Single release: ‘The Campfire Song’ by Kasey Chambers & The Fireside Disciples

kaseyKasey Chambers is a national treasure – a singer-songwriter so exceptional that I reckon she should have her own theme park. In lieu of such a park, however, her fans can pay tribute by listening to her new music as soon as it’s released. So I shouldn’t be slightly late posting about her new single, ‘The Campfire Song’, but I am.

Chambers has released the song under the moniker ‘Kasey Chambers & The Fireside Disciples’. I’m going to presume that the three men in the band – Brandon Dodd, who has toured with Kasey over the last three years; Alan Pigram, a long-time family friend, fellow musician (from The Pigram Brothers) and Indigenous elder from Broome, WA; and her father, Bill Chambers – are her disciples.

Chambers’s sound has evolved with each album but it’s always true to her, and in a way that doesn’t alienate her fans. Lyrically, musically and in performance, she is one of the most exciting, compelling artists in the land. ‘The Campfire Song’ harkens to the roots of her sound yet it doesn’t sound like it could have come from an earlier album. She’s still evolving, and still exceptional.

‘The Campfire Song’ is taken from Chambers’s upcoming album, Campfire, due for release on 27 April ahead of a national tour.
