In 2011, they won the award for Best Indie Group. The band makes their stop at Threadgill's hot on the heels of their tour with indie Canadian big shots, Tegan and Sara.

This alternative-Rock band from Austin, Texas, creates rich, inspiring soundscapes with their ascending harmonies and radiant guitars. After their national television debut on The Vampire Diaries, Courrier's emotional anthem "Between" raced up the iTunes alternative chart, peaking at #52. Their new single, "Love is a Fire," from their forthcoming sophomore record produced by Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam), releases to radio this summer and is sure to ignite the attention of listeners worldwide. The title of Courrier’s first studio release, Like the Cold of Snow in the Time of Harvest, is a fitting description of the boys from Austin, Texas. Like a new wind in an often dry and monotonous music ”business,” Courrier’s music is refreshing indeed.
