The Multi-Award winning Duo are heading out on tour to present their respective solo albums. Kasey Chambers’ Little Bird and Shane Nicholson’s Bad Machines.
Kasey Chambers ‘Little Bird’ album was released in September 2010, debuting on the national album charts at #3 and winning 4 Golden Guitars at the recent Tamworth Country Music Awards.
Kasey’s just released the second single from ‘Little Bird’. ‘Beautiful Mess’ was a song she wrote for her children. “It’s a song I wrote when I was at home babysitting a friend’s one-year-old son, Townes, along with my two boys Arlo (2) and Talon (8). It was one of those chaotic days with kids running around and having lots of fun while this song was coming out. And that’s what it felt like that day – a beautiful mess. That’s what parenting constantly feels like. It’s specifically written for Arlo and Talon, who are the most important things in my entire life. I love them. And I have an outlet to show them that through songs.”
While Kasey has been touring right around Australia, Shane’s been at home taking care of the kids and putting the finishing touches to his superb brand new album ‘Bad Machines’.
Shane Nicholson headlined his own show at the 2011 Tamworth Country Music Festival; debuting tracks from his upcoming fourth solo album; ‘Bad Machines’. The show was a total sell-out and the talk of the Tamworth as one of the great gigs of this years Festival with fans and music media all eager for the release of the album on March 25th, 2011 through Liberation Music.
In the coming weeks it will be Shane’s turn to hit the promotional trail and introduce the ‘Bad Machines’ album to media and country music fans all around Australia. With a couple of media launches in February leaving the media and other special guests raving about the songs of ‘Bad Machines’, the album is set to be a highlight of this year’s album releases and already has fans eagerly waiting for Shane to tour it across Australia.
Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson’s double header live shows will feature Kasey’s hits and of course songs from her award winning ‘Little Bird’ while Shane will perform the songs of ‘Bad Machines’ along with tracks from his critically acclaimed back catalogue; ‘It’s a Movie’, ‘Faith & Science’ & ‘Familiar Ghosts’.
