I first noticed Jackie Venson when I was standing in the middle of my living room and just happen to see a SafeAuto commercial appear on my tv . The contest was in 2012 and at the time I had never heard of Jackie Venson . I really was only paying attention to the mention of a contest and immediately went to the SafeAuto website as the commercial directed viewers to . The contest consisted of a chance for a singer / writer to write a small jingle about SafeAuto Insurance . Venson made her video and sent it in . It was apparent to me that Venson was the winner or should have been (in my humble opinion ). Again this is the first time I had heard her sing and I would chance to say the same might be true for many of her fans that doesn’t live near Austin , Texas .
Here is her demo video for SafeAuto .
Looking at Google search results I found that she had been busy building her career . Since I am blogging as a total fan with no more connection than any other distant fan , I can only assume that being raised in Austin , Texas has to be a big plus as it would be for any musician . However there is still a necessity for natural talent and Miss Venson seems to be blessed with quite a bit . Being a guitarist myself , though not quite on the same level , I admire her playing and for her love of writing music and playing guitar .
But as it turns out she is also a talented piano player and is a graduate of Berklee College of Music where Jackie studied composition and studio production. She has accumulated 15 years of piano experience, 8 years of singing, 9 years of songwriting, and 4 years of intensive guitar study.
But even after all of her experience and education it still comes down to the music she produces and I have to say that I am a fan of all her videos I listen to on the internet , mainly YouTube .
Her channel on YouTube is here : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYA3ErHXiiufRE03fLwcLoA .
The video on the home page of her channel is See What You Want .
Love this video .
As most musicians nowadays she has her own website that contains a lot of information links and the latest on current shows . So instead of listing her links and sending you in different directions , it’s best that you visit her website ( very well done ) for her music and info .

Here is the latest video on her YouTube channel . The Love I Give .
All piano on this one .
This write up probably doesn’t do her music justice but it’s a big bill to fill !
