Barns Courtney is a British folk pop and blues rock singer-songwriter from London. He won Artist Of The Year at the 2017 Sync Awards and was amongst a Rolling Stone list of 10 new artists you need to know. Barns Courtney is heavy on stomp and swagger, bringing to mind the primal thump of The White Stripes, the punk rock energy of the Sex Pistols, and a good dose of indie-rock edge and gospel. A vaguely grimy feel to the production, recalls the seedy but glittery intrigue of The Velvet Underground.
