Catherine Britt has a voice that instantly gets your attention… but unlike others, it is the craftsmanship of this singer/songwriter who unashamedly boasts a worthy story to tell that truly keeps her audience enthralled.
She’s lived a life in the world of entertainment most could only dream of. The archetypal Aussie girl from the coal works of Newcastle uprooted herself at 17 years old and moved to Nashville TN (USA) for six years where she gained a deep knowledge of country/roots/folk history as well as touring extensively and releasing top 40 Billboard hits. How did this happen? Well, the story is that a certain Elton John (yes, the Sir Elton John) heard Catherine during one of his Australian tours in the early 2000s. So impressed with Catherine, that he took her albums back to America with him and helped get a deal with RCA Records.
Since then, Catherine’s talent has seen her tour, perform and record with some of music’s most respected names including Kasey Chambers, Paul Kelly, Sir Elton John, Steve Earle, Dolly Parton, Don McLean, Chris Isaak, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Guy Clark and Keith Urban to name but a few. Over the course of her career Catherine has collected a host of accolades, a legion of fans and a mantel of awards including the country industry’s highest honours. Her most recent include, 2016 Female Artist of the Year, 2017 Vocal Collaboration of The Year as well as an APRA Award and CMC Artist of the Year nominations.
Catherine’s new album is entitled Home Truths. They’re the best truths – direct, personal, and from the heart. Just the way Catherine sings.
