KASEY CHAMBERS TO RELEASE HER NEW ALBUM BITTERSWEET OUT AUGUST 29
I had a house to myself and I had to set the tone for a productive morning of writing. I needed some inspiration and energy to get me going. I put the Kasey Chambers new album Bittersweet, into the CD player for the first time.
THE MUSIC OF KASEY CHAMBERS
I was seriously drawn into the music and its substance, it wasn’t just catchy tunes, they were stories and some of them really resonated with me.
The first two songs played, Oh Grace and Is God Real, they really drew me in and made me stop and listen. But then, Wheelbarrow, Kasey’s first single, came on with its brassy swaying vocals mingling with a bit of banjo underneath the layers of some overdriven guitar, and boy did it get my feet tapping and head nodding. You can see what I mean by watching the video!
And I can’t forget the title track, Bittersweet. This song harks back to the ballsy, alternative country rock that flavoured seven times platinum selling Barricades & Brickwalls, it also features the well known voice of Bernard Fanning.
The thing I love about Kasey’s voice is that it’s unique, intriguing and mysterious; unlike the ‘pop’ music I often hear where everyone sounds the same.
The other thing that I love about Kasey is that with this Bittersweet album, she decided to depart from what’s usually expected from her and embark on a new phase in her career. You may have seen her in the past collaborating with her brother, Nash Chambers, but this time she’s gone it alone. “I wanted to have an experience making a record that I had never had before. I wanted to challenge myself and I wanted to be excited, ” she says.
The reason I love this attitude? It’s because this is how I love to live my life too, if you don’t challenge yourself and try new things, you’ll never know what you’re really capable of.
Apart from Kasey’s music, she is one of those women that inspire me because while she’s been able to win 10 APRA Awards, 10 ARIA Awards, 20 Golden Guitar Awards and nominations for 2 Americana Music Awards, she’s also managed to raise three children. Now there’s a multitasking mummy for you!
Kasey will premiere her new album Bittersweet at the Gympie Music Muster, followed by three intimate east coast city shows in September. Want to get a taste of the new album in person? Check out the dates here.
Bittersweet is Kasey’s 10th studio album and her first solo record in 4 years. The good news is that it will be released on the 29th of August, be the first to have the album and pre-order here.
