Santa Cruz, CA based alternative “saltwater” rock leviathan Stormy Strong formed in 2006 and has been sweeping the globe atop a tsunami of salty melodic anthems. Unrelenting rock hooks sink unforgettably deep with Stormy Strong’s new singles “Holiday” and “Lye” with a continual release of bi-monthly singles scheduled for the rest of 2015. Stormy is the son of a California commercial fisherman and the inspiration of his own near death experiences at sea provide for honest lyrics soaked in raw emotion that splice seamlessly with award winning song-writing. His songs will leave you cast adrift, melodies swimming around inside of your head long after the show is over.
Stormy’s new singles have already been featured in the “What Rocks” section on the front of the iTunes Music Store and his cover of the Pixies “Where Is My Mind?” continues to net fans around the world while currently receiving major U.S. terrestrial radio airplay. Stormy has worked with #1 hit record producer Chris “Von Pimpenstein” Carter (Bec & Sebastian, Mr. Rally, Christabelle) industry icon Lyle Workman (Frank Black, Sting, Todd Rundgren, Beck), Sean Beavan (Black Veil Brides, Guns N’ Roses, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails), Tim Narducci (Systematic, Spiral Arms) and Chris Manning (Jellyfish). With non-stop new content flooding the internet, Stormy Strong is quickly reaching gale force intensity.
