Mean Venus / Bio

MEAN VENUS singer/songwriter, known merely by the initial ‘J’, would recruit long time friend and lead guitarist Marcelo Cardosa, who helped produce and write the PCP CD. On rhythm guitar, J brought in former Trimm guitarist, Adrian Freyre. After years of stage and studio experience, Adrian developed his own style of crunching guitar riffs that he counterbalanced with a gifted sense of melody. Once in the band, Adrian requested that J hire his Trimm cohort, Russ Ippoliti to play drums. The most recent member to join MEAN VENUS is bass playing madman Chigger, whom is no stranger to the New Jersey music scene. Chigger played bass for the popular North Jersey bands Smoke Star and Hostel Inc., which featured Ray West from Spread Eagle.
