Nash CHAMBERS (1998)

Nash Cambers

1974 – Born on the 8th of May

1976 - Three weeks after Kasey was born his parents Bill and Diane Chambers took Kasey and Nash into the Australian Nullarbor plain on what was meant to be a working holiday hunting foxes and selling the pelts – this lasted for nine years.

The family would spend seven or eight months of the year on the Nullarbor, resupplying themselves from the Indian Pacific train. The rest of the year, the hot months, the family spent at a small South Australian fishing village. Each night in a different spot on that vast Australian landmark Bill and Diane passed on their love of country music and homeschooled their children by the glow of the campfire, under the stars.

In 1986 the family returned to "civilisation" so that Bill and Diane could pick up interrupted music careers and the children could attend secondary school and have friends their own age. It also meant that they were exposed to other music.

The Chambers had started playing pubs and clubs again and before long had become a group.  First Kasey joined them as lead singer, then Nash, and they became known as the Dead Ringer Band (as Kasey and Nash looked so like their parents).

1992 the family had become full-time musicians, playing to city audiences as well as heading back out into the countryside.

During the '90s the Dead Ringer Band members, released seven CDs and collectively earned two ARIA's, five MO Awards and seven Gold Guitars. The Dead Ringer Band’s albums were released on the “Massive” label.
