Whitestone was formed in January of 2000 – in response to a songwriters showcase in Nashville Tennessee by Debbie Tavernier. Since then, Whitestone has performed in local clubs, as well as weddings and events all over Austin, South Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, Hutto, Lago Vista, and Lakeway. Whitestone has performed with Alan Jackson’s Band - The Streyhorns - in Nashville as well as performing and doing studio work with Malford Millagan (Storyville). Whitestone has performed in SXSW and toured/performed in Texas, Oregon, Washington, Nebraska and Tennessee. Television performances include Fox morning show and KXAN music at noon, as well as a featured story with KXAN’s own “Out on the Porch” with Jim Swift.
Our clients have included corporate events for Dell, Applied Materials, Intel, and DR Horton, as well as a host of charities such as the local Cancer Society, Relay for Life and the Capital Area Food Bank.
Whitestone has released 3 albums, but it was our first full original album, done in 2007, _Color Me Gone_, that included the hits “Austin City Limits” and “Color Me Gone”. Whitestone’s music has been compared to that of Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, and the Eagles with strong vocals and strong harmony vocals. We play a full mix of Country, Classic Rock, Blues, Motown, Jazz and originals, sure to entertain a wide variety of people. We constantly update our songlist to make sure we remain fresh and exciting to our repeat customers, who are delighted when Whitestone returns to their venue.
