Today we’d like to introduce you to Venture.
Venture, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have always been a performer, ever since I was little, I loved the feeling and adrenaline I felt being on a stage. I loved anything that involved music, I learned the turntables, danced hip hop, performed musical theater, and was in choir. After high school, I was inspired by the changes in my life and I began to write those stories and feeling into songs. I moved to Arizona and I decided that music was what I wanted to do, it was the one consistent thing about my life and it was always there when I needed it. I worked really hard at the time since I was a new independent artist, meeting new people, writing new songs, making music videos and just focusing. I had thrown a few shows, premiered my music video in the movie theaters, and performed with Lupe Fiasco, Hippie Sabotage, and more. I had always wanted to move to LA, I just wasn’t sure when or how. Finally, an opportunity came and I just went for it. Now it’s only a year since I moved here and I just put out my first debut EP, #HEARTBREAKSUMMER and I can’t believe how far I have come.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Following your dream isn’t easy, and if it was I don’t believe it would be worth it. I have most definitely had more losses then successes, but without those, I don’t believe I’d be in the position I am now. What I know now, it’s so crucial to build a solid team and foundation, people you trust can depend on, and can create with. If you can find that you will be able to do anything you put your mind to.
Alright – so let’s talk work. Tell us about work– what should we know?
I am Venture, creator and artist. I plan to keep putting out music, and inspiring those that I can reach through my journey.
#HEARTBREAKSUMMER is the first of many, and I look forward to continue growing as an artist.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
