Formed in 2007 by brothers Nick and Ben Batton, Chil got their start in the suburbs of Akron, Ohio. The band has grown from two to three members over the years, and today, Chil’s composition includes singer and rhythm guitarist Nick, lead guitarist Ian Minnick, who joined in 2012, and drummer Ben.
From their first shows in Kent, Ohio to the release of their first album, Only Good Karma in 2012, Chil’s sound has morphed from pop-punk to a cohesive blend of indie, rock, and even EDM music that creates a sound unique to Chil.
Following their pioneer album, Chil released Keep Us From Sinking in March 2014. From 2014-2015, Chil released three singles produced by Forever the Sickest Kid’s Austin Bello, and in April 2016, No Sleep, No Silence, also produced by Bello, marked Chil’s third album release.
Chil’s success does not end in Northeast Ohio. The band has played shows from Indiana to New York, and has radio play from six countries in Europe, in Canada, and in the US.
Chil does not credit a single source for their musical influence, but rather, embraces a variety of artists and genres to inspire their own unique sound. Chil looks forward to continuing to play shows and sharing their music with as many people as possible.
