Listen closely and you’ll hear a poignant note behind the sunny, optimistic sound of Little Bird, as Kasey reflects on a young woman’s insecurities.
“I started remembering how I felt when I wrote Not Pretty Enough and comparing it to how I feel now. I was wondering how that sentiment would come out if I revisited it,” says Kasey. “I still have moments like that, of feeling insecure and unsure, but I feel differently about that now. I feel stronger and more powerful, not willing to compromise so much.
“This is like the strong, secure version of Pretty Enough.”
Little Bird follows Kasey’s success in 2009 with “Kasey Chambers, Poppa Bill and The Little Hillbillies.” Released in November through Liberation.
This project included Kasey’ s first children’s book and joint effort Album with her Dad Bill, which also sees the debut of a new generation of Chambers singer/songwriters.
