The level of feeling that a seventeen year old artist can bring to the stage can be simply amazing. As their performance begins your mind isn't fully grasping what you are seeing and hearing on stage. You notice a level of established comfort that radiates from the young performer.
The mind can easily form an early opinion that it's just another novelty act because it rationalizes the question, "How could anyone be deeply in tune with the blues at just seventeen?" Then as the show progresses it happens, the age factor simply erodes, it goes completely away.
Obviously, it would be one thing for the young performer to bust an axe with perfection at seventeen but it's quite another when they already possess the stage presence of the relaxed, older blues artist. It's a very cool experience to witness as it backs up the age old adage that the blues is a feeling and of course that feeling can reside in anyone, at any age.
Overall, it is this set of combined abilities which are possessed by both young and older artists alike that allows them to present the blues in a mind blowing, magnificent way.
Ally Venable is a seventeen year old female blues rock artist who possesses these abilities. She immediately transforms her audiences from being in that initial curiosity phase into the "this is way cool" phase.
Festival talent buyers are noticing Ally and she continues to perform at such notable events as The T Bone Walker Blues Festival in Longview, Texas
and the Mud Bug Festival in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Ally Venable is a young blues rocker that is following the original footsteps of her female contemporaries and may well be the rising star on the horizon.
Ally Venable, simply amazing!
