‘Goodbye John Smith’
Sometimes the most difficult thing in the world is simply telling it like it is.
So many people – in life and in music – skirt around the issue, refuse to get right to the heart of the matter. Perhaps they’re sparing others’ feelings – or perhaps they’re sparing their own.

With a debut EP in the works for early 2016, Barns Courtney is able to unveil new track ‘Goodbye John Smith’.
A subtle, piano-led hymnal, his careful delivery only seems to heighten the emotion of the lyric.
