with Kasey Chambers & Busby Marou
It’s hard to think of two artists who have ingratiated themselves into the hearts and minds of the Australian music loving public more than Kasey Chambers and Busby Marou. This tour will bring together great friends who write incredible songs, love to share a story and have a laugh.
With twelve award-winning albums under her belt since the release of The Captain in 1999, Kasey Chambers’ brilliant songwriting and world-class performance have earned her a rightful position on the global country artist stage. Often described as a genre-defying singer and songwriter, she wears the honesty of country music on her sleeve, and has become one of the most popular and acclaimed artists of her generation in Australia while winning a devoted cult following in the rest of the world.
In 2018 Kasey’s exceptional career was honoured by being the youngest female ever to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. 20 years since Kasey’s ARIA #1 and 7 x platinum album Barricades and Brickwalls was released, featuring the smash hit single “Not Pretty Enough”, which also hit #1 on the ARIA Singles chart at the same time, a first for any Australian artist. This show will feature many of those albums songs in celebration of the milestone alongside all her crowd favourites.
Tom Busby (hailing from Queensland, Australia) and Jeremy Marou (from the beautiful Torres Strait Islands) have been playing music together for over a decade since their initial music connection at a pub in Rockhampton. There’s a potent chemistry that drives Busby Marou, and it is that unwritten agenda, a simple intangible understanding between them, that they will continue to drive into the exciting new chapter in their remarkable career. Busby Marou have gained the reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working live bands best known for their distinctly Australian storytelling and gifted musicianship. Onstage, the intertwining of vocal interplay of two lifelong mates.
