About The Rural Alberta Advantage

Led by singer/guitarist and Alberta native Nils Edenloff, the Rural Alberta Advantage are an anthemic indie folk-rock trio from Toronto, Canada, who balance rhythmic intensity with expansive melodies. They scored a Top 30 independent album with their Polaris Prize-nominated sophomore release, Departing, in 2011. Subsequent efforts Mended with Gold (2014) and The Wild (2017) continued to see regional success while returning the group to Billboard's U.S. Heatseekers chart. Their fifth album, 2023's The Rise & the Fall, found them as passionate and observant as ever.
