Artist Spotlight | Barns Courtney

You’ve probably heard his music somewhere. Whether its been in the background of an Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown advertisement, in the opening of a Suits episode or as the opening act for Ed Sheeran, Barns Courtney is well on the music scene and this is just the beginning.

His bluesy vintage rock influence paired with his powerful, rugged vocals showcases a fiery passion that seems to mirror the sound of Young The Giant. But, let’s not make comparisons, the British singer-songwriter is in a league of his own, blazing a new path for rock in a music world consumed by house, trap, and hip-hop.

Courtney’s new debut album, The Attractions of Youth proves to be the best way to introduce one’s self to the industry, with a gritty, rebellious sound that highlights his creativity, yet truly reflects the influence of artists such as The Velvet Underground, Coldplay, and David Bowie. Based on his robust and soulful tone and resonating lyrics, it’s clear Barns Courtney is an artist to watch and a breath of fresh air for rock music lovers everywhere.
