Singled Out: Jackie Venson's Lost in Time

Jackie Venson

Blues rocker Jackie Venson is gearing up to release her new album 'Jackie Venson Live!' and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the song "Lost in Time". Here is the story:

My single "Lost in Time" from my upcoming album 'Jackie Venson Live' is an anthem to all who understand being unique and the fight to maintain that spirit of uniqueness. When I went to college I was hoping to be surrounded by folks who understood uniqueness and nurtured it however it was rather nave of me to expect that. Just like any place with a large group of people thrown together, there will be challenges. There will always be folks who are insecure and feel the need to lash out in order to ease their insecurity, there will also always be folks who rise above it all and lift up others around them in the process. This push and pull of people is what I experienced as a young adult and it was extremely valuable to see the dynamic.

I remember my first year there was rather complicated. I was excited to be in a new place but I also had to take a lot of required prerequisite courses. This was frustrating because some of the teachers I encountered in these base level courses were jaded and rather uninterested in their own material. I remember finishing my first year there and wondering if it were going to get better. I am glad I stuck it out because by the time I got to my second year I was already able to choose the classes I actually wanted to take. The teachers were so vibrant, the classes were very interesting and loaded with incredibly useful material I still use to this day.

"Lost in Time" is also about not giving up hope that better times will come, that there's always usefulness in every experience no matter how positive or negative. Life is meant to be three hundred and sixty degrees of emotions and happenings so excluding or discounting something simply because it's not what one had expected will leave one empty and incomplete. In all of this it is important to never lose oneself, to never let life beat one up so much that the spirit to fight for ones happiness and beliefs has been lost. Keep the fire going friends!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
