Courtney, vocalist and guitarist for Real Estate, will release his solo debut, Many Moons, later this month with 10 tracks of warmly written, yearning tunes that Courtney admits, "document a transition into family life and fatherhood."
Courtney, who has already released a pair of songs from the new album - “Vestiges” and “Northern Highway” - channels the familiar guitar-based sound characteristic of his band, while injecting a mature and sensible voice on, "Airport Bar." The track is dense with ambient, guitar-picked melodies and hooks; easy listening, but having the ability to carry the listener away in it's tasteful twang, and Courtney's gentle acoustic strums that permeate the nearly 4-minute pop song.
