Razor sharp hooks, honest bitter lyrics and raw emotion sink in with an unforgettably addictive sting. Casting cutting melodies to the hungry masses, the strength of Stormy Strong’s songwriting is fast approaching gale-force intensity. Listening to Stormy conjures images of his life and near-death experiences at sea --a lonely fisherman cast adrift and anchorless against the capricious squalls which inspired his name, battling the merciless riptide of “sink or swim”. Stormy’s songs weave a compelling narrative of stark introspection which commandeers the mind’s eye long after the music ends. More than just another singer-songwriter, Stormy Strong is a storyteller --with a story to tell that's uniquely his own.
Stormy's single "Jumpstart The Heart" on his brand new EP "Take Her Down" was chosen as #1 in "Rick's Picks 2012" on Chicago's renowned "The Best Radio You Have Never Heard" podcast, which also included songs from Smashing Pumpkins, Regina Spektor, Arcade Fire and Rage Against The Machine: http://bestradioyouhaveneverheard.com/
Stormy's unique cover of The Pixies, “Where is My Mind?” has been popular on iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Mog, and iHeart Radio. His new record was recently recorded with music industry icons Lyle Workman (Frank Black, Todd Rundgren, Beck), Sean Beavan (Guns N' Roses, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails), Tim Narducci (Systematic) and Chris Manning (Jellyfish). Since 1996, Stormy Strong’s brand of “alternative saltwater rock” sinks in with razor sharp hooks, honest bitter lyrics and raw emotion, biting with an unforgettably addictive sting.
