“To change the world we first must change ourselves,” croons Austin-born soul/pop guitarist/vocalist Jackie Venson on her newest track from the EP, Transcends. “Fight” shows off the artist’s trademark empowering lyricism and undeniable musical talent that caught the eye of Gary Clark Jr., with whom she toured last year.

Also known for her skill as a guitarist, Venson’s dynamic approach to music, honed as a student at Boston’s Berklee College, brings together blues, soul and pop in a way you’ve never heard before. Giovanni Lazarini captures this dynamism in a compelling live recording of the track premiering exclusively on AFROPUNK. If you need some empowering, this is the perfect video for you!

“Fight is a song about inner growth and the desire to improve oneself,” explains Venson. “I am debuting this solo arrangement featuring the drum machine, a new addition to my show.”
