Kasey Chambers announce 22 date tour – Behind The Barricades with Kasey Chambers & Busby Marou

Kasey Chambers announces ‘The Captain’ 20th Anniversary Tour!

Twenty years ago Kasey Chambers released her groundbreaking debut album The Captain. It was a pivotal record that remains the cornerstone of her outstanding career. In celebration of The Captain’s 20th Anniversary, Kasey will be performing some very special shows – sentimentally reforming her original band and playing songs from The Captain album, alongside a “best of her career” set.

The Captain remains one of the most extraordinary and lauded debuts by an Australian artist in any genre. An album that saw critics and the public heralding it as a blast of fresh air in the local country scene. Songs such as the title track, ‘Cry Like A Baby’ and ‘These Pines’ boasted a maturity beyond her years and a wealth of Americana-styled musical influences, yet the album had Australia and family at its core, ingredients that have been a staple of Kasey’s song-writing ever since then.

The Captain saw Kasey pick up her first solo ARIA Awards, for Best Country Album and Best Female Artist, the album would go double-platinum in Australia, reach the Top 50 of the US Billboard Country albums and enabled Kasey to launch her music to the world.

Music fans at the 2019 Byron Bay Blues Fest were treated to a preview of The Captain 20th Anniversary show, the festival which gave Kasey a huge platform for her music when she started 20 years ago was a fitting place to kick off the anniversary show celebrations.

Supporting Kasey for The Captain 20th Anniversary shows is singer songwriter Charlie Collins. Having played in various bands both in Australia and overseas, Charlie has shared the stage with Gang of Youths, Death Cab for Cutie and Jack River in the last year, as well as performing at Laneway, Fairgrounds and Tamworth Country Music Festivals. Kasey and Charlie met in Tamworth early in The Captain days making her support on this tour particularly special. Charlie explains further..  

“When I was 10, Bill Chambers got me up on his show. I sung Kasey’s ‘This Flower’. Kasey joined me on stage that night and that feeling I got I will never forget. My idol, my hero, my inspiration. To be asked to join this tour is a dream come true. The Captain was one of the first records I bought and it changed my life.”

Join Kasey to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Captain and share the journey of the past two decades of her world-class songs and intimate stories – a unique concert experience not to be missed!

Kasey Chambers Celebrates 20th Anniversary of ‘The Captain’ with Deluxe Edition

Kasey Chambers has today announced the release of “The Captain Deluxe Edition” on May 17, 2019, exactly 20 years to the day since her ground breaking debut album “The Captain” was released, ensuring her place amongst Australia’s most revered songwriters and recording artists.

“The Captain Deluxe Edition” includes memorabilia and an unreleased track from archive, compiled by Kasey to share in this unique new package. This recently unearthed song ‘Hey Girl’, written around the time of the album, is available to fans from today – listen below.

“The Captain Deluxe Edition” package includes the 12 tracks from the original album plus ‘Hey Girl’ (unearthed track), 7 tracks from the bonus edition (released in 2000), and 13 previously unreleased track-by-track interview pieces from 1999. The accompanying 32 page booklet has never before seen pictures of Kasey’s childhood, promotional and live photos, and an image of the original handwritten lyrics for the title track “The Captain” – pre-order HERE.

Accompanying the release of the Deluxe Edition is “The Captain” original album on vinyl for the very first time. Fans should get in quick to secure their copy – pre-order HERE.

Discussing “The Captain” back in 1999, Kasey said “I’d like to convert some people with this record. I think it has the potential to prove that country music has a lot more depth and soul…” How right she was! This pivotal record, the cornerstone of her outstanding career, remains one of the most extraordinary and lauded debuts by an Australian artist in any genre. The critics and the public saw “The Captain” for what it was – a blast of fresh air in the local country scene. Songs such as the title track, ‘Cry Like A Baby’ and ‘These Pines’ boasted a maturity beyond her years and a wealth of Americana-styled musical influences, yet the album had Australia and family at its core, ingredients that have been a staple of Kasey’s song-writing ever since. Off the back of “The Captain”, Kasey picked up her first solo ARIA Awards, for Best Country Album and Best Female Artist. The album would go Triple Platinum in Australia, reach the Top 50 of the US Billboard Country Albums and launch Kasey’s music to the world.

Kasey followed the release of “The Captain” with 11 more albums, each one cementing her place on the global country artist stage and garnering her a cabinet full of awards. In 2018 she was the youngest female ever to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, reinforcing her place as one of Australia’s most respected, accomplished and captivating performers.
