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 had led a band called SleeperCell. Once SleeperCell split, Courtney continued to tour as a singer/songwriter, opening for Libertine Carl Barât on a solo jaunt and Ed Sheeran on a North American tour. He signed with Virgin, and "Fire" made its way to the production circles of Burnt and was selected for the film's soundtrack. A second single, "Glitter and Gold," appeared around the same time. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
