Homeskool Prom Records / Warner Music Canada recording artist Courage My Love have been pegged as one of the Top 100 Bands To Watch in 2012 in the April issue of Alternative Press Magazine. The Kitchener, Ontario-based band has been winning a legion of fans since even before the October 2011 release of their debut EP for now.

Courage My Love are twin sisters Mercedes Arn-Horn (guitars/vocals), Phoenix Arn-Horn (drums/vocals) and David Blake-Dickson (bass/vocals). They were discovered in a local Battle of the bands contest and have since cut their teeth and built their audience with fiery live performances. They have torn up the stages of a number of key festivals like the Vans Warped Tour, NXNE and Canadian Music Week while playing alongside the likes of Paramore, Tokyo Police Club and A Day To Remember. Courage My Love recently became the youngest band ever to make it into the finals at the Indie Week Music Festival not once, but two years in a row.

Courage My Love have also produced a number of popular broadcast and viral videos (over 1.2 million views on the band’s youtube channel) as well as the podcast series, “Homeskool Detention” that can be heard on their website, The band is currently in the final stages of editing their latest music video, “Anchors Make Good Shoes (If You Have Issues)” which features the twins in a good ol’fashioned barroom shootout.
