Young poet, seeker, and obsessive punk show-goer Jackie hopped into the back of a van to meet guitarist Ryan Stanley in June, 2003. She heard his solo record and fell in love. When at last they met outside of an all-ages punk rock show in Mississauga, Ontario, the Earth shattered. As they joined hands, the cosmos imploded. When they kissed, it rebuilt itself...and so began their shared life of immersion in music and art. In 2007, they released their first album and began a 13 year journey of touring across Canada together and recording over a dozen releases as a self-produced guitar-and-drum duo. Not only do they sing about heavy societal and individual problems, but also their solutions. Cursed Arrows have more recently added a powerful live rhythm section to the mix, expanding their sound into a more sprawling, grinding, exploratory beast. They've lived in minivans and haunted basements, appeared on hit TV shows, and have each had their own near death experiences. Their music seeks to translate and transmute their love and humanity into a listenable format. They live with their son, Fox, in close proximity to the wilderness of Central Ontario, Canada.
