The Young Albertans 2012 debut album, "The Young Albertans", debuted on the CJSR (Edmonton's campus radio) folk charts at number 3.



The Young Albertans performed at the prestigious Edmonton Folk Festival in 2012 (See Edmonton Journal article in Press Section), and members of the band have played at the Sled Island festival in Calgary and NXNE in Toronto. In June 2013, the band will headline at the Watervalley music festival in Alberta.

The Young Albertans are an acoustic folk group from Edmonton, Alberta. Despite their short time as a band, their inviting sound and energetic live set has secured them shows at Edmonton's premier music venues; regularly playing (and selling out) the Wunderbar, Avenue Theater, Bohemia, Hooliganz Pub, the Elevation Room and The Pawn Shop. In 2012 the band performed to rave reviews at the WaterValley Celtic music festival near Calgary. As their name suggests, The Young Albertan's music is reflective of life in Canada and on the prairie. They have been described as "Party Folk" and their acoustic shows are so energetic they occasionally compel audience members to crowd surf.

In the summer of 2011 Andrew Curley married Krista Gray. Six months later, they formed a band with their best friends Eric and Sean. Naming themselves after a painting they received as a wedding gift, they became The Young Albertans. All of the bands recordings were completed in a log cabin in Robb Alberta, in the foot hills by the rocky mountains. They sing of strangers met in Tofino dive bars, of adventures overseas, of too many drinks in small Alberta towns and of Canada's cold and unforgiving winters and the love it takes to survive them. The Young Albertans approach folk music with an entirely fresh and original out-look that set's them apart from derivative acts and typical folk regurgitation.
