Time & Location
About the Event
Come celebrate the release of Jackie Venson's new album JOY. Following up an exciting 2018, during which Venson released several singles to rave reviews from a number of well-regarded publications including “AfroPunk,” “Grammy.com,” “EARMILK,” “NPR Music,” “She Shreds Magazine” and “Vintage Guitar Magazine.”
“With today’s modern rock overrun by formulaic pop-rock choruses, purposeless guitar solos, and desperate electronic bass integration, Venson sets fire to the faux-rock sounds plaguing the airwaves. With veracity and candor, she has been winning fans over left and right through heartfelt lyrics, a powerful voice and unapologetic guitar work” (EARMILK) Venson’s new release combines a staple blend of blues, rock, R&B and soul to create a combustible cocktail that, when mixed with her raw power and warmth, is unforgettable.
Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures audiences’ attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments, that reach far beyond her age. As she mindfully blends Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul and more with her introspective lyrics, the message is clear–when you’re listening to Jackie you hear the “Truth in Music”. Her live performances revisit 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 – it’s who she is.
