Behind The Song: "I Will Find A Way" by Jackie Venson

Hey guys!

Art is so very personal.

In pretty much every aspect;
the artists pour a lot of personality and personal feelings into their art,
and those who receive the art have the option to interpret it whichever personal way the choose to.

And sometimes we might forget just how personal art is.
But our behind the song feature is definitely here to remind us all,
by getting musicians to talk about the story behind their work.

Today I invite you to learn more about a track which is definitely going to empower you.

- Behind The Song -
"I Will Find A Way" by Jackie Venson

Jackie Venson is a musician from Austin, Texas (US). 
Her sound blends Blues, Rock, R'n'B & Soul and therefore creates a wonderfully unique vibe.
"A woman, a guitar, and the truth.", is the description you'll find when you look up this powerhouse.
Jackie originally started out as a classical pianist, but picked up the guitar shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music.
She soon made the jump from the classical side of music, to writing and recording raw and gritty Blues.

Jackie recently released her latest single, "Cover My Eyes", as a follow up to her EP, "Transcends" which was released on September 30th of 2017.
This EP led to Jackie being nominated as "artist of the year" at the Austin Music Awards, as well as a guest guitarist spot on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

We asked Jackie to tell us more about her previous single, "I Will Find A Way", because we think there are a lot of people out there who need to hear this track. 

Today we get to find out what inspired Jackie to write this brilliant track:

""I Will Find A Way" is my fight song.
The year of 2018 has been a trying one, in personal and worldly ways. We as people have gone through times this year that made us question how we're going to wake up tomorrow, how we're going to continue on into next year and the years to come.

More personally speaking, I have been fighting this roller coaster of year in my own ways, having to leave people behind who aren't good for me - even if I had thought these people were folks I could trust. When having to call into question relationships that have spanned a half a decade or more, one I started to heavy, like I would cave under the weight. This is where this song has come into play, pun intended.

No matter how scary or uncertain things may be, no matter how much it might seem like I've hit a dead end, I go to sleep every night with the thought, "I will figure it out... I will find a way.""
