Austin Texas based guitar blazer Jackie Venson brings her skillful playing and smooth voice back to the Pacific Northwest for her "Joy" album release tour!
Obsessed with music from an early age, singer/songwriter Jackie Venson immersed herself in its study, attending the Berklee College of Music to practice classical piano. But when she switched to guitar, her long-simmering passion for emotive live performance was realized. Abandoning the straight-laced world of classical for the raw power of blues and soul, Venson has since been tirelessly honing her skills into an intoxicating amalgam of blues, rock, R&B and soul with deeply heartfelt lyrics. Having won "Best Guitartist" at the Austin Music Awards, played on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, toured with the likes of Gary Clark Jr. and opened for legends like Earth, Wind and Fire, the sky is truly the limit for what the future holds for Jackie Venson.
