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 but shortened to the performing name of Barns — had led a band called SleeperCell, a British indie group that never got very far. Once SleeperCell split, Courtney continued to tour 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; and 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.
