Courtney Barnett has taken a page from the playbook of bands like Phish and the Grateful Dead with the launch of her own live music online archive.
Announced on Tuesday, Barnett’s new online database will look to be a one-stop-shop for the Australian guitarist and singer’s archived live content, and will include a mix of posters, concert photos, videos, live audio, and more that she’s been able to collect over the years. The database already includes audio from her April 2014 studio performance at Electric Lady Studios, video of her February 2014 performance of “Pedestrian At Best” at the Ace Hotel in London, a mix of live and backstage photos from various tours, her entire seaside performance of Lotta Sea Lice songs alongside Kurt Vile in 2017, and much more.
Most of the live video content is sourced from YouTube, but fans will now be able to find Barnett’s performances in one place rather than scouring the bowels of the internet.
Barnett first started to release her music commercially in 2012, but began to reach international audiences and build a global fanbase following the output of her The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas in 2013, and Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit in 2015.

Last year, Barnett embarked on her first-ever solo concert tour of the United States with a run of intimate performances throughout January and early February prior to the shutdown of the live events.
