Houston, Texas – Award-winning blues-rock guitarist Ally Venable to release her new CD, Puppet show, to April 13 by Connor Ray Music. The group Ally Venable consists of Ally – guitar and vocals; Elijah Owings – drums; and Bobby Wallace – bass. Special guests on Puppet show, which was produced by Rock Romano, Steve Krase (who also plays harmonica on the sessions) and Ally Venable, features guitarists Gary Hoey and Lance Lopez, as well as keyboardist Eric Steckel.

Puppet show, Ally’s second album for Connor Ray Music was recorded at Red Shack Studio in Houston and features eight original tunes written and composed by Venable, as well as two blues classics that complement his rock sound.

“I had a wonderful time writing and creating Puppet show for people with my closest musician friends, ”says Ally Venable. “I can’t wait to release this album for all blues-rock fans and hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it for them.”

Puppet show is all about the songs that connect. He exudes a sense of soul through the songwriting and guitar playing, as well as the vocals that are featured throughout the album. The record opens with a haunting riff for the song “Devil’s Son,” which stars Gary Hoey on lead guitar and Ally Venable on guitar and vocals. Together, they stir up a powerful tune that will stay in loop. The next track, “Bridges to Burn,” creates an unforgettable melody in the song, with guest artist Lance Lopez and Ally playing in harmony together to resonate a powerful statement with their guitar playing. “Sleeping Through the Storm” is another issue that portrays the message of overcoming one’s struggles and persevering through the storm that is approaching us in our lives. With convincing lyrics and solid blues-rock guitar playing, Puppet show represents the future of the blues.

“I had a blast as a guest on the song ‘Devil’s Son’,” famed rock guitarist Gary Hoey said. “Ally has maturity as a songwriter beyond her years and her guitar playing and vocals are the real deal. “Devils Son” is a badass song with a haunting riff; I had a great time playing my Highway 61 Dobro guitar on it. Well done Ally!

Adds Lance Lopez, who mentored Venable, 19, “Ally has worked really hard to become the young Guitar Slingin ‘Senorita that she is. It was such a pleasure to share my knowledge with her and to watch her grow!

Powerful singer and guitarist Ally Venable sparked excitement on the Texas blues scene. She started singing in church at a very young age, then in recent years she has started playing the guitar and has found her true passion. Protected by Lance Lopez, with her compositions and her performances on stage, this teenage musician packs a punch. Ally was East Texas Female Guitarist of the Year in 2014 and 2015.
