Live Music & Wine with Michael Venia

Singer-songwriter, Michael Venia, picked up the guitar in Saudi Arabia while growing up listening to Rick Dees Top 40 international radio hits with a special affinity for 90s grunge. In 2009, he formed groovy alternative rock project, Carbon City Lights, as a solo artist before getting a full band behind him on the central coast. His original music blends genres of folk, pop, and rock. January 2019 marks the release of his seventh studio album that rings with influences of bands like Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, and Coldplay. Listeners appreciate the authenticity that comes from Michael’s lyrics and shines through in his powerful vocals.
