NEWS: Kasey Chambers Announces New Album ‘Campfire’

KaseyChambersCover_2048x

Kasey Chambers has followed up last year’s Dragonfly double album with a new band, The Campfire Disciples, and their new album Campfire. Due out on April 27th, the album represents the connection she’s had to different lands and cultures throughout her life, and drawing from the regions that have influenced her the most – Australia, Africa, Norfolk Island and America.

All these 4 places have had a significant impact on shaping who I am both musically and personally. From my early years of my family drawing from the Aboriginal way of life in the outback of Australia to experiencing the African culture and immediately connecting with it, living the seaside lifestyle in Southend, South Australia and later on, my time living on Norfolk Island to then many years of touring throughout America and being inspired by their musical culture, I have taken all of those experiences and put them into the songs and sounds for Campfire…”

The Fireside Disciples consist of three of her favourite musicians – Brandon Dodd, who has toured the world with Kasey over the last three years; Alan Pigram, a long-time family friend, fellow musician (from the renowned band The Pigram Brothers) and Indigenous elder from Broome WA; and of course her Dad, Bill Chambers, who has been the biggest musical influence of her whole life.

‘The Campfire Song’ is the first single to be released from the album and through the languid pacing, acoustic instrumentation and heartfelt vocals you can hear the mood and atmosphere of wide open spaces and imagine the crackling of dry wood under the pinpricked vista of a starry night.
