The Renaissance

Venzella Joy

From the city of Buffalo, to traveling the world on tour, independent artist and touring musician, Venzella Joy has been playing drums since the age of 10. Beginning in the church, she later learned the fundamentals of music theory from elementary school through college, where she obtained her B.A. in Criminal Justice and a minor in Music.
From the stage to the television, magazine stands to the radio, Venzella Joy is crossing all mediums. In March of 2009, Joy was featured on MTV’s reality show competition, Making His Band, with Sean “Diddy” Combs where she worked alongside Combs and other industry veterans. 2009 proved to be bittersweet as she lost her mother, Vet Howard, that year. Vet was very supportive of Joy’s career choice, and loved hearing
Joy practice for hours. Venzella Joy referenced her mother' words, "I see your dreams coming true," in her first single, "Live" released in 2014.
Those dreams finally came true in February of 2014 when she became the drummer for Mrs. Beyonce’ Carter, and joined the all-female band for the “Mrs. Carter World Tour”. Shortly after returning from the tour, Joy hit the road again on the “Mr. and Mrs. Carter: On The Run Tour”.
Venzella Joy released her first solo EP, "Orange Moon: The Unwritten Phase" in the spring of 2015, giving the world a glimpse into her musicality. Venzella Joy elicited the help of a few musician friends, including keyboardist/producer Micki Miller and guitarist Bibi McGill, a fellow member of Beyonce Carter's tour band.
Her newest release, "Moonlight", provides catchy lyrics against a
smooth groove. The listener can't help but dance and "get lost in
the moonlight". Available for download on iTunes, Apple Music,
Tidal, and Bandcamp.
Venzella Joy endorses Zildjian Cymbals, Cympad, Vater Percus-
sion, KickPort International KickPort, DW Drums, and Tunerfish
Luglocks. Venzella Joy is currently the drummer for Mrs. Beyonce
Carter on tour for the "Beyoncé: Formation World Tour".
