Rising blues star Jackie Venson took the title of Artist of the Year in the 2018 Austin360 Awards and 2019 is already shaping up to be another big year for her. Venson has a new album "Joy" due out on April 5 with a release show at the Paramount Theater set for April 12.

To get ready for the show, she's launched a new live stream series featuring all original music including songs from the new album. The stream will also feature Venson's solo sampler show.

"Think original music and guitar shredding meets DJ transitions and vibe, a very unique combination... Since I can seamlessly transition to different songs, the stream is essentially a 45 minute jam. It is pretty hypnotic," Venson says.
