Van Mary

Van Mary, led by songwriter Emily Whetstone and made whole by bassist Katelynn Garza, guitarist Jim Campo and drummer Jud Johnson, “growls with discontent over political policies, societal dogmas, and gender inequality across a thumping indie rock stomp and moody guitar work” — an apt description offered by Austinot writer Bill Tucker. The group’s momentum has only increased over the past year and they’re now poised to release their debut full-length in 2022.
