Emerging Irish Alternative Project Von Venn Set to Release Highly Anticipated New Single ‘Constant Girl’ November 4th
Von Venn is the main project of songwriter Gary Cox. The name for the project/band derives from the concept that we become who we are based upon the intersection of life experiences gathered, people we meet and lessons we learn along the way. Similarly, the songs are an intersection of musical styles that influenced that Gary’s song writing, artists such as RadioHead, Jeff Buckley, The Blue Nile, John Martyn, John Lennon and many more.
The result is primarily guitar centred songs that examine the intricacies of human nature and experiences. The aim is to craft something for everyone to connect with and explore at an emotional level. Hope, regret, loss, longing, nostalgia, attraction, love is all explored.
“Put it all in a blender, marinate in whiskey and it’s probably Von Venn.”
Von Venn released their debut single ‘Ghost’ in spring 2022 which picked up support in The Thin Air, Caesar Live N Loud, WigWam, NewInMusic, RTE 2XM, NEAR FM and many more!

Constant Girl is the second single release from the upcoming Von Venn album “Jeanie is Out.
The song explores why we might want or even need someone in our life, but for the wrong reasons. It’s about having someone by your side to ease the troubles of the world but for some reason it’s not enough. It will never be enough because it’s not the troubles of the world that’s the problem. The unease in your own heart and mind is the problem…and it’s a hard lesson to learn
Jeanie is Out from Von Venn is a collection of introspective and melodic songs that explore the human condition in all its glory and despair. The album was written during 2021 and was recorded and produced in Soundcaster Studios, Dublin, Ireland. The album draws on influences from past indie and alternative greats while still creating a unique distinctive sound. Layered guitars, synthesizers and keyboards are anchored by on-point drumming and bass. Harmonized vocals deliver a message through atmospheric songs that tell a tale.
