In 2000, Kasey Chambers emerged as Australia’s first successful country-to-rock crossover female singer.  Released in May 1999, The Captain initially won Kasey the 1999 ARIA award for Best Country Album and, at the 2000 awards, earned her Best Female Artist. With double platinum sales at home in Australia, Kasey spent the latter part of 2000 following up enthusiastic reviews for her album internationally. She also spent time touring the U.S. with Lucinda Williams and playing gigs in her native land with Emmylou Harris. She was in the studio as well; with her brother Nash at the production board once again, Chambers delivered another sonic beauty with 2002’s Barricades & Brickwalls. The album was a multi-platinum success in Australia and significantly raised her profile in the United States, earning her enthusiastic reviews and much better sales than The Captain.   Chambers released her third solo disc, Wayward Angel, in the fall of 2004. The 14-song set gave Chambers her first number one album in Australia. Two years later, Chambers’ song “The Hard Way” was featured in an episode of the ABC adventure drama Lost. Also around this time, Chambers married longtime boyfriend and musical partner Shane Nicholson. Carnival, released in September 2006, included collaborations with Tim Rogers of You Am I and Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning.

In 2008 Chambers released the sparse and heavily acoustic Rattlin’ Bones, a collaboration with Nicholson. Little Kasey Chambers & the Lost Music appeared in 2009, followed by her sixth full-length album, Little Bird, in 2010. In 2012, Chambers released the covers album Storybook, as well as Wreck & Ruin, her second album with Nicholson. In August 2014, Chambers issued Bittersweet, which was her first solo effort in five years. It was also Chambers’ first album not produced with the participation of her brother Nash Chambers, with Kasey telling the press, “I wanted to have an experience making a record that I had never had before.”

In July 2015, Bittersweet received a belated U.S. release through Rounder Records, and in support Chambers embarked on a rare American tour.
In early 2017, Chambers released her 11th studio album, Dragonfly. An ambitious double set, Dragonfly included material from sessions produced by iconic Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly.  Dragonfly currently tops the charts in Australia with the number one ranking on the ARIA charts.
