Storm Large

Storm Large

Cabaret's Baddest Girl

An epic orchestral rendition of Cole Porter’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” stark harmonies for an “Unchained Melody” and a barn-burning version of Lou Reed’s “Satellite of Love” are just some of the gems on Le Bonheur, the entrancing new album from Portland-based songstress Storm Large. Together with her band (also called Le Bonheur), the vocalist brings raw sophistication and a symphonic palette to a collage of American songbook, chanson française, glam rock and heavy metal. The album will be released on Pink Martini’s label Heinz Records on October 7, 2014.

Le Bonheur is:

James Beaton, piano
Scott Weddle, guitar
Greg Eklund, drums
Matt Brown, bass

Storm appeared on TEDx Portland to sing and explore “the crossroads” and the two sides to every artist.
