Courage My Love and Crystalyne combine forces
Courage My Love is from Kitchener and has been building a solid fan base in the last year or two. The pop-punk triage of two twin sisters, one guy, meld together to create an ultimately uplifting and unified band. On vocals and guitar is Mercedes Arn-Horn and her sister Phoenix on the skins, joined by the shy Brandon Lockwood on bass and vocals.
Although the band is small in stature, they more than compensate for their lack of size with an abundance of sounds and heart on stage. They have the charisma to engage the crowd and the look to go along with their poppy personas.
Becoming, the band’s new EP, produced by Chris Perry in Toronto, is eight solid tracks that epitomize Courage My Love , and were all written during a period of exciting changes in their lives.
“Our first EP For Now came out when we were 17,” said Mercedes. “When you’re our age, a lot can happen in two years.”
Supported on the bill by Toronto’s own Crystalyne, another female-fronted rock quartet. Since their formation in 2011, have seen huge commercial and touring success with their first EP Navigate, and the band is now working with Pledge Music Canada to fund their second EP The Remedy.
Having already made appearances at Vans Warped Tour and now on a eastern Canada tour, the band is setting itself up for a wave of growth and expansion. Lead singer for the band, Marissa Dattoli, is a shy but sweet girl with a lot of stage presence and strong passion for her music. Her unique voice makes Crystalyne a pleasure to listen to.
The show will be the official release party for their upcoming EP, which has been highly anticipated for the last year since they released Navigate.
