VAN WILLIAM DELIVERS SUBLIME COVER OF ELLIOTT SMITH’S “PICTURES OF ME”

Pictures of Me eSingle - Van Wiliam

HEADLINING TOUR STARTS SEPT 10th IN ATLANTA, GA

 TICKETS ON SALE HERE

Acclaimed singer/songwriter Van William released his striking cover of beloved musician Elliott Smith’s “Pictures of Me” yesterday. This marks the last of three e-singles put out by Van following the release of his debut album Countries earlier this year via Fantasy Records. Van’s highly personal lyrics and intimate storytelling ability have drawn comparisons to Smith in the past with Van listing him as a major influence.

“Elliott Smith’s music has always been a gut punch of fragility, organic intensity, and melodic brilliance all in one little package,” says Van. “I was in college when he passed, but he’s one of the rare artists whose music actually has continually meant more to me as I get older. It took on new meaning to me this year. We started playing ‘Pictures of Me’ in our live set and it’s become part of this project for me in a real way, so I wanted to get it on tape.”
