Songstress Kasey Chambers will be hitting the road again in June to perform songs and hits from her entire back catalogue with very special friends Ashleigh Dallas, Harry Hookey and Bill Chambers.
In a two hour show, audiences will be treated to the magic of Kasey’s hit songs from albums that have spanned the last decade combined with the sounds of two upcoming artists who are fast becoming names on the live scene, Ashleigh Dallas and Harry Hookey as well as Bill Chambers, the voice that has performed with Kasey since she was a child and taught her everything she knows about music.
“I am SO EXCITED to be back on the road again soon playing old songs and new ones from ‘The Captain’ ‘Barricades and Brickwalls’… all the way through to ‘Little Bird’ ‘Wreck & Ruin’ and everything in between,” said Kasey. “It also gives me a chance to share the stage with 3 of the best artists in Australia… The man who taught me more about music than any other person in the world – my dad, Bill Chambers and my 2 favourite new singer/songwriters Harry Hookey and Ashleigh Dallas”.
Hailing from country music royalty, Ashleigh Dallas is the grand daughter of renowned country musician, Rex Dallas and has been part of Kasey’s touring band for the last two years playing mandolin and fiddle. Ashleigh is gearing up to release her debut album and performs regularly around the Central Coast of NSW and in her home town of Tamworth.
Audiences have been blown away by Harry Hookey’s performances and he is fast becoming one of the most exciting acts to hit the live scene. Fresh out of the studio from recording his debut album with his band (comprising of his two brothers on guitar and Nash Chambers on the drums) Harry gigs relentlessly around his home city of Melbourne and has performed gigs across the US and showcased at the Americana Festival.
Known as the patriarch of the Chambers clan, Bill Chambers has successfully carved out his own musical career and has released 3 of his own solo albums and produced other artists such as ARIA award winner Catherine Britt, The Dead Ringer Band and US based singer/songwriter Audrey Auld. Bill still finds time to go out on the road with his talented prodigy, having performed in Kasey’s band ever since she launched her solo career and is the founding member of The Hillbilly Killers, an alt/country act he formed with You Am I frontman, Tim Rogers and Catherine Britt.
Kasey and Special Guests will be hitting the road in Darwin, Canberra, regional Victoria and NSW.
