The Rural Alberta Advantage

The Rural Alberta Advantage (The RAA) recently released The Rise EP featuring 6 new songs including ‘CANDU". It is the first new offerings of music from the award-winning trio since 2017’s album The Wild. They are also the first recordings since the return of core band member, Amy Cole, and hint at the new influences informing the band's sonic palette, songwriting and creative evolution. With the seismic shifts that have rolled out across the world over the past couple of years, demanding everyone to attune to the world in vastly different ways, The RAA will embark on a distinctly divergent course for releasing their music. An ongoing series of new songs and EPs will be shared thriugh the year as they're written and recorded by the band, with intentional release dates set via Paper Bag Records (Canada/EU) and Saddle Creek (US). Expect news on EP2 soon. 


The RAA's music connects us to untold stories and an unpacked history we all have a part in owning, reflecting on, learning from and possibly seeing from a different vantage point: the overview effect. Alongside the series of new music over the next year, the band will be touring as they continue to drive the musical conversation with their fans, in real time.
