Artist: Kasey Chambers
Song: “Lose Yourself” (Eminem cover)
Release Date: July 29, 2022

In Their Words: “Eminem has been one of my favourite songwriters for many years. We listen to a lot of him in our house. I’ve been mostly influenced in my life by writers who bravely put fearless emotion into lyrics and no one does that better than Eminem. I don’t really care too much about what genre music fits into, just that the sound comes from a real, authentic place from inside the artist. Eminem makes me feel things when I hear him. Not always the most comfortable things but I’m not sure that music is always meant to make us feel comfortable. I’ve had it in the back of my mind for years that I knew there was a version inside me somewhere of ‘Lose Yourself’ on a banjo (it took Covid lockdown to give me enough time to learn the lyrics properly and write a melody to it) that I wanted to play live but it was really just for the self-indulgent reason that I love the song so much. I had no idea that audiences would respond to it like they have. Something else takes over my body when I play it and I get completely lost in it. I can honestly say it’s the most I’ve ever connected to a performance of a cover song in my life.” — Kasey Chambers
