Jackie Venson's new music video brings us more of the guitar-centric dynamic blues that has put her on the map.

Jackie Venson has been rising in recognition quickly with her dynamic take on contemporary, guitar-centric blues. Notably, she has already garnered the eye of blues mainstay Gary Clark Jr., touring with him throughout 2017. Last year also saw the release of Venson's EP, Transcends, which she is now following up with a new video for her single, "Rollin and Tumblin".

In many ways, with Venson's deeply soulful tone wrapping itself warmly around its frank lyricism, it feels like a revival of classic blues. Her means of handling her guitar, though, carry an individualistic power that shines on Venson's knack for modern composition.

Venson tells PopMatters, "Sometimes in order to heal from great pain you need to open the wound and allow yourself to feel it. This song is my allowance to myself and my acceptance of my broken heart."
