If The Weeknd and John Mayer adopted Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift’s child and raised it as their own = Venture Still.
Chris Carter is a tall man and plays guitar while singing. Elvin Holderfield is a short half-asian man and plays piano. Rob Wiberg has very large hands that he uses to play bass. Together they are friends. Together they are Venture Still.
Based around the catchy songwriting of their front man, Chris Carter, Venture Still blends thick organic textures with electronic elements to produce their take on alternative pop/rock. Formed in the fall of 2016, Venture Still’s music is the result of three close friends coming together to express their shared passion. Drawing from a spectrum of experiences, Carter’s lyrics embody the harmony and dissonance found in everyday struggles. Backing Carter, is bassist Rob Wiberg and pianist Elvin Holderfield. Inspired by bass greats like Victor Wooten, Rob provides funky slap riffs and creamy melodies that give each song a contagious groove. Elvin, a classically trained pianist and composer, lays down a bed of textures from piano to ambient pads.
