BestFan recently called Venson a “real staple of what a musician can achieve when they put in their 10,000 hours for both musical schooling, and late night pub sessions for practical honing” and this is all the more apparent considering her hard work in the studio, on the stage and with her “Truth In Music” sessions on YouTube. Initiated in February 2013, the sessions feature Venson’s original R&B and soul compositions and guitar virtuosity as well as a few covers, including a stunning blues-soaked rendition of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.”
With each new video she posts and her views climbing towards 20,000, Venson is gaining fans in her native Austin and far beyond. Be sure you catch this rising star before it’s too late!
More about Jackie Venson & Truth in Music:
Daughter of Andrew Venson (veteran musician of the Austin music scene) and a Berklee College of Music graduate, Venson decided to take her music career to a new level by starting a YouTube channel featuring herself performing acoustic covers and her original songs. As the popularity of Venson’s online sessions grew, so did the production quality of her videos. Now in her second season of Truth In Music, Venson shoots in with multiple cameras and has included a full band in the live recordings, featuring other artists such as Gilbert Ayala on drums, Alán Uribe on bass, and Steve Carlos Kirk on sax.
