I recently interviewed Austin's style-jumping blues/soul guitarist, Jackie Venson about her new live album, appropriately titled Jackie Venson Live. I found her to be an enthusiastic gear head and a player who loves to explore multiple genres and mix them together into compelling musical hybrids. Please watch for the article in an upcoming issue of Guitar Player.
Today, Venson and her team are giving the Guitar Player community an exclusive sneak peek at the album tracks.
"After two studio EPs and one studio album, I felt a live album had to be next," explains Venson, who is the daughter of Austin music staple, Andrew Venson. "The band and I had been playing countless shows together, and after personally feeling the energy of the live show over and over again, it was time to put it on record."
