Emmylou Harris Makes An Appearance On New Kasey Chambers Album

in News

The legendary Emmylou Harris will be heard singing with Kasey Chambers on Kasey’s upcoming album ‘Campfire’.

“It is an absolute dream come true that I actually have Emmylou Harris singing a duet with me on Campfire,” Kasey says. “She ended up being an “honorary” Fireside Disciple for the album.”

‘Campfire’ is Kasey’s 12th album. She has made it with her band The Fireside Disciples. The Fireside Disciples have toured the world with Kasey for the last three years. They are Alan Pigram, Brandon Dodd and Kasey’s dad Bill Chambers.

“I grew up in the remote outback of Australia living a unique lifestyle isolated from civilisation,” Kasey Chambers said in a statement. “The campfire was the heart of our existence: for survival, creativity, inspiration. We hunted all our own food and then cooked it on the campfire. My brother and I did all our schooling via correspondence around the campfire. We used the campfire for warmth and light. We gathered around the campfire at night to play songs together as a family. Our connection to music and the land has developed through and around the campfire since I was born, so it has always stayed with me as a special part of my life”.

“All these 4 places have had a significant impact on shaping who I am both musically and personally,” Kasey says. “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…”
