Given roots-rock band Alberta Cross' apparent influences, like The Band and Neil Young, you might assume that the group is American. In reality, it formed in the U.K., and bandleader Petter Ericson Stakee is originally from Uppsala, Sweden.

Now that bassist and co-songwriter Terry Wolfers has left the group, Alberta Cross has become a Stakee solo effort. On this page, hear live performances of songs from the project's new self-titled album.
