Storm Large is an artist that scoffs at boundaries. She’s tried her hand (and excelled) as an actress, an author, a playwright, and of course, a vocalist. Known to many for her time singing with acclaimed lounge pop act Pink Martini, Large will be bringing her own band along with her dynamite musicality, charismatic stage presence and force of nature personality to Rockport for the first time.
Large first shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS reality singing competition show Rock Star: Supernova. Before becoming a television sensation, she had spent the 90’s singing in clubs throughout San Francisco, and later in Portland, Oregon where she developed a cult-like following.
After her success on Rock Star: Supernova she took a career departure into theater, starring in Portland Center Stage’s production of Cabaret. She then wrote and starred in the autobiographical one woman show, Crazy Enough, which played to packed houses during its unprecedented 21-week sold out run in Portland. A few years later, she released her memoir, also called Crazy Enough. It was released by Simon and Schuster and was named Oprah’s Book of the Week, as well as being awarded the 2013 Oregon Book Award for Creative Nonfiction.
Storm made her debut as guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April of 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.
After forming her own band, which she dubbed Le Bonheur, Large recorded a well-received record in 2014 featuring interpretations of the American Songbook called Le Bonheur.
