"Little Bird"

Biography

The pressure was off. Kasey Chambers had announced to her manager, record company and fans that there wouldn’t be a new album for at least another year. And then the songs came rushing out – 14 diverse compositions, all delivered fully formed, completed within a few hectic weeks in February 2010, during which Kasey also performed as opening act through Lyle Lovett’s ...

On her third album, Kasey Chambers steps into her sound.

She doesn't have the vibrato of a Jewel - yet, her voice is very clear and strong - she adds a beautiful texture to any playlist.

I will say this upfront about Kasey Chambers: she consistently creates great albums that are only a few songs away from being excellent. Such is the case with her newest release. When sticking to the Americana-style of roots music, she approaches genius. But her occasional musical journeys into soft pop weigh the entire collection down. Two or three of the songs (including Paper Aeroplane) are bland, and bring nothing new to the listener; at least not this listener. That's fine though; the ten terrific songs are well worth what I paid for the CD.

Prime Cuts: Pony, Bluebird, Like a River

Former lead singer of Australian country band Dead Ringer Band, singer-songwriter Kasey Chambers returns with her third solo album, "Wayward Angel." Once again, this Aussie native serves notice by her insightful lyrics and her keening vocals, often compared to a more angst Emmylou Harris with a trace of Iris Dement's nasal tinge. Like all her solo albums, "Wayward Angel" defies any genre categorization: there's a dose of country-pop, a splash of folk, a pinch of rock and definitely a noticeable slice of bluegrass. Nevertheless, regardless of styles, Chambers has an affecting élan and she is never one to be emotionally peripatetic. Rather, you can hear and feel her heart as she sings with her seasoned nuance through these sylvan tunes.

The album opener, "Pony," an understated pop ballad, finds Chambers putting her best foot forward. Unlike her previous self-depreciative hit "Not Pretty Enough," "Pony" finds a femme fatale making her seductive come-ons performed with a confident and enthralling undertone. "Like a River," the first Australian single, is an effervescent country-pop number with a love struck Chambers basking in the euphoria of love. With an infectious melody and Chambers' fervent performance, "Like a River" stands toe-to-toe with any major country product from Music Row. Clamorous for authenticity, sophomore single "Hollywood," a popish mid tempo number, is a desperate and vulnerable plea; you can almost Chambers' heart breaking as she sings, "This ain't Hollywood this is my heart." While traditionalists may feel querulous, "Guilty as Sin" finds a zesty Chambers kicking up her heels on her most rock number to date bolstered by some delightful sounding jaunty guitars.

It's been three years since Kasey's last release, and anyone who has followed her knows how different her life is now than when she made Barricades and Brickwalls. The growth, nurture, and love that's followed since the birth of her son is quite evident in Wayward Angel. The songs, particularly the softer tracks, flow together marvelously and show a maturing artist. There was a complaint by one fan that the lyrics were "too biographical." First, I'm struggling to figure out how that could ever be a negative thing for a musician to convey. And second, Kasey's tales are extraordinary. I literally got chills at the peak of "Paper Aeroplane" and just hope I never hear it at a funeral, or I'll completely lose it. If you catch any interview with Kasey, you can tell that she just knows that she's progressed as a musician in the right direction. One listen to this record and you can tell too.

After the genre-bending joy of Chambers's last release Barricades and Brickwalls, I found myself a little troubled by Wayward Angel. Quite simply there are stretches of it that could've been made by any country-pop artist - "Mother," "For Sale," and especially the single "Hollywood" are watered-down, and dare I say, even a little boring, to the point that they could have been made by Faith Hill. Chambers is still a gifted artist, undoubtedly, and she proves it for a good portion of the album - the sexy come on of "Pony," the bluegrass assault of "Follow You Home," the magnificent tenderness of "Lost and Found." But when Chambers indulges her pop tendencies, the results get generic, and for someone as original as Chambers, that gets a bit scary to hear.

On her third album, Kasey Chambers steps into her sound. A lot closer to the stripped basics of The Captian, Wayward Angel finds her exploring styles with the same eagerness she employeed on Barricades and Brickwalls. Her writing has matured and Wayward Angel finds her pushing it into new arenas. Overall, her most satisfying album to date.

The first track, "Pony" offers us a sweet and coy version of Kasey Chambers, which is the first time we have heard her this giggly and fun. This simple joy tracks through the album on songs like "Mother" "Follow You Home" and "Guitly As Sin." The last of these finds Kasey embracing a deliciously naughty Wanda Jackson vibe. There are still plenty of the heartwrenchingly sad songs that we have all come to expect from Kasey--including two of her best yet "More Than Ordinary" and "Lost and Found" which finds her ruminating "I am still here/there's no where else to go." This album also finds a new vulnerabilty for Chambers, in the deeply personal songs like "For Sale" and "Saturated." But perhaps the best song on the entire cd is the one which spawned a thousand Patty Griffin comparisons, the piano laden "Paper Aeorplane."

Anyone who has enjoyed Kasey Chambers in the past will find this album more than satisfying and it serves as the perfect intoduction to this delicately perfect artist.
