About the event

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 has lived a life in the world of entertainment most will never experience or dream of! The Aussie girl from the coal works of Newcastle uprooted herself at 17 years old and moved for six years to Nashville TN (USA) where she gained a deep knowledge of country/roots/folk history as well as touring extensively and releasing top 40 Billboard hits.

“She’s The Real Deal” is what Elton John proclaimed about Catherine Britt when he discovered her at the tender age of 17 years old. He found her debut album “Dusty Smiles & Heartbreak Cures” while touring Australia in 2002.  Catherine met Elton John, at his request, at his last Sydney show and he took a stack of her albums back to the USA with him on tour and proceeded to give them out to every major record label in Nashville to told them they “have to sign this girl”. Catherine was then approached by a barrage of the major labels in Nashville but RCA Records were the first to fly her over to Nashville and offer her a record deal. Catherine moved to Nashville and signed to RCA Records at just 17 years old and also played on the Grand Ole Opry. She still holds the record for the youngest Australian to ever Grace the opry stage.
