You may have caught Bill Chambers at a Poss house show last year. Well, he's back again with his newest record, 1952. Come out and enjoy a night of folk and country music.
Bill Chambers is an Australian Country musician and former member of the Dead Ringer Band. His album Sleeping with the Blues and Cold Trail were nominated for a 2003 and a 2016 ARIA Award for Best Country Album.
Chambers was born in Southend, South Australia and married his wife Diane at age 20. Together they had 2 children, Nash and country singer-songwriter Kasey Chambers. Chambers and Diane started playing gigs together and soon were joined by Kasey and then Nash. The four piece band became known as the Dead Ringer Band. His marriage later got separated and in 1998 Chambers took a break, ending the band. He moved to Sydney, started producing records, started a record label, Reckless Records, then reunited with his family to support Kasey's solo career.
In 1999 he released a duo album with Audrey Auld (as Bill & Audrey) called Looking Back to See. In 2002 Chambers released a solo album called Sleeping with the Blues and continued as a solo artist with Frozen Ground, Drifting South, Live at the Pub Tamworth and Cold Trail.
His latest album is called 1952 (January 2019) and is inspired by the late, great Hank Williams.
