Paste Magazine hailed Barns Courtney as “The Best of What’s Next” and noted, “There’s confidence. And then there’s the swaggering self-assurance displayed by raspy-throated…blues rocker Barns Courtney on his recent single ‘Fire,’ a swampy, Gospel-steeped stomper.” “Fire”has more than 12 million streams globally, with upwards of six million in the U.S., and the “Fire” video has more than 1.7 million views. The song has been tapped for national ads for the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack and BOSE Soundsport Wireless Headphones and for the FIFA 17 trailer.
“Glitter & Gold, which has more than 8.5 million streams worldwide, was praised by NME as a “gritty blues stomper.”The official video for “Glitter & Gold” can be viewed HERE

Baeble Music highlighted the track “Hands” as one of its “Songs We Loved This Week” and observed, “Courtney has that something that you just don’t get to hear enough of anymore.”

Barns Courtneywas living in the U.K., working part-time at a computer store and sleeping in a car, when his song “Glitter & Gold” went viral, climbing to #1 on the Spotify UK Viral Chart. He has opened for The Who at London’s Wembley Stadium and has also supported Ed Sheeran, Elle King, Blur, Fitz and The Tantrums, Tom Odell and The Libertines.
