Jackie Venson
8 PM @ The Linda-WAMC Performing Arts Center, Albany | $15
Austin multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Jackie Venson has gained a following for her beautifully complex music. Venson has performed along with artists like Gary Clark Jr, Aloe Blacc, and Citizen Cope, to name a few. On April 20, she released a new EP, jackie the robot vol 1, composed entirely of remixes of her catalogue to show her growth as both a musician and producer. In October, Jackie released her latest studio album ‘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. 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.
