Kasey Chambers announced to her manager, record company and fans that there wouldn’t be a new album for at least another year. Then the songs came rushing out – 14 diverse compositions, all delivered fully formed, completed within a few hectic weeks. During this time, Kasey also performed as opening act through Lyle Lovett’s Australasian tour. It was a mercurial creative period, the most exciting and intensive outpouring of her career: so much joyous, inspired music, brimming with irresistible energy and verve. “This album certainly took me by surprise, but I didn’t question where these songs came from; they just arrived.” Such spontaneous creativity demanded immediate action; her manager and brother Nash Chambers, agreed, and thus the Little Bird album was swiftly born.
