Austin’s Jackie Venson trained at Berklee College of Music on piano, but an entire world of sound and possibility opened up for her after graduation. Venson picked up the guitar in 2011, turning herself into an in-demand blues shredder. Over time, she’s added new elements, culminating in three very different releases this year that showcase her electronic side and her command of a stage. Her fourth album of 2020, Vintage Machine, drops on October 30, and on November 20, she’ll celebrate with a socially-distanced show at ACL Live that also doubles as a fundraiser for Black Fret.

This week on My KUTX, Venson debuts as our guest DJ, offering up a mix of songs that highlight her own musical journey, her influences, and her desert island favorites. Hear Jackie Venson’s My KUTX on Saturday, October 24 at 6 p.m. or anytime at the top of the page.

Austin’s Christelle Bofale makes songs that take their time. Her music unfolds at its own pace, asking you to slow down to its level and notice how a few ingredients–a singular voice and finger-picked guitar–can be so powerful. With an EP and a single, Bofale has already crafted her own particular dreamworld where folk, indie rock, and jazz can easily talk to each other. She also recently contributed a track to the compilation To The People Of The Land: Carrizo/Comecrudo Solidarity Compilation, an album that benefits Texas indigenous rights.

This week on My KUTX, Bofale shares a guest DJ set that’s both a perfect introduction to her own style and a nice soundtrack for shorter days and (slightly) cooler weather. Hear Christelle Bofale’s My KUTX on Saturday, October 17 at 6 p.m. or anytime at the top of the page.

Playlist:

[intro music: Christelle Bofale – “Moving On, Getting On”]

1. St. Vincent – “Save Me From What I Want”

2. Beach House – “Sparks”
