that Fueled By Ramen doesn’t have the time to read through a page - long comic strip of a bio, and it would be a bad idea to send them one.
But here it is anyway, for your reading pleasure:
When I was in the sixth grade, I stumbled upon Fall Out Boy’s music video for “Grand Theft Autumn.”
I was forever changed, almost instantly.
I wasn’t sure what exactly I had heard, but I was sure that I was completely and totally in love with it. My birthday was a week later, and I asked for a guitar. What I got was that shitty $100 Squier Strat beginner’s pack that they sell at Guitar Center. I didn’t know the first thing about guitars, but that didn’t stop me from immediately picking it up and making noises with it. Eventually I managed to make enough different noises and yell enough different words that put together they made something that vaguely resembled a song.
I called it “Losing Altitude,” and it was awful.
Luckily for my friends and family that were forced to listen to me, I continued practicing and got better. Seven years later, in the present, I’m a lot better. I’m finally confident enough in my songwriting abilities that I decided to put my words and chord progressions to the ultimate test and send a Church & Chambers demo to you
at Fueled By Ramen on the internets. I put my entire heart into everything I write, and it shows.
