Premium Blend is a fun collection of various songs from a few live performances as well as some previously unreleased songs and demos.

Venturella got his start in cafes and coffeehouses, so the album title and cover artwork lends itself to Venturella’s beginnings. The Madison, WI-based singer/songwriter has graduated to performing primarily on college campuses, which is where most of the live performances on Premium Blend were recorded.

“I’ve never put out a live album before, and I just thought this would be a fun project to release for the fans who enjoy what I do. When I’m recording my studio albums I’m in a controlled environment and get to play a bunch of instruments, but live it’s just me and my guitar and I’m in the moment allowing the songs, my experience and the crowd’s experience to be unique at that given point in time—that’s what keeps me coming back as a live performer, and hopefully keeps fans coming out to shows,” said Venturella.
