There are two artists with this name; one from Belfast in Northern Ireland and one from Long Island USA. 1. Laura Stevenson, Long Island, United States.
rel="nofollow">http://www.laurastevenson.net/ 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.
3 different takes, 2 guitars, and one missing tape later, we finally have a new Laura Stevenson song. Miss having her around all the time. We had a bunch of funny outtakes from this session. Hopefully I remember them for the DVD.

Recently I decided to add interviews to the site. I agonized over what format they should be, and made lists of pros/cons for each one. In the end I decided that TEXT would be the easiest, and fit perfectly as a buffer for all the video work that I do. I also realized that I could easily do interviews over...
Looking back over the video on IYMI, I noticed that there hasn't been one of Laura playing live. Seeking to correct that mistake, I brought my camera to her last show, where she played with her full Cans lineup ( minus 1 ). This song is from their upcoming 7inch on Mandible Records.
Recently it was Laura's birthday, so...
This was filmed at the Knitting Factory during Jeff Rosenstock's Holiday Charity Event Spectacular. The show was tons of fun except when Jeff called me out for giving him a weird look. I'm too tall for my own good.
LS+tC get better and better with each show, and I'm excited to hear their new record. This song will be...
This is from their recent show with Maps and Atlases. I can assure you that the pieces of paper taped to the stands are only there for a cover song they did later in the set.
Someone told Laura that she shouldn't count into songs that she starts. I think it was Beethoven.
Laura Stevenson and the Cans did a last minute Nervous Energies session when the band performed in Opelika, Alabama. We looked for a spot to do it and Laura spotted this old gingerbread house and it was perfect for an outdoor session. The band also played "I See Dark" and "Baby Bones" filled with wind and trucks/cars with loud mufflers...
This is the official video for our song "The Healthy One" from Sit Resist. We recorded it in my apartment on the infamous pink-turned-blue couch. It only took us one take, mostly because we ate all the pizza during it.
I discovered that it's impossible to handle the camera and also be in the video. I was so...
Eric spontaneously shot this video when the band came through Bloomington recently.

We used to live in the same apartment. Recently I played drums with them on way down to Fest. I'm the backup backup backup drummer. Laura also paid me to do the artwork, and then sat behind me the whole time. Lastly, my good friends at Mandible put out this record.
Ok, I think I got everything out...
