Here is what critics have said about Jackie Venson:
“It’s exciting, it’s inspiring, and it sounds absolutely incredible.” (Substream Magazine)
“Jackie Venson is truly an Austin legend in the making. An accomplished guitarist and talented singer to boot, she collaborates with some of the best instrumentalists and artists in Austin, Texas on a regular basis and continually uses her platform to put people on.” (Forbes)
“With raging guitar work, a strong and eclectic bassline, and a breathy and edgy voice, “Witchcraft” is a song about female empowerment that really rocks, but not in the usual way we’ve been accustomed to as of late. The odd time-signature is surrounded by laser sharp guitar licks, random, but effective synth, and a call for woman to resist the status quo.” (Pancakes and Whiskey)
“[She] demonstrates how fierce of a performer she is, with a natural stage presence and the skills to back it up. ” (NPR)
“Jackie Venson continues to morph into a soul’d up St. Vincent and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Venson’s latest dynamite single is “A Million Moments,” a revved up blast of electro-soul …that pairs Venson’s thrilling guitar work and powerful vocals with booming synths and both electronic and live drums.” (OVRLD)
“With today’s modern rock overrun by formulaic pop-rock choruses, purposeless guitar solos, and desperate electronic bass integrations, Venson sets fire to the faux-rock sounds plaguing the airwaves. With veracity and candor, she has been winning fans over left and right through heartfelt lyrics, a powerful voice and unapologetic guitar work” (EARMILK)
“NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH THIS SELF-EMPOWERMENT ANTHEM BY SOUL SINGER JACKIE VENSON.” (Afropu
“The prolific guitarist/vocalist combines rhythmic groove, smooth vocals and a killer guitar solo, all of which speak to her raw and multifaceted talent.” (Culture Collide)
“The Austin native’s stage presence exudes joy and excitement for life as her blues-y, rock ‘n roll sound carries this tune about freedom and self-acceptance. Her delicate, yet mesmerizing voice and the ease with which her fingers find all the right notes along her guitar’s neck will have your head in the clouds.” (VIBE Magazine)
“Jackie Venson is one of the most talented up and coming blues guitarists of her generation. With a gorgeous singing voice, a guitar style that is both dynamic and technically precise, and music that blends genres, she is one to watch out for.” (She Shreds)
“..A player who loves to explore multiple genres and mix them together into compelling musical hybrids.” (Guitar Player)
