The past year has been nothing short of extraordinary for the British troubadour. His debut album The Attractions Of Youth, has racked up over 200,000 album sales to date, his arsenal of songs have struck a massive quarter of a billion worldwide streams, and his YouTube channel has caught light in the form 25 million views.
After sold-out UK tours including venues such as London’s Camden Dingwalls and Scala, the number of successes over the last 18 months have also included winning a ‘Sync Artist Of The Year’ award at Music Week’s Sync Awards beating the likes of Rag & Bone Man and Ellie Goulding to the post. He’s been tipped as One To Watch by Rolling Stone and completed live TV performances on James Corden’s Late Late Show (watch HERE) and Conan O’Brien (watch HERE), as well as rave reviews from Reading Festival, SXSW, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and his support slots with both Blur and The Libertines.
Barns Courtney has already experienced more highs and lows than most artists could wish to encounter in an entire lifetime. His is a story of family turmoil, bad record industry deals, homelessness, serendipitous meetings with movie moguls and sheer talent and hard work winning out against the odds.
Alongside the new single, Barns is stepping things up in the live arena, embarking upon his highest profile UK headline tour to date this November. With eight shows across the UK, including a night at London’s Heaven and further dates in Europe. Glasgow and Amsterdam are now both sold out.
Now putting the finishing touches to his second album, this is Barns’ time. With a strong reception for his debut, he is now looking ahead to unleashing his brazen sound on as many people as possible.
