"VEnT Isn’t Shy, They’re Confident"

VEnT is an alternative rock/soul band that will make you smile. They are two hardworking, badass chicks from Philadelphia. We take a closer look at their new release “Join Me or Watch Me Win." - On Air With Sir Staff

"Alternative Rock/Soul Bands, R&B Singers, and Producers Dominate #PhillySoundSessions!!"

The opening act featured VEnT (@TobyVent), an alternative rock/soul band, whose lead singer Toby blew audiences away with her powerful vocals and strong lyrics. The band’s robust sound provided an off kilter night for the seemingly hip-hop centered Philly Sound Sessions. -

"Just Budding: VEnT Music"

If you're looking for soulful, out the box, live music, then lend your ear to VEnT Music. This five member Philadelphia based group has touched the souls and hearts of many. I had the pleasure of attending a live performance and I immediately gained goosebumps within the first five seconds. 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. - JournalisticChic


WOW...Taylor Martin and VENT is just WOW. 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. Or just visit there myspace page by clicking here!

"The Original Scene"

VEnT is an energetic Alternative Rock-n-Soul band from Philadelphia, PA. 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...
