Tanya Venom on SoundBetter

Professional Recording and Touring Guitarist, Singer, and Songwriter for Heavy Metal Power Trio, Stormstress | Official PRS Guitars Pulse Artist | Berklee College of Music Graduate | Award Winning Songwriter and Performer

Hi! My name is Tanya Venom and my two greatest passions in life are writing and performing music. I want to help you turn your dream into a reality and inject some Venom into your track! \m/

I am a Berklee College of Music grad and PRS Guitars Pulse Artist most known for my work as Frontwoman and songwriter of the all-female heavy metal power trio, Stormstress. I've had the honor to perform with artists such as Cherie Currie (The Runaways), Melissa Etheridge, Liz Borden (Lizzie Borden & The Axes), Joan Osborne, & Delta Rae, and have opened for acts including Bon Jovi, Nita Strauss, and Lita Ford. My work with Stormstress has received New England Music Award Nominations for Artist of the Year, Metal Band of the Year and Album of the Year. For 10 years I was the lead guitarist, backing vocalist, and songwriter for the rock band, Flight of Fire, with which I most notably wrote "My Last Gamble" (HMMA Winner - Best Americana Song) and "She's A Badass" feat. Cherie Currie (HMMA Nominee - Best Rock Song), as well as toured the US & Europe.

I have played guitar for 19 years now and have been lead singing professionally for 5, with the addition of harsh vocals in the past 2 years. To my honor, my voice has been compared to vocalists such as Dio, Ann Wilson (Heart), and Lzzy Hale (Halestorm). I specialize in rock & metal but also have experience in blues, pop, & related genres.

    Tanya added vocals and guitars (lead & rythm) to our drum-bass track. BAM, she nailed it 😀🙏🤘 She really made the track sound awesome.
    She is professional, very easy to work with and open for ideas and also contribute with suggestions etc.

    This has been an amazing experience to work with Tanya Venom of Stormstress on my Who.iAm song, L.M.K. She is a joy to work, she is all about the music. Tanya Venom is a premiere guitarist and musician!!! and having her involved in my project made it special. Add some extra feelings in my song, Something unique, with someone who understands and feels the music. Shes a true professional, original and helpful. Oh and a bad ass!!! 143

    We had Tanya do a guest solo on Guitar for a special Magazine song release for the Finnish metal band Bofo Kwo. The solo was delivered with amazing passion, creativity and precision. Even though we are across the world in different time zones and we had a quite tight deadline, the work was delivered within days. That made sure we could focus on the production and deliver a top notch track. We will be forever thankful for Tanya's effort.

    The Winter Project, an all male band in Boston, wrote a duet, “Taste the Color of Your Lipstick” and after seeing Stormstress’s “You Can’t Hurt Me Now” the band agreed Tanya was the Female Lead we were looking for to complete the song. She came to the studio on time and ready to howl. Tanya added great vocal ideas to the melody and was able to flip from key to key on harmonizing with ease. She brought the song to life. It was great working with her and I hope to work with her again.

    Tanya Venom has been an inspiration as well as being instrumental in helping me move my musical journey forward. She created harmonies to my song Spin of the Wheel and recorded on its release also. You can stream it on Spotify and other music media. She is also in the music video on YouTube or www.Dutchboyblues.com Tanya Venom can also be heard doing harmonies on some of my other songs; Walk with me, Up On Stage. She will also be featured on upcoming releases that haven’t dropped yet. I highly recommend her for vocals, guitar, songwriting, etc.,. Basically, she is just a very talented 🤘🎶🤘

    I am a singer-songwriter and filmmaker from Detroit, Michigan. I hired Tanya Venom and her sister Tia to do backup vocals/arrangements for a song I recently recorded with my band Chain Reaction. The song was included on a new documentary I am co-directing and producing. Tanya did an amazing job on vocals. It exceeded our expectations! I'd work with her again in a heartbeat!

    Not only is Tanya an incredible guitarist and singer, but she’s and incredible person as well! She’s always a pleasure to work with, and I’m glad I was able to have her on my upcoming single!
