She’s used to fly­ing vis­its, but Kasey Cham­bers says she’ll take some time out on the Gold Coast when she per­forms at Twin Towns

With her lat­est EP firmly un­der her belt, a new al­bum set to drop early next year and three kids to look af­ter, Kasey Cham­bers is busier than ever – and that’s just how she likes it.

“I like be­ing busy. I’m a nor­mal mum; some­times it gets too much and I get over­whelmed. I don’t al­ways do ev­ery­thing right but you just have to do the best you can. When I go out on tour I take my fam­ily with me so it doesn’t al­ways feel like work. I just write songs, make al­bums, and look af­ter my fam­ily,” Cham­bers says.

The EP, Ain’t No Lit­tle Girl, was re­leased in Au­gust and fea­tures four deeply per­sonal tracks in­spired by Cham­bers’ own life ex­pe­ri­ences.

“It’s a per­sonal jour­ney,” she says. “It’s a growth. It’s about own­ing who you are and find­ing in­ner strength.”

If We Had a Child is a stand­out track in which Cham­bers duets with fel­low coun­try muso and friend Keith Ur­ban. The pair have known each other for years, hav­ing per­formed at the Arias to­gether

“He’s a beau­ti­ful per­son and in­cred­i­bly down to earth,” Cham­bers says.

“(His suc­cess) is so well de­served; he’s a hard­work­ing and ex­tremely tal­ented artist. I’ve never heard any­one say a bad word about him. If he can be as suc­cess­ful as he his and still be so down to earth, does any­one else have the right to be an a***hole?”

Cham­bers says she sent If We Had a Child to Ur­ban and asked him to come on board, which he was all up for. While they’d rocked out on stage a num­ber of times, this was the first time they’d recorded any­thing to­gether.

Gold Coast au­di­ences can get a taste of the live ver­sion this week­end as Cham­bers – with spe­cial guests Vika and Linda and sup­port from Harry Hookey – take to the Twin Towns stage.

She says the show will con­sist largely of her big­gest hits (pos­si­bly a bit of True Colours in there per­haps?) with a smat­ter­ing of her new ma­te­rial thrown in too.

“I’m so ex­cited! I live on the Cen­tral Coast and nor­mally when we do a show we’re in and out pretty quickly, but this time around we’re com­ing up for a week and we’re go­ing to visit the theme parks and catch up with friends. It’s not just about the show,” Cham­bers says. Kasey Cham­bers, Twin Towns, Saturday
