Red Balloon Music is proud to present the sensational New York singer-singwriter LAURA STEVENSON for the Manchester date of her UK tour, promoting her long-awaited new album ‘The Big Freeze’.

Support TBC.


Recorded in her childhood home during the dead of winter, ‘The Big Freeze’ represents a pivotal step for New York songwriter Laura Stevenson.

Easily the darkest and most emotionally-devastating album of Stevenson’s career, it is also without a doubt her most powerful.

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.

At times you will be reminded of classic American songwriters from both the mainstream and the fringe, whether it’s Jason Molina, Judee Sill, Harry Nilsson or Dolly Parton. But always you will be reminded of the power of the human voice (and a single guitar) to invoke the universe. Or in this case, it’s end.
