Born in Ipswich, U.K., Barns Courtney spent most of his childhood in Seattle before returning to the U.K. at age 15. In 2015, the charismatic singer-songwriter released his first song, “Glitter And Gold,” that became a viral hit in the U.K.
Courtney is currently on a tour of North America that started with some well received SXSW showcases in Austin several weeks ago.
He is playing WXPN’s Free At Noon concert this Friday, April 8th. You can RSVP here for the show. The following day – Saturday, April 9th – he plays a show at MilkBoy.
Courtney is currently working on his debut album; listen to the upbeat, anthemic “Fire” below.
