Incoming: Kasey Chambers Covers Collection

 

Trove of iconic tunes that inspired the singer.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Storybook is en route from Aussie songstress Kasey Chambers,
July 30 via Sugar Hill. The fifteen song release is a collection of songs that
inspired Kasey to become a musician. In her words, “this album is a collection
of songs and tributes to artists who have influenced me from when I was a small
child up until now. I can honestly say that I would not be who I am today
without the music from these incredible singer/songwriters and their
inspiration.”

 

The album is the musical
accompaniment to her autobiography, A
Little Bird Told Me
, which was recently published by Harper Collins
in Australia. 
On Storybook, Chambers thumbs through
the songbooks of Gram Parsons, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, John Prine,
Townes Van Zandt and more.  She’ll also
have a brand new run of tour dates in conjunction with the worldwide release of
Storybook.
