Stevenson will embark on a European tour this summer in support of her latest album 'The Big Freeze', out now on Don Giovanni Records.
New-York based songwriter Laura Stevenson's fifth solo album The Big Freeze takes its title from the scientific theory that the universe may someday become cold and empty--all light, heat, and connection gone.
Recorded in her childhood home during the dead of winter, The Big Freeze represents a pivotal step for Stevenson. Despite her indie rock pedigree, including playing keyboard in ska-punk group Bomb the Music Industry, the record highlights Stevenson’s distinct voice and guitar more than ever before.
It is a natural aesthetic choice for the musician, who has often toured as a solo act and who pulls influence from the great American songbook, and a choice that plays to the core strength and organic beauty of her writing.
Stevenson builds on her own private worlds with choruses of multi-tracked voices, swarms of cellos, French horns and violins; orchestration that blooms and swells throughout each intimate performance. Exploring thematic ideas of distance and misconnection; worlds pulling apart, aching loneliness, and attempts to drive out hibernating dormant demons.
Now in support of the new album Stevenson has announced an upcoming European tour, beginning June 19th. She will play the final night of the tour in Dublin, Upstairs at Whelan's on July 3rd.
Tickets for the Whelan's show cost €13.50 and are available now.
