Okay, here's the story. Venesa Talor was born and raised on a farm in Barre, Vermont where she was brought up with herds of cows and flocks of Geese. Although she grew up in a small town, Venesa always had the performance craze going on. “I had classical piano training by my Grandfather, Hrant Gregory Minnassian for nine years as a child and realized that I had a gift to play and write music by ear. Although reading music wasn't my thing, I learned to do it anyway”.
At the ripe age of 18, Vanessa took leave from her small town Barre. “It seemed like there was no light at the end of the tunnel unless I wanted to settle down and be a normal gal. Being 1st runner-up as Miss Vermont was about as far as I could go there, but I still had a lot of creative oats to sew. I was in a local Rock band called ”Outrage”, but I longed to be a Model and had that “California Dream”of making it in Hollywood. Venesa set forth and journeyed west for a month straight, (on foot) and wound up in Anaheim working at Disneyland. “Unfortunately my music was put on hold for a few years while I pursued acting and modeling in L.A. I eventually got some exposure when I posed for the cover of the 96’ College Girls Edition of Playboy. I also did some layouts for their Newsstand Specials. Venesa was also a Budweiser girl and posed for a many car magazines.
“Then I got some acting gigs, my first movie I was the lead female alien from another planet in “Femalien”. It actually did pretty well and they cast me again as the lead in the sequel Femalien 2. Among many other starring roles, in “Citizens of Perpetual Indulgence” she was cast to portray the Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor. Playing beautiful starlets seemed to be a natural for Venesa as she was then cast to portray Ava Gardner in the E! True Hollywood Story of Ava Gardner. Venesa’s next film “Bloodolls”, was attached to a music record deal and she had hopes of getting some of her music in the film. ”That’s when I got inspired to write music again. I got a Trinity workstation and took lessons in engineering, so that I could write my own music. As I learned how to engineer sound on this level, a whole arena of music came pouring out of me. It was amazing. It was as if the last 6 years of all my life’s experiences were released all at once.
The songs I wrote didn’t get into the “Bloodolls” soundtrack, but instead, I it turned into my own Rock Musical called “A Naked Girl”. It’s the story of a girl looking for her big break in Hollywood, but winds up in the mire of Hollywood Hell. The music in “A Naked Girl” was like “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” meets “The Wizard Oz”. The show premiered in Los Angeles at the Historic “El Rey Theatre” for a 7 week run. I had my own set built with an 8 piece live band interpreting my music. It got great reviews, but a lot of critic’s felt it wasn’t “mainstream” enough. That’s okay because I’m not a mainstream kind of gal”. Venesa then released her first self titled 15 song CD “Venesa Talor”. She then followed that up with her second CD, “In the Court of Mistress V”. Now the newest and latest...."The Naked Resurrection".
