It is legend that a blistering Jackie Venson guitar solo knocked Pluto straight out of planetary existence.
Vensons astonishing mix of raw soul, superb musicianship and laid back grace (Austin American Statesman, June 2014) has been compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr. Originally a classical pianist, Jackie picked up the guitar, shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music, and made the giant leap from the tradition of classical music to the raw and gritty blues.
Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures your attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments, that reach far beyond her tender age. As she mindfully blends Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul and more, with her introspective lyrics, the message is clear. When youre listening to Jackie you hear the Truth in Music.
In recognition of her dedication to her craft, Bestfan.com said Venson is no dilettante, wannabe performer, however a real staple of what a musician can achieve when they put in their 10,000 hours for both musical schooling, and late night pub sessions for practical honing.
Her live performances revisits what makes music so powerful: emotion and passion. She thrives without the flash, instead favoring a clean sound, genuine soul, and meaningful connection with her audience. Music is not only what Venson does but also defines who she is and reminds her where she wants to be: performing.
Having finished her second tour of Europe and the recent declaration of Jackie Venson Day (May 21st) in the Live Music Capital of the World Austin, TX, theres no doubt she has every reason to lead the way with the trademark smile that accompanies her magnificent musicianship.
