Laura Stevenson Announces Us Spring Headline Tour For April/may 2013

Laura Stevenson is excited to announce spring headline tour with full band in support of her forthcoming album Wheel, out April 23rd on Don Giovanni records. The April and May dates include 28 shows with support from Field Mouse, and see Stevenson and band hitting both coasts as well as Canada and the southern United States. The run follows a March journey to and from SXSW 2013. With the announcement, Stevenson is also releasing the latest track from the album, allowing fans to preview the song "L-DOPA", praised by Stereogum for its "gorgeous strings and Stevenson's slow, crushing lyricism."

Wheel features strings by Grammy award winning violinist Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Antony And The Johnsons), brass accompaniment from Kelly Pratt (Beirut, Arcade Fire, David Byrne and St. Vincent), and was produced and mixed by Kevin McMahon (Swans, Titus Andronicus, Frightened Rabbit, Real Estate).
 
Laura Stevenson was born and raised on Long Island into a family of mariners and music makers.  She spent many of her younger days on the sugar barges of NY harbor with her father and uncles, who all made their living on the water, at one time running one of the largest fleets on the Hudson.  Meanwhile, her mother's parents were successful musicians; Harry Simeone, the composer and choral arranger responsible for such works as "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and Margaret McCravy (stage name McCrae), a singer from South Carolina who got her start accompanying her elder siblings "The McCravy Brothers," a harmonious gospel folk duo, before continuing on her own to record and tour with bandleader Benny Goodman.  Armed with her grandfather's love for modernist dissonance, a genetic predisposition for harmony, and with her sea legs firmly planted in the traditions of American folk singing, Stevenson began creating melodies at a very young age.
