From the heart of Texas emerges The Venerable, a pop-rock project that shatters genre constraints with their highly-anticipated single, “Show Me Your Beautiful.” Hailing from Houston, this collaborative endeavour showcases a dynamic, genre-defying sound that weaves together influences ranging from Led Zeppelin and Billy Joel to Counting Crows and The Goo Goo Dolls.
At the core of The Venerable lies a commitment to collaboration. It’s not just a band; it’s a songwriting project that features an array of talented musicians on each track tied together by the band’s leader and frontman Matt Barrett. This inclusive approach to music creation fosters a rich diversity of sounds and voices, creating a sonic tapestry that defies stereotypes.
“Show Me Your Beautiful” serves as a musical whirlwind, a journey through The Venerable’s pop-rock sensibilities that consistently break free from the shackles of genre expectations. The track is a testament to the project’s ability to craft songs that are meaningful, relatable, and nostalgic, drawing inspiration from a wide range of musical influences.
The band sheds light on the essence of the track, stating, “The song is really at the core about coming out of your comfort zone and showing the world what you have to offer. It’s a song about overcoming fear and showing what beautiful things you have to offer the world.” With this lyrical theme, The Venerable encourages listeners to embrace courage, step beyond their comfort zones, and showcase their unique gifts to the world.
Following the success of their first two singles, “You’re So Original ft. Libra” and “A Place 4 Me ft. HXRT,” released in late summer 2023, “Show Me Your Beautiful” acts as a captivating prelude to their upcoming 2024 debut album. The Venerable aims to capitalize on the positive reception garnered by their previous releases, steering their brand of pop-rock towards mainstream recognition.
