CRITIC’S PICK: This young Texas blues-rocking guitarist has the imprimatur of fan Kenny Wayne Shepherd who brought her along to open some tours. That and three solid albums, including Real Gone (2023) has put her on the roots radar as a promising player somewhat in the Samantha Fish mold. Venable sings well and writes solid songs, but when she lets loose on a blistering solo you’ll see why Shepherd was so impressed. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Texas blues/rock guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Ally Venable has made her fiery presence known around the world since the release of her debut album at 16. Now, with her fifth solo effort Real Gone dropping on Ruf Records March 10, 2023, Venable has come of age.

At 23, Venable is already an important artist in the roots music world. Her name has grown in stature with each new album and high-energy gig. She’s an absolutely ripping guitar player with style and tone for days, a commanding singer, and a songwriter with the power to make blues music that speaks to contemporary fans. The new record, produced by Grammy winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi), features guest appearances by Joe Bonamassa and living legend Buddy Guy.

Venable is that rare musician who can take her old-school influences like Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughan and create music that brings their spirits to today’s listeners where they live. Together with Isaac Pulido (drums) EJ Bedford (bass), she gives audiences an entertaining show packed with musical muscle and relatable songs about living, growing, and evolving. When asked where her songs emerge from, Ally replied “I try to write about what goes on in my life, or try to write about something I know others can relate to. We all go through things and it’s okay to have feelings about something going on in your life.”
