Performance Reviews:

"I enjoyed watching and listening to Veronika''s performance. She exhibits a comfortable, yet confident stage presence. She managed to effortlessly get the audience involved in her original songs, as well as delighted them with surprising renditions of old songs they already knew. She also managed to get them smiling and laughing and having a good time. Her musical artistry was apparent as well, she played her guitar beautifully and her voice transcended all the usual comparisons to folk-blues greats like Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading.

~Derek Patterson, Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, Atlanta, GA~

Veronika Jackson never fails to delight our audiences. Her style draws on blues and traditional folk, but add to that her own experiences on the street with the less fortunate and you have social commentary that is rare among local contemporary folk musicians. The fact that she is black adds depth to her style and makes her one of very few black “folkies” available”.

~Clarence Rosa, Coordinator, Hungry Ear Coffeehouse, Atlanta, Georgia~

“Veronika, you command attention when you walk on stage, just being who you are, you appear both powerful and genuine. You are comfortable and that comforts me and I suspect anyone who sees you. The way you connect with your audiences is exceptional and I am left with the impression I have heard and intelligent and approachable human-being”.

~Ernie Williams, Banjo Player/Vocalist~
