Jackie Venson released her latest studio album Joy April of 2019. In celebration of the album, Venson held a sold out album release show in her hometown of Austin, Texas at the historic Paramount Theatre. Venson is currently at the start of a massive global tour that will take her across mainland Europe, the American Midwest, as well as both coasts – including the wilds of Alaska!
The song you're about to listen to, Next Life, is also Jackie's submission to NPR's Tiny Desk Contest this year. The video features Jackie and her longtime drummer, Rodney Hyder, performing as a duo. Rodney, completely blind since childhood, has been playing music with the Venson family for over three decades. Hyder started out with Jackie's father in his band Blue Mist. When Jackie's father, Andrew Venson, retired she was quick to snatch up Rodney, who's unique playing style and ability make him one of the best in the business.
