Random Weekend Post: Happy Birthday Kasey Chambers

Friday was the birthday of Australian singer/songwriter Kasey Chambers. Regular readers don’t need me to tell them how big of a role Chambers played in my immersion in the world of Americana music. Just in case though… this is everything I’ve ever written about her.

I don’t know that I’d be doing this if I hadn’t heard her voice almost a decade ago. I just wanted to say Happy Birthday by sharing a couple of videos.

And now for something completely different…

This is a clip from a St. Louis news broadcast from the late 1970’s. Take notice of the gentleman who appears roughly 90 seconds into the clip. It’s none other than R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe. Thanks to USA Today’s Pop Candy blog for sharing this earlier this week.
