Errant Venture / Bio

Errant Venture Rocks!
What more could you want than catchy riffs, sing-along choruses and wailing solos? Loud guitars, pumping bass, thumping drums and gravelly vocal melodies? Bass solos, drums solos, interesting musical bridges? A free lunch? Errant Venture will give you all that you desire, except the free lunch.

Errant Venture are influenced by a huge variety of artists, particularly in the genres of classic rock and early heavy metal, though you will find pinches of other flavours such as funk, blues, punk and progressive rock. They combine elements from these musical influences with everything they find in real life to create a platform of dynamic rock n' roll that is rich in energy, coated with electrifying guitars, layered with pounding drums, filled with super tasty funky bass and topped off with a melodic vocal cherry.

The band was formed in early 2008 in Melbourne, Australia under the name Mother Superior. They found themselves a pair of guitarists and a very talented singer, Darren. After their first gig the two guitarists left and were replaced by Ben eventually changing their name to Errant Venture. After a short while Scotty decided to leave and Joel took his place. In this incarnation Errant Venture played live shows extensively, including a support slot for the mighty Aussie rock legends Rose Tattoo and recorded their debut self-titled EP. Joel has now also moved on, and the drums have been taken over by the amazing Andy, with whom they have recently recorded their first full-length album, which will be released early 2014.
