Venbee is a rising 22 year old artist and songwriter who’s having a breakout moment out with her drum & bass tinged songs. Hailing from Kent, she’s a Chatham girl through and through, and as far from pretentious as you can get: her Instagram is all bucket hats, oversized tracksuits and toilet selfies… a refreshing breath of fresh air in the highly curated social world. And as 2023 begins she kicks off with a long list of accolades including.. NME 100 Artist for 2023, Amazon Music’s Artists To Watch 2023, Kiss FM - Future Hype, MTV PUSH UK and Ireland 2023 Nominee, BBC Music Introducing - Tips For 2023, Triple J Australia - Hottest 100, Daily Mirror - Tips for 2023 and Radio 1 Dance - Bass Track Of The Year.
Venbee dropped her track “Messy In Heaven” late in 2022, a collaboration with drum & bass producer Goddard, where she reimagined the son of god in a modern club predicament… In reality an allegory about that mate of yours who always puts others before themselves. Despite the cheeky blasphemous nature of the song, it reached #3 in the UK Singles chart.
