By the age of 13, she started her own band and through her early influence of Stevie Ray Vaughan captured the passion and yearning for the blues music genre. Her early album releases No Glass Shoes (2016) and Puppet Show (2018) started her fanbase, but it was 2019’s album Texas Honey which hit #2 Billboard Blues Chart, as well as the rocking sets on Ruf’s European Blues Caravan tour, that propelled her internationally.

In 2021, Venable released another Billboard Blues charting album, Heart of Fire, which challenged her to write not only about love but the unguarded honesty of feeling pain. “On this album, I really wanted to create a tone of overcoming your struggles and persevering through them,” she explains. Mentor and featured artist on this album, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, lends his guitar skills to the SiriusXM Bluesville charted song, “Bring on the Pain”.
