Interview with Ventures

Today, we sat down with Richard Taylor from Ventures to discuss inspiration to write music, music listened to growing up, and much more! Be sure to check out the music of Ventures below on Spotify after the interview!


What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your


There is just something about playing music that makes me calm, sometimes I can just be sitting here doing nothing and an idea will come to mind and I just have to noodle till I have something to write or play. It’s more of a curse I love

What type of music did you listen to growing up?

Growing up I was terrified of metal and the like haha specify Slipknot

So Hip Hop and R&B for me growing up everyone seemed so shocked when I say my favorite artist is Usher

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?

Corny but it will have to be my mother, she raised me all on her own in an area where people were being dragged up. I could have turned out very differently but thanks to my hero I’m nerdy little me

If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?

I would like to think something still to do with media as I’ve got my fingers in all kinds of pies within the media world but I also have a feeling that it would just be IT repairs

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create


Go and do it! We are in a place now where you can get a Mod synth and spend the week making awful noises but I promise by the end of that week whether you made a lovely sound or a horrible one you’d have a melody and the starts of a song


I wish I picked up the guitar sooner rather than thinking I was the next Eminem.
