Melbourne-based singer Courtney Barnett creates folky garage rock, infused with her dry millennial wit. She first came to international attention in 2013 with the release of her single “Avant Gardener,” a deadpan story of a slacker’s malaise and yard work-induced panic attack. Two years later, after the release of her debut studio album, “Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit,” Courtney earned a Grammy nod for Best New Artist. Courtney has since released four more albums, including 2017’s “Lotta Sea Lice,” a collaboration with Kurt Vile. In 2018, WePresent produced a documentary titled “Friends of Wonder” about Courtney, Kurt, and the community of the Loew's Jersey Theater. The film was directed and edited by Kurt Vincent and Irene Chin.
