Where are you and your band from?
Born and raised in Austin, Texas!
What type of music did you hear the most growing up?
Classical music, Motown, R&B, Blues, and Pop
What made you first realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
My father played music professionally as well as my brother, I always had them as an example of the fact that one can make money playing music. I also grew up learning the piano and fell in love with it and eventually became absolutely obsessed with it. These two things combined I realized it was the only thing I wanted to do.
What sets you apart from other bands/artists today?
I have my own sound and my own style, I am the only me on Earth!
For those who have never seen or heard your music before, how would you describe your music for the public audience? Exciting, intense, melody, and groovy as hell.
Are there any stories surrounding your songs that you’d care to share?
I have a new EP coming out called “Transcends”. I wrote these songs about my self growth over the last 5 years, some of it influenced by how much picking up the guitar changed my life. Some of it is influenced by rough experiences I’ve had the last few years. I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!
What do you do with your time away from music?
I usually hang out with the people and beings that I love, sometimes i unwind and play PS4.
Any upcoming shows/tours/news?
Yes, I am in NYC in May, Europe (Germany and Czech Republic) in June, Alaska in July, Kentucky in August, California/Arizona in September, and out east in October. Check jackievenson.com for all details and i hope to see you all!
