Daughter of Austin music staple, Andrew Venson, Jackie’s early drive for music led her to Boston’s Berklee College of Music, where she picked up a guitar for the first time. Inspired by blues, R&B and pop artists alike, Venson draws on diverse influences ranging from Buddy Guy to Sade to Alicia Keys. In April of 2014, she was handpicked from over 2,000 entries by the Southern retail chain, Belk, for their Belk Fashion Lounge concert series. Throughout the series’ five amphitheater performances, she supported the famed country and southern icons Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and James Taylor. She released her debut The Light in Me in 2015 and Jackie Venson Live in 2016, wowing audiences throughout the US and Europe with her charming stage presence, virtuosic guitar skills, and playful energy. Her new EP, Transcends, is out now.
”The Austin native’s stage presence exudes joy and excitement for life as her blues-y, rock ‘n roll sound carries this tune about freedom and self-acceptance. Her delicate, yet mesmerizing voice and the ease with which her fingers find all the right notes along her guitar’s neck will have your head in the clouds.” (VIBE Magazine)
