When you look at modern country music you can identify a diverse range of styles that have evolved from the traditional roots form. From pop country to bush ballads, acoustic folk-leaning songs to rousing country rock and the polymorphic blend of Americana. One Australian artist that can lay claim to all of these strains is Catherine Britt, a songwriter who has already packed a respected and highly acclaimed career into her first two decades as a recording artist.
Life has a way of throwing curveballs, both good and bad, and the last four years have seen Catherine fight and win a battle with breast cancer, marry her husband James and, give birth to their first child Hank with another one on the way. Out of those highs and lows comes her seventh studio album Catherine Britt & The Cold Cold Hearts, an album that rattles and rolls with life, energy and honest, autobiographical songwriting.
Catherine Britt will be performing songs from her Ep released in 1999 right through her 20 year career, including all seven studio albums and even some b-sides and rarities. It will be a very special evening seeing Catherine in her element with just her guitar and her songs, stripping it back to where it all began, with the story and the song.
