Her fourth self-titled album has produced three #1 singles, multiple ARIA, APRA & CMAA Award nominations & a solo performance at the 2010 CMAA Awards that was hailed as the moment of the night. She joined Kimbra and Gotye in the top 3 in the 2011 Vanda & Young song writing competition, Australia’s most prestigious, with ‘Sweet Emmylou’ & was invited to showcase at the 2011 Americana Festival, which brought the likes of Buddy Miller and Gurf Morlix to the room, and performed on the acclaimed live radio show Music City Roots. In 2011 Catherine joined the Country Music Channel as the host of ‘Alt Country’ & hosts her own weekly Alt Country radio program.
Catherine has just completed recording her fifth studio album with co-producer with Bill Chambers and engineer Fred Remmert (Shawn Colvin, Kevin Welch, Dixie Chicks) in Austin, Texas. It will be released in 2012. In January 2012 Catherine won her 2nd CMAA Award for Single of the Year with Sweet Emmylou.
