A decade ago, Cincinnati native Tony Miracle headed off to college in Nashville and wound up with more than a degree. A high school multi-instrumentalist, he crossed paths with vocalist Annette Strean and together the duo began creating songs and performing them around the Nashville scene. Adding second multi-instrumentalist Kip Kubin, the trio blended chilly ’80s Synth Pop with soulfully traditional Pop and came up with a sound akin to an Americanized Sugarcubes with a less quirky Bjork at the helm.

They named themselves Venus Hum, a slight misspelling of a non-lethal heart condition — venous hum — that afflicts Miracle, causing him to hear the pumping of blood in his ears. Given the band’s mechanized humanity, it seemed a fitting name.

The trio’s Cincinnati appearance is not merely a live gig. Venus Hum will be filming their show at Ric Hordinski’s Monastery Studio for a DVD they hope to have available in the next few months.
