Editorial Reviews

Storybook is a collection of songs that inspired the acclaimed Australian singer/songwriter to become a musician. 'It was exciting to be a human jukebox for this record,' she confesses, 'to get the chance to record the songs I love.' On the record, Kasey works her magic on gutsy, soulful tunes hand-picked from the iconic songbooks of Gram Parsons, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, John Prine, James McMurtry, Gillian Welch, Patty Griffin, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and more. These are songs with a fair bit of grit in their grooves, populated by very real, very human characters.

Format: Audio CD
Kasey Chambers, although a legend in her home, Australia, is relatively unknown in the States and will probably remain that way since she she seems content to remain at home with her family and resists touring. Our loss. Do yourself a favor and make the effort to seek out her music. "Storybook" is a wonderful compilation of covers of songs by others that have inspired her. But to truly appreciate her talent, both as a singer and a songwriter, you must also sample her earlier releases. Just pick one at random. You'll be back for more.

An album of covers of songs she likes... Hank's "I'm so lonesome I could cry", Graham Parsons' "Return of the Grievous Angel". She has the a sound similar to a very young Jesse Colter. This is a great album by a great artist. You will not be disappointed. A fantastic purchase.

I love finding music that is lyrically moving, creative and thought-provoking that speaks to authentic emotions and human experience and I found this and more in Kasey Chambers' "Storybook". Her voice is one-of-a-kind with a sweet yet strong and passionate quality that will make you want to re-play each song over and over. Many of her songs do indeed tell a story (Everything's Turning to White, Luka, Orphan Girl)and others are more lighthearted and upbeat (Happy Woman Blues,Leave the Lights on - a John Prine original). From Ballads to Blues this album has it all (my personal favorite is Grievous Angel). If you don't like wasting your time with mainstream music that leaves you wanting something to feed your soul and stir your emotions, join me in adding Kasey Chambers to your daily playlists! You won't be disappointed! If you like Kasey Chambers you should also listen to Brandi Carlile and one of my all time favorites, Nanci Griffith.

Kasey Chambers is a gem.....
A real life keeper.....
A incredible easy listening and fine artist. I found her by accident while listening to the Emmy's several years ago,
Her voice was doing back grounds for a performer. She was way in the back but man that voice was impossible not to be drawn to......

After spending weeks looking through the credits on the Emmy's I found the name for that voice. It was Kasey Chambers and Wow what a find...
She was raised in the Aussie Out back by her families who were hunters of Fox and Rabbits and somehow we were lucky enough to get her to America. She must have had one hell of a Agent to get her to us,. But I am glad she made the trip

My favorite CD of hers is called the "Captain" while you are ordering this CD which is also great order the Captain....
I own all of her music and she has nothing below a 5..... This lady and her family are terrific..

She in my opinion will go down in History along with Etta and many of our other fine female Blues Best of the Bests......
So now that you know what I think of her what's holding ya up?
Buy some of her music
Buy her she is truly very cool.....

Like a good many others, I first happened across Kasey Chambers from her track The Captain, which figured in an episode of The Sopranos (Season 3, the episode where that slimeball Ralphie gets promoted, awwww I miss that show). And she's been under my radar a bit, but has done some excellent work, much of it her own compositions and in tandem with her partner Shane Nicholson. But this collection of covers of material that's inspired her is terrific, and for me "Water in the Fuel" (originally by Fred Eaglesmith) is worth the price of admission all on its own. It's a killer. And her distinctive covers of Luka, True Colours and Everything's Turning To White (which made me rewatch Short Cuts (The Criterion Collection)]) respect the originals while adding her own twist to them.

I enjoyed most of the songs on this album. She's a good, strong performer and I wish she'd come to the States, preferably the western states! We have venues too!

Great album for Kasey Chambers fans. Very good renditions of the covers, in the Kasey Chambers style we love while staying faithful to the original versions.
