“Jackie Venson is truly an Austin legend in the making.”
JJackie Venson is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter known for her beautifully complex music and blazing guitar skills. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Jackie has played to crowds across the world. With the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cancellation of her entire tour schedule, and the wave of social change sweeping across the country, Jackie committed herself to releasing more music than ever before, connecting with her fans directly, and speaking up about the change she wanted to see in her city and country. In April 2020, Jackie released a new EP titled "jackie the robot vol 1" composed entirely of remixes that re-imagine Jackie's critically acclaimed catalogue, showcasing her growth as both a musician and producer. In October 2020, Jackie released 'Vintage Machine', her first studio follow up to 2019's 'Joy'. Music from 'Vintage Machine' was featured heavily on Jackie's taping for Austin City Limits' 46th season, and she released the full set on 'Live at Austin City Limits' in December 2020. Her latest album 'Love Transcends', released in September 2021, is her first collection of music to focus on a central genre- the blues. With the uncertainty of the times we're living in, one thing holds true for Jackie Venson- she's going to play her music, speak her truth, and spread as much joy as she can doing it.
