Welcome to the journey of Cupid's Heart- the duo that is out to win yours!
A combination of the unruly and the refined, Cupid’s Heart uses cello, electric guitar, drum machine, and low female vocals for a grungy take on alt-rock that fits them like a baggy sweater. Sonically described by Scott Roos of North Sask Music Zine as “Chrissie Hynde Pretenders vibes with a pinch of Nirvana”, Cupid’s Heart expresses some of the complexities that go along with love and life, and does so from a queer female perspective. The duo, composed of Emma Jean and Stacey Dunn, met on an online dating app in 2022 and began Cupid's Heart in Regina, SK. The band is currently based in the Northern community of Prince Albert, SK, a small city hovering on the edge of Saskatchewan’s Boreal wilderness.
Cupid’s Heart released their debut EP, Atrium in July 2023, and has seen airplay on multiple community and college radio stations across Canada. They have played multiple out of province shows, in addition to 50 plus shows played since forming in May of 2022. Cupid's Heart is proud to represent Stacey's Indigenous heritage, and were honored when 2023 also saw the band nominated for a SaskMusic Award in the Contemporary Indigenous Artist of the Year category. They continue to carry their energetic and captivating momentum into 2024.
They hope to see you at a show someday soon!
