Ventresca Releases 'Craving'
Fri Oct 11, 2019

At only 17 years old and with a future as bright as the California sun, Canadian pop singer Ventresca is poised and ready to take make her mark. The Toronto, Ontario born songstress has been involved in the arts for most of her young life. She started off as a dancer at the age of 5, performing and dancing at the prestigious school of Canadian Dance Unit, earning herself experience and an array of awards. There was always music around the house and listening to her brother and watching the talented Miley Cyrus on TV during her Hannah Montana run, was a big influence on young Ventresca.

“I guess that’s when I got the music bug. I watched that and thought I would love to do be a singer and performer.” This led to the enrollment in the world famous Royal Conservatory of Music in her hometown of Toronto for vocal lessons. Next came songwriting which is an integral part of the Ventresca package.
