Corb Lund

Corb Lund grew up in Southern Alberta living on his family's farm and ranches near Taber, Cardston and Rosemary. He is known for his Albertan Pride.[1] Lund left his hometown of Taber and moved to Edmonton, where he enrolled in the Grant MacEwan College to study jazz guitar and bass.

Lund was a founding member of The Smalls. The band retired in the fall of 2001, but reunited in 2014 for a string of shows, the so-called "Slight Return" tour.[2]

Lund formed his country trio, the Corb Lund Band in 1995. The band changed its name to "Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans" shortly after guitarist Grant Siemens joined the group, and has been touring and recording under that title ever since.

Lund currently lives in Lethbridge, Alberta, and spends much of his downtime at his family ranch south of Cardston, Alberta.[3]

The Hurtin' Albertans

Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans are a Canadian country music band, formerly known as the Corb Lund Band. The Hurtin' Albertans is Lund's touring band. They have released seven albums to critical acclaim.[4][5] The band tours regularly in Canada, the United States and Australia. Much of their time is spent in the Canadian Prairies and the American southwest.

The band's members are:

  • Kurt Ciesla, bass
  • Grant "Demon" Siemens, guitar and other strings
  • Brady Valgardson, drums

Siemens is the only member who is not Albertan, hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Farmer/drummer Valgardson and Lund are from Taber, Alberta.

The band has toured Europe, where they played the UK Glastonbury Festival, and Australia several times. The group was featured the movie "Slither" (2006) and were part of the soundtrack to the 2008 documentary, "Holler Back: (Not) Voting in an American Town." They have also provided accompaniment for an NBC special in 2006, on which former world figure skating champion and fellow Albertan, Kurt Browning, performed a routine to “Expectation and the Blues”. Their music can also be heard in the ski film "Nine Winters Old."

Lund signed a two-album deal with New West Records (home of Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson and other major artists) in 2009. His first record on New West, Losin' Lately Gambler, was released in September 2009.

Corb Lund and the Hurtin Albertans played their 2009 single "Long Gone to Saskatchewan" in Ottawa for the 2011 Canada Day ceremonies in the presence of the newlywed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their Royal visit to Canada.[6]

Corb Lund and the Hurtin Albertans released their seventh studio album, Cabin Fever, on August 14, 2012. It debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums Chart. In June 2013, the album was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.

Corb Lund released Things That Can't Be Undone in 2015. Lund worked with producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) to explore new styles and sounds on the album, saying one of the goals of the album was to "get out of my comfort zone."[7]
