Alberta Cross has received overwhelming acclaim since the release of their ATO Records debut Broken Side of Time. Featured as a “Breaking Artist” in Rolling Stone, Esquire calls the album “as electrically dark as it is electrifyingly determined,” and Billboard declares it “a step forward in cementing their place in American blues-rock,” that “leaves an unmistakable mark.”
Earning equal praise for their live performances, Alberta Cross has headlined sold out shows in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and more, and have shared the stage in the U.S. and Europe with the likes of Them Crooked Vultures, Oasis, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Mumford & Sons, among others.
Alberta Cross took shape when Sweden-born guitarist/vocalist Petter Ericson Stakee and bassist Terry Wolfers, a Brit himself, began jamming together in London’s east end. Their acclaimed EP The Thief & the Heartbreaker earned the band widespread critical praise with NPR finding “It’s a long way from London to Laurel Canyon, but they seem to have found the portal.”
Led by Stakee and Wolfers, Alberta Cross is rounded out by guitarist Sam Kearney, drummer Austin Beede and keyboardist Alec Higgins.
