Venna
Venna
Venna is the music of heather and her husband marky. It is the sort of music that focuses on the simplicity of life, and the fragility of being human. So far it's comprised of a couple of guitars and a few voices. More should be expected. Here's what people are saying about Venna

"...humanly imperfect and honest music made by real people who love what they do." - Can You See The Sunset

"...showcases intimate acoustic folk instrumentation and breathy, emotive female vocals... the simple combination of guitar and undeniable vocal talent, with an open-mic coffeeshop vibe." - the Illinois Entertainer

"As Heather sang the chorus of "Eulogy", "here are my hands", I realized that this was her offering to the world... Crafted with care, this is an exciting debut from Heather and Marky's hands to yours." - Gapers Block

"They boast impeccably written acoustic folk/pop songwriting as well as comfortably beautiful vocals... a surprising and wonderful mixture of intriguing folk songwriting and gorgeous female vocals." - Independent Clauses

Brendan Losch
28-year-old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Brendan Losch, manipulates your typical range of instruments like the guitar and keyboard, but supplements his melodies with more lively instruments like the glockenspiel, lap steel, banjo, melodica, and musical saw. Born into a musical family in suburban Chicago, Brendan picked up his first instrument, the clarinet, in the 5th grade. He then picked up the guitar in the 6th grade and has been creating music ever since.

Inspired by life experiences and the surrounding environment, Brendan composes a heartfelt sound imbued with intimate chords, melodic vocals and simple yet contemplative lyrics. His infectious harmonies will remind you of the loved blanket you slip around your shoulders on a chilly fall night.

In January 2005 he teamed up with friend Frankie Holthouse (Plug-In Studio) to record Better the Second Time, his first solo EP. In the fall of 2006, Brendan himself recorded and mixed his debut full-length record Listen With Your Heart, which was then mastered by Mike Nau (Page France/Cotton Jones). Until We Meet Again, a collection of some lo-fi demos, was released in early 2008, while Brendan also embarked on a project to write and record one brand new song a week.

Playing at well-known venues in Chicago such as Schubas, Beat Kitchen, Bottom Lounge, and Subterranean has enabled Brendan to establish himself as a respected musician. He has shared the stage with popular acts such as Nicole Atkins & the Sea, Bowerbirds, The Dodos, Greg Laswell, Jenny Owen Youngs, Phosphorescent, Brooke Waggoner, Joshua James, Cotton Jones, Surfer Blood, Golden Shoulders, Rue Royale, Horse In The Sea, etc. His websites (myspace, bandcamp, sound cloud) provide a nice place to sit back, relax, and listen to his latest work of art.

Currently, Brendan is writing/recording as much as possible. A new record, Low, is in the works and will feature nine tracks. As for shows, Brendan is mostly playing in the Midwest, but will one day hit the road and tour.
