“...she is one to watch out for.” - She Shreds Magazine
Idiosyncratic singer-songwriter Jackie Venson releases her fierce new single A Million Moments, out now 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 Blacc, Curtis Harding, TV on the Radio, Gary Clark Jr. and Earth Wind and Fire to name a few, as well as performing at a plethora of prestigious festivals including SXSW, John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival and Open Air Blues Festival. Venson has also received praise from a number of well- regarded publications including AfroPunk, NPR Music, She Shreds Magazine and Vintage Guitar Magazine.
Venson made her UK debut at Two Tribes Brewery, in association with DIY and Big Indie Records.
