Hey folks! This is an article to inspire you. See beyond your own nose!

It is about Barns Courtney, a British singer, songwriter, and musician who has already generated over $1 million – without even publishing his own album! How does this work?

Courtney only creates synchronization music. These songs are very popular and resided longer than a year!

One prime example is Courtney’s song “Fire” (2015), which was used in Harvey Weinstein’s film “Burnt”. This was his first big step in his career and he climbed up on Top 3 on Triple-A radio in the US – for 52 weeks! In Fact, this song was also used in many subsequent famous TV shows (e.g. Ellen). Additionally, video games such as FIFA 17 by EA Sports, includes his song “Hobo Rocket” and his works have also appeared in a variety of advertisements.

In 2015, SONGS Music Publishing signed Courtney. He is now working on his first album.
