Jackie Venson – See What You Want

  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 .     Click the link below for the Jackie Venson website .

 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  !

Daniela Andrade – Don’t Care

 

    andrade 

This is a song I came across when I was surfing  YouTube . It was in one of those ads that they play before the video you really want to see comes on , you know the ad that you have to wait a few seconds before you can skip it .

   Anyway before I had time to hit the skip button this song really grab me ,so I click the ad . I couldn’t help but love the voice and guitar that is so perfect together . Daniela Andrade has  that kind of voice , she just doesn’t need a band to fill or make the atmosphere of the song .

   The subject of this song is not about love but just the opposite . It sounds more about the end of love which may be as common as love . It is definitely a great subject for a song .  Also , I have to say I love the sound of the recording .  It could have easily been ruined by the mix , but all is perfect .

  There are very few songs that become instantly likable to me   but this one did and in only a few seconds .

    Anyway I decided I had to share this one with you .

Jess Greenberg – Pride and Joy

Pride and Joy   by   Jess Greenberg

    Cover songs are probably the biggest help an up and coming singer / musician has going for him or her . There’s very few who get anywhere with a song that has never been heard before . If you ask a successful singer how they got started I am sure they would admit to a few cover songs with a few of there own originals thrown into the blend . 

  Here is a great example of  a real talent singing a song I already know I like . The fact that it is done so well proves her talent . Not only is she a good singer , her guitar playing is top notch . I listened to one of her covers and that was enough for me to want to listen to them all . 

Here is her cover of  Pride and Joy  originally sung by Stevie Ray Vaughan
