Storm’s mission is to make people happy. She fiercely leads by example, accessibility and by not taking herself too seriously. But make no mistake. Storm takes her work very seriously.

The 2014 Artist of the Year award goes to Storm Large. Storm moved to Portland in 2002 and her popularity has grown with each of her musical adventures including being a contestant on “Rock Star” and in recent years becoming the co-lead singer of Pink Martini. In 2014 Storm was busy touring the country both solo and with Pink Martini. She was on Pink Martini’s “Dream A Little Dream” album, which was released in March and also released her latest solo album “Le Bonheur” which came out in October.
When you are born to be a performer, it’s not surprising, that during the course of the recent Oregon Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony, many of us called Storm “Entertainer of the year”, though she is without a doubt, an Artist. It’s a complete thrill ride to be near her and the energy she exudes. Catch some of that thrill, right here with the video/interview.
Video production thanks to the skills of our own Robert Parish (award-winning film maker and videographer). He took out time for shenanigans, as is his wont.
