Storm Large cartwheeled out of the gutter of her checkered past, across a thousand punk rock stages and into her infamously googled stint on a rock n roll reality series. From there she went on to tour the world, singing in 17 different languages, and behaving herself somewhat, with the joyful little pop orchestra, Pink Martini, ultimately leading to her success on the stage of Carnegie Hall singing Kurt Weill with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. She explains quite a bit of her wild life in her memoir, Crazy Enough, released 2012 through Simon and Schuster, which was Oprah's book of the week and won the 2013 Oregon Book Award for creative non-fiction. Her award winning one woman show, of the same name, broke every box office record at Portland Center Stage in 2010. In the Spring 2014, Storm performed at the Gilmore Festival with pianist Kirill Gerstein. In the summer 2014, she appeared at the Ojai Festival with The Knights and at the Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago. In the Fall of 2014, Storm will release Bonheur named after her band and released on Pink Martini’s label, Heinz Records. The recording will be a collection of tortured and titillating love songs; beautiful, familiar, yet subversive. Storm also makes her debut with The New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, The Cincinnati Symphony, The Houston Symphony and The RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin among others. Storm still tours with Pink Martini, and in all her free time is co-writing a new musical for The Public Theater in New York City.
