Their soul music meets rock mmusic enlightens, uplifts and instantly changes your mood to that of exhilarating pleasure. With three albums underway and formerly opening up for MArsha Ambrosia and Monifah, this group is definitely budding into something amazing.

While they hide behind the Alternative Rock-n-Soul umbrella for booking purposes, they are known to fuse Alternative Rock-n-Soul with jazz, funk, bluegrass, RnB, hip-hop, acoustic rock, soft rock, country, gospel and all sorts of other genres. If you put The Fray, Jazmine Sullivan, The Roots, and Michael McDonald together you might just come up with a sound similar to theirs! Taylor (Toby) is the lead vocalist and writer of all VEnT lyrics. Occasionally, she plays the guitar and bass...

I ran across this group while they were playing at Northstar in North Philly. There songs are all original, but they feel as though you can hear them on the radio right now. Which I bet isnt to far away from this groups future.
Their background vocals are totally on point, its very rare to come across a set of musicians that truly practice and are musically effective in their delivery. Their sound to me is like a soulful mix of hip-hop and R&B which is very unique to its own. You have got to visit there myspace page and hear their song VEnT and LIVE absolutely sick, sick, sick!!! They have an album release coming up next year on January 25th at Warmdaddy's another hot spot for great live music and awsome food. We'll try to post some of their engagements coming up on our "EVENT & NEWS" page to keep you posted on anything new thats coming up with them.
