Skillfully combining layers of electric and acoustic guitar, keys, bluesy bass and Petter Ericson Stakee's captivating vocals, Alberta Cross' approach to music is evidently a thoughtful one. Currently residing in New York, Alberta Cross has taken incredible strides to earn global recognition.

The upcoming debut album from Alberta Cross is titled Broken Side of Time.

Brantley Guittierez

After releasing their EP, The Thief & The Heartbraker, the quintet was met with a wave of critical acclaim. Their blues rock style often leads to comparisons with other blues-influenced bands, such as The Raconteurs, Black Keys and Kings of Leon. But what has really established Alberta Cross is the roots-rock quintet's ability to wrap each song in warm nostalgia. The band is so familiar and refreshing, it's easy to forget that they have yet to release their debut full-length album, Broken Side of Time.
