Courtney Barnett – Down to Earth Australian Singer Songwriter

Courtney Barnett hit big with her first full album release back in 2015 and with good reason.  She is a singer, songwriter, guitarist who can infuse ordinary events with ironic meaning.  It isn’t about her singing.  She isn’t a big singer, she is more or a half-singing, rambling storyteller.  Her music is straightforward and musical rock and roll with an occasional rough edge. Her attitude is also straightforward with an occasional rough-edge.  She’s down to earth in the sense that you can easily imagine she is someone who lives in an apartment building trying to grow tomatoes in a window box.  Her Australian accent adds an attractive aspect and all in all she is great fun to listen to.  After you listen to this song check out “Avant Gardener” where she is singing about trying to grow tomatoes.
