Drawing on the blues roots of her home in east Texas as well as the style of the late Texas blues rocker Stevie Ray Vaughan, 17-year-old Ally Venable is gaining attention across the country. As VOA’s Greg Flakus reports from Houston, the high school girl from Kilgore, Texas has just released a new CD with backing from some old pros.

Texas Teenager Rocks the Blues in New CD
‘No Glass Shoes’ by the Ally Venable Band and released by Conner Ray Music, is the debut album for this rising star.
The 17-year-old Texas female blues artist has a strong voice and a great range. We think she belts out impressively deep and powerful vocals, and her love for the blues totally shines through. Reaching over fifty years into the classic rock/blues past for inspiration and influence, Ally cites Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, and Joe Bonamassa among the blues experts she’s used to nurture her musical career.
