Some people are just born with music coursing through their veins. Larry Stevens has been singing and performing since childhood. An accomplished singer/songwriter with a distinctive brand of music described as “Amerirock”, Stevens creates quality music paired with honest and heartfelt lyrics that resonate with his fans, music insiders, and media outlets. The melodies in his original material have been compared to those of Jack Johnson, Plain White T’s and the Beatles. With his dynamic, energetic performances Stevens has found himself on prominent stages including the world's most sought-after venue - the legendary Bluebird Café, as well as many other important stages in Nashville. He has performed at numerous major venues throughout the New York metro area including The Bitter End, Kenny’s Castaways, The Iridium, Bergen Performing Arts Center, PNC Bank Arts Center, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, The Surflight Theatre, Tarrytown Music Hall, The Paramount, Ridgefield Playhouse, The Newton Theatre, Paramount Hudson Valley, the New Jersey Festival of Ballooning and many others.

He has had the honor of sharing the stage with 30+ national acts including Kenny Loggins, Gin Blossoms, Huey Lewis and the News, Los Lonely Boys, Foreigner, America and The Doobie Brothers, just to name a few. As a member of the legendary Friars Club in NYC, Stevens is proud of his performances for our Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC as well as benefit shows for various children’s hospitals.
Stevens' albums Heart on Fire, Mercer Street, Downstairs at Mayo's, Heart of a Fighter and Our Country have earned critical acclaim that includes a nod from celebrity columnist Cindy Adams of The New York Post.
