Storm Large has been making a name for herself from tours with Pink Martini to Carnegie Hall, but it is with her loyal and fearless band, Le Bonheur, that she shines with a fierce emotional commitment to every song. A vivacious stage presence, Storm mesmerizes with a compelling mix of smoldering seduction and edgy humor. Every live performance showcases her powerhouse vocals on a blend of American songbook classics, Broadway tear-jerkers, rock goddess anthems and original compositions.
Storm spent the 90s singing in clubs throughout San Francisco. Tired of the club scene, she moved to Portland to pursue a new career as a chef, but a last minute cancellation in 2002 at the Portland club “Dante’s” turned into a standing Wednesday night engagement for Storm and her new band. It wasn’t long before Storm had a cult-like following in Portland, and a renewed singing career that was about to be launched onto the international stage.
Storm shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova, where despite having been eliminated in the week before the finale, she built a fan base that follows her around the world to this day. Storm made her debut as guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. She continues to perform with the band, touring nationally and internationally, and she was featured on their CD, Get Happy. Storm has also sung with Grammy winner k.d. lang, pianist Kirill Gerstein, punk rocker John Doe, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton.
The vocalist returns to the Webb Center on January 15 at 7:30 pm. Tickets to the performance start at $30. Reserve your seats today by calling the Box Office at (928) 684-6624. For more information or video previews, click here.
