Biography

 

Little Bird is part of astounding outpouring of new material from Kasey Chambers. 14 diverse compositions written within two hectic weeks in February 2010, then recorded as a complete album a month later. Due for release on 17th September Little Bird, is the first solo album in 4 years from one of Australia’s most accomplished singer songwriters.

The new album represents the most diverse spread of musical styles of Kasey’s glittering career, which has reaped multiple ARIA and APRA awards, Number One hits and multi-platinum sales in Australia and around the world.

Little Bird the single was released to radio in August 2010 and gained national radio play instantly pushing the boundaries for modern country music by gaining radio play on Major FM networks.

Listen closely and you’ll hear a poignant note behind the sunny, optimistic sound of Little Bird, as Kasey reflects on a young woman’s insecurities.
“I started remembering how I felt when I wrote Not Pretty Enough and comparing it to how I feel now. I was wondering how that sentiment would come out if I revisited it,” says Kasey. “I still have moments like that, of feeling insecure and unsure, but I feel differently about that now. I feel stronger and more powerful, not willing to compromise so much.

“This is like the strong, secure version of Pretty Enough.”

Little Bird follows Kasey’s success in 2009 with “Kasey Chambers, Poppa Bill and The Little Hillbillies.” Released in November through Liberation.
This project included Kasey’ s first children’s book and joint effort Album with her Dad Bill, which also sees the debut of a new generation of Chambers singer/songwriters. The Little Hillbillies are made up of Kasey’s sons Talon and Arlo, Bill’s further additions, Jake and Tyler, Nash’s tribe of 3, Eden, Skye and Béla and best friend Worm’s son Townes.

BIO- Sarah Jarosz

 

Sarah Jarosz has as rich a skill set as anybody in acoustic music. She plays, not just one instrument, but enough of them to be a one-woman string band: mandolin, octave mandolin, clawhammer banjo and guitar. She sings – in supple tones that transcend the boundaries between folk and pop – and she writes – old-timey ballads and modern singer-songwriter ruminations alike. Raised just outside of Austin in Wimberley, Tex., Jarosz blossomed within the local music scene and well beyond it, earning admirers from Austin City Limits’ Terry Lickona to acoustic music mavens Tim O’Brien and Chris Thile with her mature sensibilities. She released her debut, Song Up In Her Head, on Sugar Hill Records the year she graduated high school. What followed was a move to Boston’s prestigious New England Conservatory, a GRAMMY nomination and performances on “Austin City Limits” and “A Prairie Home Companion” as well as prestigious music festivals – Bonnaroo, Telluride and Newport, to name a few.

In May of 2011, Follow Me Down came out, a sophomore album that coincided with the end of her sophomore year of college. It channeled her ever-broadening musical horizons, and again showcased her songwriting, offering two tasty covers and including a number of top-notch guests from Punch Brothers to Shawn Colvin. The album met with critical acclaim - the New York Times called Jarosz “one of acoustic music’s most promising young talents”, and MSN Music named her “one of the fastest-rising stars in the roots music scene”.

What followed was a whirlwind tour packed into summer break. Since neither Sarah nor her musicians, Nathaniel Smith (cello) and Alex Hargreaves (violin) were old enough to rent a car, it became the tour of planes, trains and automobiles driven by whoever could be pressed into service. Despite this, Sarah managed to cover a large portion of the United States, make several forays into Canada and two trips to Europe. One of the highlights of her year included participation in the Transatlantic Sessions – a folk collaboration of top musicians from the United States, Ireland, and the UK. This fall, she returned to NEC for her junior year, which will be punctuated by more touring slipped into holiday breaks.

Despite her age, Sarah Jarosz maintains a highly developed sense of what she’s about. “What’s most important,” she emphasizes, “is just trying to stay true to myself as an artist and be as original as I can.” Whether it’s continuing her studies at NEC or soaking up inspiration from collaborations with musicians across the globe she’s doing just that.
