TVD Video Premiere: Jackie Venson, “Mysterious”

“I wrote ‘Mysterious’ about platonic love and the sometimes strange behavior of the heart. I dedicated this EP to all of the forms of love that are not typically written about. Love is all we have and even though the heart can be mysterious, I choose to follow it.”
Jackie Venson

As we wrote just last month, fresh off a tour with fellow Austin, Texas guitarist and vocalist Gary Clark Jr. with whom she has been compared, Jackie Venson’s new EP, “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.

Venson is currently working on new music and plans to hit the road again in January.
