Representing the far-reaching influence of American country music, Australian singer-songwriters Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson perform songs from their first release as a duo, Rattlin' Bones.

Chambers grew up with the country music her father played for her, and grew to be a star in her homeland of Australia with roots-oriented albums such as The Captain, her commercial breakthrough. It was in her father's group The Dead Ringer Band that Chambers began her singing career before stepping out on her own; her father Bill joins the duo in this performance on mandolin and dobro.

With her subsequent records enjoying platinum sales and prompting a U.S. tour with Lucinda Williams, Chambers later married Shane Nicholson of the group Pretty Violet Stain. With Rattlin' Bones, the duo has made its first record together, a sparse and acoustic set showcasing Chambers and Nicholson's rich harmonies and sharp songwriting.
