Biography

For those of you who haven’t heard The Churchills, tune into prime time television and all of that will change. The band’s songs have appeared on a slough of hit television shows like “ER”, “Scrubs”, and “Everwood” - films suchs as, Mira Sorvino’s “Too Tired To Die”, and Comedy Central’s “Porn and Chicken.” Tracks from The Odds Of Winning have already been licensed for new episodes of “Third Watch”, “ER”, “Summerland”, “Scrubs” and “MTV’s” new show “Miss Seventeen”. In fact Meadow Soprano has been seen wearing a Churchills t-shirt on “The Sopranos.”

The Odds Of Winning may be a bit darker in tone and emotion than some of their previous releases, but equally as infectious with their signature power pop gems like “Sometimes Your Best Isn’t Good Enough,” heard throughout. This new album retains all the melodic bombast and sparkling hooks of their past word, but adds a twist of bitter sadness. This depth of sad optimism set to riffs so catchy they would make all of Cheap Trick blush.

The band formed in 2000 when founding members Ron Haney and Bart Schoudel got one of their songs into the hands of Michael J. Fox, who put them on three episodes of his show “Spin City.” The band appeared playing their song “Everybody Gets What They Deserve” live on the street in the show. Since then they have been featured widely on radio and video outlets around the country, and syndicated on NPR around the world.

Their 2002 album Big Ideas was met with much critical acclaim and they have played extensively throughout Japan, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. After touring the world, The Churchills are now set to break out of the small screen and into cd players everywhere.

Lyrics

sometimes your best isn't good enough

Written By: ron haney, bart schoudel

sometimes your best isn't good enough - if you're all i wanted why can't i just stay. but you cared enough to send me on my way. i'm standing on the edge and i cant go back. i can't bring myself to do it. if i'm all you wanted why don't you just say. but you're scared enough to send me on my way. its my life or something like it and i want i back. i can't bring myself to do it. sometimes your best isn't good enough. sometimes your best wont do.

i'm a sucker for a girl in uniform

Written By: ron haney, bart schoudel

I'm a sucker for a girl in uniform - i try to turn away but i'm always so excited. sexy joan of arc before she was ignited. shes the kind of girl who knows just what she wants. underneath the armor girls just want some fun. i'm a sucker for a girl in uniform. barely seventeen and shining her police shield. they try to fight a war, they look like ashley banfield. shes the kind of girl you know is gonna give you some. camouflage jeans and a microphone for a gun.
