Venus Hum

Nashville, TN, might not be the first place for a dream pop band to come together, but the birthplace of American music was a nice fit for Venus Hum. Comprised of vocalist Annette Strean and multi-instrumentalists Kip Kubin and Tony Miracle, the trio formed in 1999. Strean, who grew up with a logger father in Whitefish, MT, found Nashville to be her cultural calling. She grew up singing show tunes for fun, but her fondness for the Cure and Kate Bush pushed her creatively. Strean fell for kitschy films from the 50s, too. Later, she designed her own clothing from vintage apparel. Miracle had a similar upbringing. He was locked into typical family suburbia in Cincinnati, OH, and sought comfort in England's new wave reign. Depeche Mode and the Cure allowed him to explore various electronic dance acts of the '80s. Kubin was a Jersey kid. A friend of his had a dad who made his own keyboards, so Kubin naturally picked up the instrument. From there, Strean, Miracle, and Kubin connected. Miracle set up Chessington Synth Labs Studio in his basement, and Venus Hum created a lush, dynamic pop sound. Their self-titled debut appeared on Mono-Fi in spring 2001.

Shows in and around Nashville were successful for Venus Hum. Lucky for them, electroclash producer/scenester Larry Tee took Venus Hum under his wing. The band appeared at Tee's Electroclash Festival in New York City during summer 2002, and Stereolab asked Venus Hum to open for them in Nashville. The Hummingbirds EP coincided with a joint U.S. tour with Sing-Sing that October. Six months later, their proper full-length album Big Beautiful Sky was released. After a series of problems that included issues with their label and nodes on Strean's vocal chords, Venus Hum went on a two-year hiatus. During that time, Strean underwent physical and vocal therapy, Kubin became a filmmaker, and Miracle recorded an album under the name Satellite City. In 2005, the trio reconvened and began recording together and individually; the results were the acoustic/electronic manipulations of their second album, The Colors in the Wheel, which arrived in summer 2006. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Fabulous and too good to describe, that has to be left to you!
Stop comparing and just listen to this wonderful music with the vocals of an angel. I'm a fan and can't wait to see live!!
This lovely lady just destroyed the audience at an outdoor venue with the blue man group when she opened for them. Had the whole place just completely vibrating! One of the first times I stopped while traveling home to find their CD and buy it.
Wow, to be invite in person and have to endure such crap and pretend to like it! This is bad live or otherwise!
Never heard of 'em til a friend who is aquainted with Tony Miracle invited me to a live recording they were making for a video about 1.5 yrs ago. About 50 people in the room. They played a bunch of tunes, including a few twice for the sake of the video. By request they played "Alice" which Tony said they hadn't played in years, but it sounded almost as if they'd rehearsed it. Very talented trio IMHO. I'm a big fan now!
wow, amazing!
I love Venus Hum! My dad learnad about her on his Blue Man Group concert DVD, and then he introduced me to her songs. Now she's one of my favorites :D
Good stuff

I enjoyed reading the bio and am glad to learn more about Venus Hum. I'm just surprised that no mention was made of their tour with Blue Man Group and Tracy Bonham. It was this tour that introduced me to one of my favorite groups - Venus Hum - !!!

Great band! I can't believe they've been around since 2001 and I'm just now hearing about them!

First time hearing it, and its awesome. Funky, Jamming, groovy bit, beautiful voice and trippy cool lyrics. Very nicely put together, unique style.
lol @ chux....

what?????
Where have you been? I love this music!!! Thank you, Pandora.
She has a rich, full vocal quality. I saw her perform with the Blue Man Group and she was great!
Chux.. for your information. . She was around before regina spektor came onto the scene.. So go back to your generational music and be quiet.

My favorite artist! Incredible vocals and music. Very unique.
Regina Spektor rip off singing over slowed down really old Paula Abdul reject beats. My heart goes out to the 99 cent bins in the world that will no doubt have to house this audio discharge. Next....
I like this :oD
Great stuff. She has an awesome voice
