Australian country musician Kasey Chambers is a true storyteller. From the red dust of her nomadic childhood to the surf coast where she’s raised her family, her records are a testament to “ who [she] was at the time.” Her eleventh and newest album, 2017’s “ Dragonfly,” is proof that she’s unwilling to settle for anything less.
Born in Mount Gambier, South Australia, Chambers grew up in a home environment where listening to and performing country and roots music was a way of life. It had to rub off—and it did—just as in later years, living on the Nullarbor Plain and traveling all over Australia with her family, the young Chambers got an education like no other. She spent her childhood absorbing the music of Hank Williams, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash and other country greats loved by her parents. It was in the family’s revered Dead Ringer Band that 10-year-old Chambers got her first real taste of being on stage. By the time she was in her late teens she was fronting the band and writing songs.
Now, decades later, Chambers’ music seems buried in Australia’s bones. Beyond accolades and album sales, there’s something immutable about Kasey Chambers, something that makes her as vital to the music landscape as the red rock where her music was born.
