Edmonton-based Altameda (æl-tah-MI-da) formed out of a recording session for singer-songwriter Troy Snaterse but quickly became a group effort to create something bigger. Despite the four-piece finding their roots in various genres, they felt compelled to blend their individual styles with the influences that shaped their earlier years. During the sessions for the group’s debut LP, Dirty Rain, it was clear that the band felt a chemistry that only arrives through shared experiences.
Dirty Rain was toured extensively across all Canadian markets as well as the UK and spent five weeks on the CKUA Top 30 Charts, eventually reaching #1. The band has completed their sophomore full-length album with producer Aaron Goldstein (City & Colour, Daniel Romano, Kathleen Edwards) with an anticipated 2018 release date. Altameda has supported Sam Roberts Band, Plants & Animals, Kacy & Clayton, Reuben & the Dark and SUSTO.
