Biography

Active: 2010s
Country Of origin: England

A British singer/songwriter who splits the difference between Ed Sheeran's sensitivity, the big-footed stomp of early Mumford & Sons, and a keen moodiness, Barns Courtney received a heavy boost in 2015 when his song "Fire" appeared on the soundtrack to the Bradley Cooper vehicle Burnt. Prior to that break, the singer/songwriter -- born Barnaby George Courtney -- had led a pair of indie bands, SleeperCell and Dive Bella Dive. Courtney then toured as a singer/songwriter, opening for Libertine Carl Barat on a solo jaunt and Ed Sheeran on a North American tour, but he paid the bills by working at PC World. He signed with Virgin, and "Fire" made its way to the production circles of Burnt; it was selected for the soundtrack, with a second single, "Glitter and Gold," appearing around the same time. Before the release of his first full-length album, Courtney issued the Dull Drums EP in early 2017. The album -- titled The Attractions of Youth -- arrived later that fall, produced and engineered with help from former Dive Bella Dive bandmate Sam Bartle. February 2018 saw the release of the single "Sinners," which was co-written with Carl Barat. A pair of songs, "99" and "Good Thing," followed six months later. Courtney returned in May 2019 with the single "You and I." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine~ Rovi
