Modern day voice and guitar man Barns Courtney is on an excitingly unexpected journey. His first track ‘Glitter & Gold’ was dropped unceremoniously on Soundcloud in September, where, with its hybrid of gospel-blues, Westerns soundtrack, the marching hip hop of Kanye’s ‘Jesus Walks’, and Barns’ honey & sand delivery, it charged out of the gate with over forty thousand plays on Soundcloud and an addition to the BBC Introducing Playlist.
With a debut EP in the works for early next year, abounding excitement for his first offering in ‘Glitter And Gold’ and early fans clambering for the identity of the unheralded yet fiery opener for Ed Sheeran and The Libertines, the new journey of Barns Courtney is one well worth following.
