Ally Venable: Texas Honey Review

Once again, Ally Venable teams up with bassist Bobby Wallace and drummer Elijah Owings for a gritty and fierce third album, Texas Honey. At just 20 years old, Ally Venable, lead guitarist and vocalist, stuns listeners with her powerful voice and electrifying guitar solos. The trio are without a doubt a band that will continue to impress. 

The album opens with “Nowhere To Hide”, a track with an addicting guitar melody and dynamic vocal line that instantly showcases Ally’s range. The following track, “Broken”, features a crunchy guitar sound and impressive solo. Despite the lyrics, the song is feisty and bold. It is really a fusion of the more high energy songs on the album with the more mellow ones like “Blind to Bad Love” and “One Sided Misunderstanding”. These songs reveal a more melancholy side to the band with their slower tempos and lower pitched drumlines. Until the very end, Texas Honey is full of surprises with “Love Struck Baby”, a retro-style track that makes you want to dance, and the final song on the album, “Careless Love” which is the perfect sing-along song for your next road trip. 

With such variety, Texas Honey is an excellent demonstration of Ally Venable’s versatility and talent. Venable can take her music in so many different directions; it will be really exciting to see how her next release compares to this one.
