A clearly defined and emotionally mature statement of intent, Hope In Dirt City represents the culmination of these experiences.

The Provincial Archive

The Provincial Archive is an indie-folk project based in Edmonton, AB. With a penchant for arrangement and an ever-growing collection of instruments, The Provincial Archive writes music to document the details of all our unsung stories. Their sophomore effort, Maybe We Could Be Holy (Forthcoming, 2010), takes its cues from the far-reaching corners of pop traditions. It is a dense counterpoint to the sparse production of their debut material (Nameless Places, 2009) and an artistic departure from a group of musicians eager for growth.
