NCMA and Cat's Cradle Present
Courtney Barnett is one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-songwriter who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. She has won awards in her home of Australia as well as Grammy and BRIT nominations.
After the release of Barnett’s debut album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Think, a Rolling Stone writer praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around.” Her wonderful Lotta Sea Lice (2017) is an introspective, gorgeous album of duets with Kurt Vile, followed by her world-weary-but-fierce sophomore solo album, Tell Me How You Really Feel (2018).
Accompanied by her own face-melting guitar and one of the best rhythm sections in rock, her increasingly unusual song structures, timbres. and moods hint at future ambition. Her glorious, feedback-heavy live show has eviscerated audiences on five continents.
