Idiosyncratic singer-songwriter Jackie Venson prepares for the release of her fierce new single A Million Moments, out on 7th December 2018 via Big Indie Records.

The single combines Venson’s staple blend of blues, rock, R&B and soul to create a combustible cocktail that, when mixed with her raw power and warmth, is unforgettable. A Million Moments is instantly infectious, fusing alt-pop sensibilities with Venson's undeniably impressive guitar skills to create something that marries the sounds of Gary Clark Jr. and Regina Spektor effortlessly.

Originally a classical pianist, Venson picked up the guitar shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music. She then made the giant leap from the traditions of classical music to the grittiness of blues and soul. Her live performances revisit what makes music so powerful; emotion and passion. She has already supported the likes of Aloe BlaccCurtis HardingTV on the RadioGary Clark Jr. and Earth Wind and Fire to name a few, as well as performing at a plethora of prestigious festivals including SXSWJohn Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival and Open Air Blues Festival. Venson has also received praise from a number of well- regarded publications including AfroPunkNPR MusicShe Shreds Magazine and Vintage Guitar Magazine.

Venson made her UK debut at Two Tribes Brewery earlier this year, in association with DIY and Big Indie Records. Catch Venson live next at Antone’s, Austin on 16th December 2018, where Big Indie Records are set to make their US debut of Big Indie Big Nights; a recurring event where the local label shows off their biggest, brightest talents and provides a stage to emerging artists in Texas.
