Albatross is a hard rock/blues band from Ontario, Canada, formed in the summer of 2012. The band was brought together by three musicians who loved nothing more than jamming and recording music . They noticed immediate chemistry at the first jam session. It was clear that they had to do something much bigger than just playing music as a hobby: to reach and inspire as many people as they can with their music.
Albatross deliver a hard-hitting sound and a fresh take on blues rock. Their first EP "Happenstance" was released last September with "Evil Woman" and "Smoke & Mirrors' receiving indie radio airplay across the globe. With a second guitarist added to the group and many shows planned for the summer, 2014 looks set to be a very exciting time for Albatross. Not to mention the band is in the process of writing new songs with plans to release another EP towards the end of the year!

“I am REALLY digging what you guys are doing. Seriously cool stuff. Big, tough blues and done damn well; I love it!”

"There is a certain vibe here that is just magic. In short, one of the most exciting bands to come out of Ontario in a long while (See, there CAN be Canadians who rock!) the future seems bright for Albatross!”
