Twenty years ago Kasey Chambers released her ground-breaking debut album ‘The Captain’. It was a pivotal record that remains the cornerstone of her outstanding career. In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of The Captain, Kasey performs a very special concert, sentimentally reforming her original band, 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. 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 it’s core, ingredients that have been a staple of Kasey’s song-writing ever since then. Kasey picked 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. Kasey has followed it up 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.
