You know when you see someone play the guitar and they just exert pure power? That’s pretty much Jackie Venson. It’s not so much bravado but more a comfort-level that shows that she’s doing exactly what she’s meant to be doing. Her career has been on the rise, she’s toured with Gary Clark Jr, and now she’s in New York to do a residency at Rockwood Music Hall. On this edition of The 405 Exchange, we go into Jackie’s story, and as a first for the podcast, we're treated to a performance session too. Jackie will be playing Rockwood Music Hall on May 2nd, May 9th, and The Cutting Room on May 15th.

Another special element of today’s episode is the premiere of Jackie’s latest video, 'Only Have You', directed by Megan Cardwell. Part of Jackie’s series of releasing a new video a month.

“I don’t ever want my songs to sound the same.”
