Alberta Cross Biography

Alberta Cross are a New York-based band, formed by Petter Ericson Stakee (vocals, guitar) & Terry Wolfers (bass). Despite their different upbringings - Petter travelled from an early age between Sweden and England with his singer-songwriter father whilst Terry was brought up in London's East End - they share a mutual love of music. The band claims the name Alberta Cross is an anagram, but won't say for what.

They were joined by Petter's brother John Alexander Ericson on organ to record their self produced debut 'The Thief & The Heartbreaker'. Their sound has been compared to Kings of Leon, The Band, Neil Young, The Raconteurs and other blues-influenced rock bands.

The band has toured extensively around the UK, performing with bands like The Shins, Bat for Lashes, Simian Mobile Disco and played the Latitude tour with Findlay Brown in summer 2007. During October 2008 Alberta Cross supported Oasis on its UK arena tour; playing at both Bournemouth and Cardiff. The band appeared at the Coachella Valley Music Festival on Friday, April 17th, 2009. In June 2009, they were the support for The Dave Matthews Band at the O2 Academy, London. Alberta Cross performed at the 2009 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, which was held June 11-14, 2009. The band also appeared at the 2009 Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, IL, on August 9th, 2009.

The band's first full-length album Broken Side of Time was released on September 22, 2009.
