Drawing inspiration from their hometowns in central and northern Alberta, Canada, The Rural Alberta Advantage reflect their upbringing not only in their name and album title but in their music as well. The three-piece layer vocal haromies over intricate drumming and driving guitar to reflect the landscape and culture of Alberta and growing up in it.

The Rural Alberta Advantage (known for short as RAA) recorded and released their debut album "Hometowns" on Saddle Creek in the US and through their own label John Dear in Canada in July of this year. During the in-studio performance, they debuted a new song "North Star."

Songs performed: "Edmonton," "North Star," and "Drain The Blood."
