Dragonfly is the eleventh studio album by Australian country singer-songwriter Kasey Chambers, released in January 2017 via Warner Bros. Records.

Since releasing her debut album in 2000, Kasey Chambers has quietly but firmly established herself as one of the strongest and most consistent singer/songwriters to emerge in the new millennium. Chambers is little more than a cult figure in the United States, but she's a star and a critical favorite in Australia, and she's recorded an impressive body of work that uses country and folk as its jumping-off point, but moves in a rich spectrum of creative directions.

In the truest sense, all of her work has been eclectic and ambitious, but the scope and style of Dragonfly really do set it apart from her previous work. Country and folk influences still dominate this set, but Dragonfly also contains some of the strongest and most full-bodied rock & roll Chambers has delivered in the studio, and even numbers like the banjo-led gospel number "Golden Rail" stomp with the force of a full-on rock band.

There's an unpretentious but artful touch to the arrangements of "Jonestown", "This Is Going To Be A Long Year", "Ain't No Little Girl", and the title cut, and once again, Chambers has written a number of powerful, strikingly personal, and deeply human songs about love, life, and the beauties and flaws of the human race.

As Chambers takes on the traditional folk structures of "Romeo And Juliet", the playful talking blues of "Talking Baby Blues”, the lean and sinewy blues changes of "You Ain't Worth Suffering For", the dramatic hard rock of "If I Died", and the high-spirited acoustic rock of "Hey", her voice emotionally inhabits each number with intelligence, passion, and a gift for projecting her characters that would be the envy of most any actor. Keith Urban delivers a fine, deeply felt duet with Chambers on "If We Had A Child" which might help that "lack of visibility in the United States" thing.

The first half of Dragonfly was produced by celebrated Aussie songwriter Paul Kelly, and he draws excellent performances from Chambers, but the second half, with Kasey's sibling and frequent collaborator Nash Chambers behind the controls, shows she doesn't need new faces on board to prompt her into first-class work.

Bold and heartfelt from first song to last, Dragonfly demonstrates Kasey Chambers isn't running out of ideas or inspiration anytime soon, and it's a triumph from a singular talent.

Check out the tracks: “Ain’t No Little Girl”; "Pompeii"; "Romeo & Juliet"; "Hey"; "If We Had A Child"; "The Devil's Wheel" and “Satellite”.

This double album 2LP record set is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Australia.
