Five #1 albums (equalled only by Kylie Minogue and Olivia Newton-John), twelve studio albums over 25 years, three multi-platinum albums all produced by her brother Nash, and a contribution to Melbourne’s Australian Music Vault, Kasey Chambers is one of Australia’s most treasured music icons.

Now, Kasey Chambers will be the youngest female recipient to be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame at the 2018 ARIA Awards on Wednesday, 28th November. The ARIA Hall of Fame made its debut in 1988, and has seen 85 music names inducted so far.

Kasey Chambers said:

“I grew up learning to play music around a campfire in the outback of Australia with my family. Living in our car, hunting our own food and creating our own unique sound together that was always hundreds of miles away from any kind of audience. I never even dreamed that one day the music that I wrote and played would connect with so many people, let alone get me to a place where I received the phone call that I would be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame!! You could have knocked me over with a feather.

I am so proud to have been able to create the music I love in a way that has always felt so true and authentic to me and to have it reach so many people. To be recognised by ARIA through this award is one of the greatest honours I could possibly imagine and I am so humbled to get the chance on the night to share the journey this little country singer from the Nullabor has actually had. THANK YOU!.”

“On behalf of the ARIA Board, I am honoured to announce that Kasey Chambers will be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame. The longevity of her career is a testament to her enduring talent and artistry, with many timeless songs that have crossed generations of Aussie music fans.

She is a much-loved artist and I am sure that music fans all around the country will be very excited to see Kasey take her deserved place with the other icons of the Australian music industry at this year’s ARIA Awards.”
