SMOOTH SAILING: Killarney teen Nancie Schipper is launching her album Haunted House on Sunday, but said she might focus on studies for a few years before doing a follow-up.NOT every musician gets Shane Howard andBill Chambers to play on their debut album.
But that’s the level of attention 15-year-old Killarney singer-songwriter Nancie Schipper is getting.
Howard and Chambers are just two of the talented musos she called on to play on Haunted House; the liner notes read like a veritable who’s who of south-west musicians –Heidi Gass, Mark Halliwell, Tom Richardson, Cooper Lower, Matt Hewson, Pete Birdand Marcia Howard are among the names playing on the album.
Schipper met Bill Chambersat a Kasey Chambers concert, and the country music patriarch called Schipper a few days laterand said he’d like to do some guitarwork on a couple of songs.
As for Howard, he was happy to addguitar to an acoustic cover of his own song Solid Rock.
“My dad always used to play Solid Rock on the record player and I hated it for a years but I listened to it again one day and I thought ‘I can make an acoustic cover of that’,” Schipper said.
“I liked it so much I thought it should be on the album. I showed Shane the guide vocals as we started recording and he said he could do some guitarwork on it.”
Recorded over 12 months at Bird’s Yelp Studios in Warrnambool, Haunted Housewas made under the watchful eye of multi-instrumentalist Gass, who Schipper calleda great mentor.
“She’s a really great musician,” Schipper said.
“I’ve been having lessons with her for nearly eight years –before I started I couldn’t even sing in tune.
“The big thing she taught me (in the studio) was that if you’re not happy with it (then and there), chances are you’re not going to be happy it in 10 years, so it’s better to go back and redo it.”
Gass plays about 10 instruments on the album and helped shape many of the songs, which Schipper wrote over the past couple of years.
Schipper will make head to the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January to play with Bill Chambers, but in the meantime she will be playing plenty of gigs around the south-west, including a full band launch on Sunday at Highline Bar & Lounge in Warrnambool from 2pm.
Kayla Dwyer and Cooper Lower will support Schipper.
