Laura Stevenson and the Cans signed with Don Giovanni Records and are set to release their sophomore album on April 26th, 2011. You might recognize up and coming Don Giovanni as the New Jersey label that's championed the likes of Screaming Females, Shellshag, Black Wine and Byrds Of Paradise. Don Giovanni label boss, Joseph Steinhardt was blown away by the band live. As he puts it, "Laura's voice caught me at first as one of the best voices I'd ever heard. Then, the band wrap their sound around her songs and when you see them, when you hear them, you know they need to be huge!"

Laura Stevenson got her start as a pick–up player in the Long Island punk rock collective Bomb The Music Industry. During her tenure, Stevenson began privately composing songs on the softer side of indie rock and traditional folk. With the addition of Mike Campbell and Alex Billig began playing out as Laura Stevenson and the Cans. Their first full–length LP A Record is a available in the pay what you want format from Quote Unquote Records. The band has toured the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Western Europe for the better part of the past year.
