Courtney Barnett

Since the release of her debut full-length Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, mixing deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. Rolling Stone praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around-at any level, in any genre”. Barnett has won 4 ARIA Awards, the prestigious Australian Music Prize and APRA’s Australian Songwriter Of The Year Award. She has been nominated for a Grammy and a Brit Award and also won The USA Independent Music Association’s Libera Award. She’s topped it all off with a performances on The Ellen Degeneres Show, three appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and the season finale of Saturday Night Live.

2017 saw the release of the wonderful album Lotta Sea Lice, a collaboration album with Kurt Vile and a gorgeous place-holder while we await the release of her second full-length in 2018.
