Courtney Barnett’s debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit has been certified with ARIA Gold Sales in Australia.

This achievement follows on from news earlier this month that she had been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

“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!” Courtney says about her nomination.

Courtney is now preparing for an Australian tour which will see her play festival appearances at Woodford Folk Festival, Falls Festival, Southbound, Sugar Mountain and Twilight at Taronga.

Unfortunately Courtney will be bypassing Adelaide but we will keep you posted if she decides to come our way!
