Catherine Britt, a songwriter who has already packed a respected and highly acclaimed career into her first two decades as a recording artist, now begins a new chapter with the forthcoming release of her seventh studio album, Catherine Britt & The Cold Cold Hearts together with band members Michael Muchow & Andy Toombs.
The last three years have seen Catherine fight and win a battle with breast cancer, marry her husband James and most recently, give birth to their first child.
Out of those highs and lows was born Catherine Britt & The Cold Cold Hearts, an album that rattles and rolls with life, energy and honest, autobiographical songwriting.
From Newcastle to Nashville, Catherine made the move to the home of country music at just 17 years old. It proved to be a brave decision that gave her immeasurable experience as a musician, insight into the machinations of the industry and a contract with the legendary RCA Records.
Upon returning to Australia in 2009, Catherine set about recording her debut full-length album Dusty Smiles and Heartbreak Cures, the first of five consecutive albums nominated for Album Of The Year at the CMAA (Country Music Awards of Australia). The accolades didn’t stop there. Along the way, she has received five Golden Guitar Awards, the CMA Global Artist Of The Year award in 2010 and six ARIA Award nominations for Best Country Album.
The critical acclaim for her albums and reputation as a performer has seen Catherine tour and perform with some of the biggest names in music, including Sir Elton John, Don McLean, Kasey Chambers, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Chris Isaak and Keith Urban.
