So what were you doing when you were 17 years old? Or if you are younger than 17, what are your plans?
Houston based, 17 year old Ally Venable is a Blues guitarist/vocalist who fronts her own band and has just released her first album titled No Glass Shoes.
Venable plays an aggressive form of modern day electric blues. She wrote 6 of the 8 tracks, which give her room to improvise and stretch out a bit. As a vocalist, she is mature beyond her years and has a powerful voice that is made for a traditional blues sound.
In some ways, she is a work in progress but if No Glass Shoes is any indication, she shows a lot of promise.
