Australia’s favourite female reggae artist Claire Cottone (aka CC) from Brisbane/Byron Bay 5-piece CC The Cat launched her new blog Freedom Junkie this month.
It details her journey as an artist and shares her inspirational wisdom. “I have a chronic affliction little understood by scientists, doctors, most parents, people at extended family gatherings, and Centrelink,” she writes in her first blog post. “I am an Artaholic. Totally addicted to the creation of Art to the sacrifice of all else.” As well as being busy with her blog, CC has a heap of gigs lined up – both with her band (including two big sets at Island Vibe Festival) and solo.
