Since forming in 2005, Alberta Cross – led by Swedish-born lead singer and guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee – creates a timeless, alt-folk sound that is all their own. Their first release, mini-album Thief and The Heartbreaker (Fiction Records/Geffen Records in the US], in 2007 with lead single “Low Man” helped propel the band to new heights, as “Low Man” circulated the American TV circuit, including syncs on Showtime’s Californication, Longmire and FX’s popular drama series, Sons of Anarchy. Later in 2007, Alberta Cross followed up with the release of their debut EP, Leave Us Or Forgive Us. Stakee, who was living in London at the time, moved to New York City in 2008 and signed with ATO Records to release two acclaimed LPs, Broken Side of Time (2009) and Songs of Patience (2012), and The Rolling Thunder EP (2011). During the time span of these three projects, Alberta Cross music has been featured in national TV ads including a campaign for Kettle One Vodka, as well as on the soundtrack to Madden NFL. They have also made television appearances around the world, with performances in the US including the Late Show with David Letterman and Last Call with Carson Daly.

At the start of 2015, Alberta Cross signed Dine Alone Records to release their current self-titled album, which was co-produced by Stakee and Claudius Mittendorfer (Temples, Interpol, Johnny Marr). Recorded in upstate New York at Dreamland, Stakee's main inspiration for the latest offering stemmed from late night jam sessions that took place in NYC with other well-known musicians, including friend Kraig [Jarret Johnson] of Golden Smog. NPR, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and more have highly-praised Stakee on his new musical direction.

Throughout their career Alberta Cross have toured extensively including the US, Canada, Europe, UK, Australia and Japan; played major festivals including: Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Reading, Leeds, Glastobury, plus Sweden’s Malmofestivalen, Lowlands Festival in Netherlands and Rock En Seine in Paris. They have also toured supporting: Them Crooked Vultures, Oasis, Neil Young, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Bat For Lashes, Mumford & Sons, Portugal. The Man, Ben Harper, Phosphorescent, Dave Mathews Band and The Shins. 2016 will see Alberta Cross on the road, with dates in Europe this January and February and additional shows to be announced soon in North America.
Great Caesar
Great Caesar
In the dead of winter, the grand summer homes of the Hamptons sit vacant and silent, their yards piling high with snow behind the perfectly manicured hedges that line the quiet streets… or so you might expect. But, if you paid a visit to Southampton, NY last winter, you may have noticed that one house in particular was neither vacant nor silent, but rather spilling over with raucous music and joyful listeners. A knock on the door would have welcomed you into the winter retreat of Great Caesar, the six-piece, Brooklyn-based band bringing together chamber rock and indie soul in a singularly anthemic and captivating blend. Don't fret if you missed those wild winter nights, though. They were just the warm-up. Now, with a new EP (titled 'Jackson's Big Sky' after that Southampton house) and extensive US tour dates on the way, Great Caesar is ready to bring their one-of-a-kind sound directly to you.

“Great Caesar is a band that will center you on the meaning of your own experiences, and will open up a window to help you peer into a more expansive world.” -Huffington Post

“...powerful songs that were riddled with every emotion from jubilation to sorrow. All six members contribute to the inherent wisdom that the band’s music carries.” -Pancakes & Whiskey

“Achingly sublime” -The Deli Magazine
