Meet, Austin-born, soul/pop guitarist/vocalist, Jackie Venson, announces the release of her new single, ’Don’t Lie to Me’, a follow up to her EP Transcends. Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures your attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments, that reach far beyond her tender 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”.
Often compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr., we believe Jackie holds her own as the musician we’ve all been waiting for. Jackie is hot off a string of official SXSW shows and amidst an international tour and upcoming NYC residency at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3. View her tour dates Jackie Venson. Jackie was hand-picked by NPR as a “Tiny Desk Entries We Love.” She also received the honor of being incorporated in a mural celebrating Black History Month, painted on the East Side of Austin.
