Van Mary: “New Mexico” [PREMIERE]

Posted by on Oct 23, 2019

It’s only been a couple years since Austin singer-guitarist Emily Whetstone adopted a new moniker and began performing under the name Van Mary, but now backed up by a three-piece, Whetstone’s indie-influenced songwriting has never sounded so well rounded out. Whetstone’s candid lyricism, swaying vocals, delicate strumming, and moody melodies all make for an instantly infectious performance, and when you see the band play live, you’ll be blown away by how easy this frontwoman makes it look.

And although Van Mary’s discography is pretty limited at the moment, their single and music video release show kicks off 9PM this Sunday at Cheer Up Charlie’s and we’re giving you a KUTX-clusive listen to the goods a few days early: “New Mexico”!
