Ben Stevenson -- Cara Cara

“Yellow Bird” by Ben Stevenson

Toronto’s Ben Stevenson just put out a new video in support of his exquisite LP Cara Carareleased September 22 via Culvert Music. It’s for the stand-out track “Yellow Bird,” which we’ve named Song of the Day. Stevenson provided some inside knowledge in a press statement:

“This video is a collection of images and scenes from travels, life, friends, etc. that loosely tells the story of the last couple years, basically the time during which the album was made. It’s a collage meant to evoke feelings of freedom, movement and peace, the thought behind the song as well. The 8mm film lends an instant feeling of nostalgia to it, and the lack of chronology feels like a wash of memories.

“From the great wall of China to the Mojave Desert to the Canadian prairies, it’s basically a love letter to the world and an expression of gratitude for the experiences I’ve had and the opportunities to see the world through music.”
