Soul pop guitarist
Jackie Venson brings Transcends to Howlin’ Wolf’s the Den, 10/22

Fresh off a tour with fellow Austin, Texas guitarist and vocalist Gary Clark Jr. with whom she has been compared, Jackie Venson will bring her powerful stage presence, mesmerizing voice, and hot guitar licks to the Den at the Howlin’ Wolf on Sunday night.

Venson’s new album, Transcends, features compositions that highlight an increased focus on her songwriting. Picking up the guitar in only 2011 during her final year at the Berklee College of Music where she studied classical piano, the focus since has been solely on her guitar work.

Last year, she released Jackie Venson Live to rave reviews from Guitar Player magazine and the Austin Chronicle among others, as well as a spot on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Venson is one of a new generation of blues and roots performers who embrace technology. While she often tours with a three-piece combo, she also plays solo using loops and pedals to create a powerful sound. For this gig she will be accompanied by the band.

Mikayla Braun opens the show at 7 PM. The Hot Eight Brass Band holds down their usual Sunday night gig at 10 PM.
