Courtney Barnett’s debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit has beencertified with ARIA Gold Sales in Australia.
This follows on from news earlier this month that she had been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Of the nomination Barnett says:
“It’s an honour to be recognised amongst so many great artists on such a huge scale and it’s well beyond anything I ever imagined would happen off the back of my first album. It’s also really cool to see fellow Australians Tame Impala and Hiatus Kaiyote nominated too!”
Barnett is now preparing for a massive summer of touring in Australia which will see her play festival appearances at Woodford Folk Festival, Falls Festival, Southbound, Sugar Mountain & Twilight at Taronga.
There are just a handful of tickets left for her Perth & Melbourne headline shows, with Sydney already sold out. Details here

Oh Pep! (Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs) first met at the Victorian College Of The Arts where they studied Jazz and Classical music respectively. Drawn together by a shared love of traditional music they dived into the international folk world, winning awards at Folk Alliance Australia and flooring audiences at Americana Music Festival and CMJ.
