In 2016, Venus opened for Grammy winner Gregory Porter at The Chautauqua Amphitheater in Boulder.

Most recently, Venus played the part of freedom fighter “Lola Devine” in the futuristic multimedia project, “The Five Pointers” created by renowned artist Thomas “Detour” Evans for Red Bull Music. Venus has won several Westword Magazine music awards, and for the last 12 years has been host of the popular radio show “Jazz Odyssey” on 89.3 KUVO, and regularly interviews music luminaries such as Taylor McFerrin, Derrick Hodge, Dave King (The Bad Plus), Dennis Ham (Thundercat) and many others.
