Ventage, a female Urban Pop group, made up of two sisters with voices that creates a blend that is out of this world. Jakiya Maree and Lexi Simone started singing together at the age of 7. They sung at talent shows, home goings(funerals), weddings, and family gatherings. As they got older they noticed that they had a love for other forms of musical art. Already possessing instrumental vocals, they wanted to bring more to the table that would set them apart from other talented African American young ladies. So, they incorporated the love for their instruments and started to accompany themselves, Lexi Simone strumming on the guitar, and Jakiya Maree playing keys on the piano.
After 10 years, still singing together, they decided to take their talent and skills to another level. Self teaching themselves to become better with their instruments, and writing songs. January 2013, Ventage was formed.
The name Ventage was inspired by their style, songwriting, and goal to bring back timeless music. Not wanting to spell vintage the correct way, and wanting to be different; Jakiya and Lexi decided to spell it with an "e" to signify that they are "venting" life experiences and their thoughts, while sending a message that all people of all "ages" can relate to.
Ventage, recently being formed, performed their first charity event in Cleveland, OH, at the Courage to Change graduation ceremony, held by the Metanoia Project. They have been to major venues such as the Apollo Theater in NYC, auditioned for Americas Got Talent!, Festival of Light, and Happy to be Nappy event just to name a few. They've also received recognition via Z107.9, a Radio One station in Cleveland, OH, for their outstanding performance.
Ventage strives to create music for the soul, heart, and mind, that people from different walks of life can relate to; while moving their feet and bobbing their heads.
It's all in the name, "Ventage!" Quality music made today, that will become better with age; new timeless music.
"We are very hard workers," said Lexi.
Jakiya followed saying, "And we are determined to achieve our goals."
Ventage is currently working on their EP, projected to be completed mid December. It is expected to be released early first quarter. The EP will be full of life, Urban Pop at it's best; like one hasn't heard before. So, look out for Ventage, the new voice of their generation.
