Purchase LP on iTunes, here:

The album is brave and paints broad brush strokes of electronic, 

pulsing instrumental overtures and heavy beats. Way to Go goes on the 

fringe of alternative music to share a melting pot of disco, pop 

and indie rock genre influences.” – The Deli Magazine


Featured on Guitar World, here:


“I’ll always have a soft spot for songs like this, 

feel good acoustic indie rock tunes with a 

melody soaked in rays of California sunshine.” – EARMILK


“Oscillating between whimsical synth and dark, gritty electro-pop, the uptempo

track “Nowhere Anywhere…features Whitehurst’s 

strong vocals and storytelling lyrics.” – Culture Collide

On the new album, Emily Whitehurst tells us: “Recording this album was unlike any other experience I’ve had. Certain instruments I’ve never worked with before were electronic on the demos, but on the album, they’re real! I also had the opportunity to record some complex vocal layers working with Paul Haile. I’m really excited to be opening this door and seeing what’s on the other side.


Survival Guide is the compelling artistic endeavor featuring California vocalist and keyboardist Emily Whitehurst. Her music falls somewhere between indie rock and electronic, always with descriptive, storytelling lyrics, strong vocals and a sprinkle of pop. After supporting Joan Jett, performing at First City Festival 2014 (Beck, The National, Phantogram) and recording a freshman full-length album, Survival Guide was named one of the Top 12 Bay Area Bands of 2014 by San Francisco’s premier rock radio station, Live 105. The upcoming album, entitled “Way to Go“, conjures feelings of a dark modern fairytale and showcases Whitehurst’s vocal range and talent, following two previously released 7” vinyl singles, “Hot Lather Machine” and “Wildcat“, released on San Francisco’s Side With Us Records.


Survival Guide released debut LP Way To Go on May 15th, 2015.
