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 performance. 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. - Callanwolde Fine Arts Center

"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 a very few black “folkies” available.

Veronika is an exceptional talent. With her voice and guitar, she can really open hearts, feelings and emotions. She touches her audiences deeply with her blues and rock folk sound.” - Clarence Rosa, Coordinator

You have such a nice vibe! Your guitar playing is very easy going and just what your voice needs. Your voice is very organic sounding. The way you are is very attractive. People really connect with your songs. - John Z. Stephan


Blues Passions A Cognac
Sud Quest
TONIC DAY. With her pruified "Folk blues", The American artist kept the public joyful at the end of the afternoon.


Veronika' Acoustique


Finally the magic came from Veronika Jackson's purified "folk acoustic music."

Alone with her guitar, she blew a fresh air at the end of the day, this Thursday. Veronika's first Blues Passion performance had the effect of Harry Manx blues; just like a golden nugget, which surface, from the bottom of a river, where nobody expected her.

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

You Exhibited a comfortable, yet confident stage presence and performed effortlessly. Your music artistry was apparent. You played the guitar beautifully and your voice trancended all the usual comparisons to folk-blues greats like Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading. Your personal rendition of "House of Rising Sun" was an unexpected delight.
