About Courtney Barnett
Not many twenty-somethings are having the kind of success Courtney Barnett has been experiencing lately. The Australian described as a "standout performer" by both the New York Times and Rolling Stone has been riding a wave of critical acclaim since the release of her debut album in 2013.
Barnett, known for her rambling lyrics, started her own label in 2012. She's also signed to London-based indie Marathon Artists via a joint venture, and has recently signed a licensing agreement in North America with the indy label Mom + Pop. Not bad for a 26-year-old who put out records with her friends while holding down a night job bartending and waitressing at a Melbourne rock venue. Needless to say, she doesn't need the part-time jobs anymore.
It was last fall's "Avant Gardener," on which Barnett delivers an account of a severe asthma attack suffered in her front garden, that firmly established the songstress internationally. The song, which appears on her EP "How to Crave a Carrot Into a Rose," was named 'Best New Track' by Pitchfork Media in 2013. At the CMJ Music Marathon in October, Barnett was also hailed as a "breakout talent" by NPR.
Mom + Pop will re-release Barnett's "The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas" on vinyl and CD, with a goal of building relationships with indie retailers before the release of her full-length debut. Although no date has been announced, the official debut album is expected at some point this year, on the heels of Barnett playing the Coachella Music Festival.
