Australian folk and blues singer Kim Churchill, 23, is currently touring the UK supporting Billy Bragg, and he'll be in London on December 1 and 3. He's been talking to us about ideal dinner guests, mad fans, and the best ways to sleep in a car.

There's no denying that Kim Churchill's on the way up. The NSW-born singer songwriter released his first album, With Sword and Shield, in 2010, and is currently the support act for Billy Bragg’s European tour. He's releasing a new studio album, his third, in 2014.

 What's the tour been like so, far, and where's the best place that you've played?

It's been an amazing adventure, really. I got myself a little van with a bed in the back and set off. Europe was stunning, though the tour was so quick that I felt incapable of digesting the amount of culture on offer each day. The UK has been great because the drives are so small - I have toured Australia and Canada the most, so touring here is a real treat! The theatres I've been playing in before Billy Bragg are really stunning in every way and his audience are an absolute pleasure to play to. I couldn't ask for a better introduction to the UK and Europe.

Do you have any outrageous demands for your rider?

 Nope - I know where I'm at in the food chain!

What's your favourite song to play live and why?

 It always changes. Because I'm on my own onstage, I let things go in whatever direction the feel on the night. I always find my favourite moments are in different songs. I particularly love playing a song called Bathed in Black because it's full of wacky electronic sounds and heavy guitar riffs.
