KASEY CHAMBERS RELEASES LIVE VERSION OF EMINEM CLASSIC

Kasey Chambers is not just an incredible songwriter and performer but she’s also a master of interpreting other’s songs. Not afraid to step outside the country realm, she’s taken Eminem’s classic hip hop track ‘Lose Yourself’ and transformed it into (initially) a haunting elegy to hopes and dreams.

Not many can interpret and recontextualise the cadence and dexterity of rap into a folk song that sounds like it was passed down through the centuries. Stick around for the full song, as at the mid-point the band join in and transform the song to an explosive blues revelry, Chambers’ impassioned and emotive howl elevating the song to a spine-tingling crescendo.
