Little Bird – Kasey Chambers
|The Frontier Touring Company by arrangement with Premier Artists and Essence Music are proud to present Kasey Chambers ‘Little Bird’ tour.
Kasey’s fifth solo album, ‘Little Bird’, will be released on Friday September 17th.
The 14 tracks were recorded with an all-star band that Kasey dubs The Millionaires; John Watson on drums, Jeff McCormack on bass, with her husband Shane Nicholson, Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) and Kasey’s dad Bill Chambers playing all manner of guitars and stringed instruments. Then came a procession of respected guest vocalists for different tracks: Missy Higgins, Camille Te Nahu, Brooke Harvey, Andy Toombs, James Gillard, and seminal American country singer Patty Griffin.
“These guys are some of my favourite musicians, including the backbone of my touring band, so there is a familiarity and intuitive understanding of where this music should go,” says Kasey. “When the songs are that fresh, there’s something magical about taking them into the studio and bringing them to life, right then and there.”
Kasey will commence her national ‘Little Bird’ tour the same day as the album is released. She will be joined on the road by John Watson on drums, Bill Chambers – multi instruments, Jeff McCormack on bass, Michael Muchow on guitar and Ashleigh Dallas on fiddle.
Over the next three months Kasey and the band will perform shows right around Australia. As well as the gorgeous new songs from ‘Little Bird’, Kasey will also perform all her classic hits from her previous four solo recordings plus songs from her ARIA and multi Golden Guitar winning collaboration with her husband; Shane Nicholson ‘Rattlin Bones’.
