Neon Venus

Neon Venus

BandAlternativeLatin

Our music is a combination of pop/rock and alternative influences. That means many of the songs are melodic, yet they can also have power behind them, and they are alternative because although pop, they always have a great sense of originality. We perform songs in English and Spanish.

Biography

Neon Venus creates a mix of original, bilingual dance/rock music with Anglo and Latin sounds and rhythms.

-Two songs from their latest CD “Irresistible” were pre-nominated for the 49th Annual Grammys of 2007 in two categories: “Best Record of the Year” and “Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal”.

-In 2006, MTV Español (USA) aired Neon Venus’ latest video for their song “Irresistible.” The video features underwater singing sequences and shows off Lissette’s background as a synchronized swimmer. She was an athlete in the Pan Am games for Puerto Rico.

-Three other Neon Venus music videos (Beso a Beso, Step Into My Island, and Volveremos) have aired on MTV Español, VHUno (Latin VH1- USA) and/or MTV Puerto Rico. “Beso a Beso” first aired on MTV Español in 2003 and the network has aired their videos every year since.

-In 2005, MTV Español aired Neon Venus’ self-directed rockumentary based on their tour of Europe, which included cities in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Egypt and the Sinai.

-Many tracks from their records have received college and internet airplay in the US, as well as on commercial stations and shows like Rodney on the Rock, on KROQ 106.7 FM in Los Angeles.

-So far, Neon Venus’ original songs have been on more than 50,000 CDs (compilations and self-released combined) including compilations to benefit tsunami victims (check it out at Rolling Stone.com), and many compilations for top Latin rock magazine ‘Boom!”.
