Sinking in deep with an unforgettably addictive sting, Stormy Strong's (real name) unique brand of "alternative saltwater rock" casts razor sharp hooks to the hungry masses. Stormy's honest bitter lyrics, raw emotion and anthemic melodies splice seamlessly with award winning song-writing that is fast approaching gale-force intensity.
Stormy's brand new EP "Take Her Down," recently recorded with music industry icons Lyle Workman (Frank Black, Sting, Todd Rundgren, Beck), Sean Beavan (Black Veil Brides, Guns N' Roses, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails), Tim Narducci (Systematic, Spiral Arms) and Chris Manning (Jellyfish), is already making waves across the internet.
The album's single "Jumpstart The Heart" was chosen as #1 in "Rick's Picks 2012" on Chicago's renowned "The Best Radio YouHave Never Heard" podcast, which also included songs from Smashing Pumpkins, Regina Spektor, Arcade Fire and Rage Against The Machine. Plus Stormy's unique cover of The Pixies, “Where is My Mind?” has been popular on iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Mog and iHeart Radio.
