Video Premiere: “Flying” by Jackie Venson

If you’re feeling in need of a soulful pick-me-up, Jackie Venson’s latest video for “Flying” should do the trick. The prolific guitarist/vocalist combines rhythmic groove, smooth vocals and a killer guitar solo, all of which speak to her raw and multifaceted talent. The track is from her upcoming EP, Transcends, due out September 29. On the visuals behind the track, Venson says:

“Flying is about universal love and the fact that we are all connected. The video is about 3 different characters who spent their childhoods together but grew up and found themselves in very different places. When they meet again as adults, it’s as though they were picking up right where they left off. This is a great representation of this universal love that we all experience, something I believe holds this whole world together.”
