As far as I'm concerned Storm Large deserves every ounce of success she's achieved. Storm has been a Portland institution for many years. She's put in countless hours supporting almost every major fund raising event, appeared on almost every major stage and literally worked her ass off. The nation got a peek at her talent when she appeared on Rockstar Supernova a couple of years ago, but like many of those 'reality tv/music contest' shows they overlooked true talent. It's only fitting that Storm find her second wind of notoriety and success here in Portland.
Storm's auto-biographical show "Crazy Enough" has been a run away hit at Portland Center Stage, selling out and getting extended month after month after month. They finally announced that it would have to end at some point because PCS needs the stage for their other shows (another venue has even been discussed for a continue of the run).
Now the music video for 8 Miles Wide has been released and it's a thrill. The video was shot and edited by local Portland filmmaker James Westby (director of Film Geek and The Auteur) and produced by Katie O' Grady.
Check out the 8 Miles Wide music video from Crazy Enough:
Here also is a great behind the scenes video:
In addition to her smash hit play and new video Storm also did the soundtrack for the upcoming Pander Brothers movie called Selfless which is getting a screening and its own panel later this week at ComicCon.
