What's Going on~

KCOD Mini Documentary 

I am thrilled and honored to be able to take part in the Intro To Film Class at College of The Desert (COD). Their very talented instructor Toni Bakal is having her class do 5 mini documentaries  of local female musicians and I get to be one of them!  COD's Student Film Festival will be showcasing the Doc on May 19th in Palm Springs and then KCOD will be airing on their website and social media pages.  I am a bit of a music documentary fiend, so to be able to tell my story on this medium is extra special to me.  The team that handled my doc were incredible! Looking forward to the debut!



I've been nominated in 4 categories this year for the 2019 Coachella Valley Music Awards

Best Female Vocalist

Best Singer/Songwriter

Best Folk/Americana

I do interviews from time to time and I am always asked the same question: Who are you influenced by? An incredibly great question, however, I always feel like I never answer it correctly.  I seem to pick 1-3 artists or bands and come to a loss for words.  After every interview I can think of so many band and artists that have absolutely shaped me and could not possibly recognize them all in one sitting.  This blog is all about that.  I wanted to publicly document, praise and thank the following artists and bands that have been brave and excellent and have been a part of my development.  This may take awhile ;) 



The Beatles

Brian Wilson


Michael Jackson

Cyndi Lauper


Dolly Parton

Depeche Mode


Glass Tiger

Phil Collins

Pat Benatar

The Go Go's

Belinda Carlisle

The Everly Brothers

New Order


Aretha Franklin

Ludwig Van Beethoven

Frederic Chopin

Claude Debussy

Patty Griffin

Sarah McLachlan


I am tired...to be continued;)



10,000 Maniacs


Skid Row

Guns n Roses






Travelling and good things happening! 

Hey everyone!

Its been awhile since I've blogged and I forgot to update our tour shenanigans here on the site as we primarily shared everything on FB. I will be sure to post some pics this week.   Allen and I had a blast on tour and it went really well.  We made some new fans and friends and look forward to another tour next year, probably Utah being one of our destinations.  As of now, I am in Europe, I have been on a little solo journey to do some things I have never done and see some things I have never seen.  YOLO right? My journey started in NYC, which is my favorite city in the world.  As usual, I had a blast there and met some new people and heard some great Jazz.  My next stop was London. It is a great city, I hung out in SOHO and saw Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, disappointed I didn't make Abbey Road, but I did get to do a tour of Shakespeare's Globe and hang out on the South Bank.  Next was the island of Crete in Greece, the cause of all this wanderlust.  A former student of mine, and someone I call friend as well, invited me to come to her wedding there.  I couldn't say no to the opportunity and decided to make this my epic first overseas journey.  Being that Crete was so close to Italy, I thought "why not?".  I have always wanted to go to Italy and figured Rome would be a great starter city.  I absolutely adored Crete and Rome.  I love the people, the languages and the architecture.  I had a cute cat who liked to keep me company at my hotel in Italy, he was adorable!  I got up early this morning and headed to Termini Station to take a train to the airport to get to my final destination before returning home, which is Paris.    I am currently in an internet cafe in Pisa with many hours to kill before my plane leaves, so I figured I would get caught up on some things. 


So, a few things happening:


My new record COURTNEY CHAMBERS LIVE is available now! It will be available in the online store soon, but in the meantime, just message me to purchase a copy.  It will be available on itunes, amazon and CDbaby.com as well.

Belinda Carlisle's new record "Wilder Shores"  is due to be released September 29th!!  I had the honor of playing acoustic guitar on her new album, she is a legend and classy lady, not to mention, one of my vocal heroines.  Turns out the 30th Anniversary edition of "Heaven is A Place on Earth" will be released the same day!

AUGUST 19th! I have my next show with my band at Willie Boys in Morongo Valley, we are playing on the bill with 5th Town!

October 7th&8th: I will be performing at the inaugural Desert Oasis Festival!!!  I am thrilled and beside myself to be on this bill and perform at this venue, The Empire Polo Grounds! The 2 day lineup includes: Damien Marley, Warren G, Moziaq, Rebelution, Reel Big Fish, Los Lobos, E-40, The Green, Kinky, Spankshaft, Inner Circle, Fishbone, Murs, JBoog, Steel Pulse and More!!!  I'll be performing Oct 7 at 4pm!!!
