Interview with Stormi Weather

Our individualality make us all unique and it’s important not to lose the inner child we all have inside of us

Today we had an honor to interview an artist that goes by the name “Stormi Weather”. Stormi is a versatile and talented musician who also does some pretty good singing impressions. So please check out her music, you won’t regret it, trust us!

 

Lisa:

Hi Stormi! What first got you into music?  What did you wanted to become when you were a child?

Stormi:

My parents got me into music at a young age. I grew up listening to all genres of music with them. My mom influenced my love for 80′-90’s music, Irish music, and Techno. My dad was heavy into Classic Rock, Country, and other artists like the Red Hot Chili Peppers. To this day RHCP is my favorite band. Being in and out of choir in school, I knew at a young age I wanted to be a musician. I was constantly singing any and everything I could. 

 

Lisa:

How do you describe your music to people?

Stormi:

I guess you could say my music is indie pop or indie, but it’s hard for me to pinpoint an exact genre. My music taste is really broad. A lot of people say that I have a “haunting” or enchanting sound similar to Evanesence. Being a soprano, I love high melodic Minor tones, but I exercise lots of vocal styles and ranges. I like to involve storm elements in my music and instrumentals as much as I can, because I’ve always been fascinated with nature.

Lisa:

What is your creative process like?

Stormi:

My creative process changes, because it is whatever I feel in that moment. I make all of my own music independently, so it just depends on if I feel like singing, writing, editing, or shooting a video that day. When I write songs, I tend to start with a melody that builds into lyrics. Then I build a beat around that. Then again, sometimes it’s the opposite. At times I build beats with no songs in mind, but I also constantly have lyrics in my head. It’s a never ending process I get lost in.

Lisa:

You do some pretty good singing impressions, but still have a
really unique voice. What are your biggest influences and why?

Stormi:

My biggest influences right now are Billie Eilish, Oliver Tree, Prof, Mac Miller, Melanie Martinez, and Krizz Kaliko, but there’s so many more artists I can’t list them all. I find inspiration in all music honestly. I really love Billie’s voice, lyricism, and instrumental style. It inspires me that Billie and Finneas make their own music in their home like I do, and are so successful. I really admire how Oliver has such real messages in his songs. Prof is pure entertainment and fun, but with the oldschool Rap style that I love. Mac Miller makes any day better. Melanie has the theatrical visuals to capture her songs, and Krizz Kaliko has a unique voice that I love to sing along with. I love paying attention to my favorite artists and learning from them, but I think individuality is important for self development.

Lisa:

I really liked the song “silent torture”. Can you tell me more about
it? What is it about, and how did you get inspired to write it?

Stormi:

Thank you! My song “silent torture” is about how the silence can be tortuous, almost like a loneliness. Like I need the distractions to keep me out of my thoughts. The song just came to me one night. I heard the lyrics and melody in my head while I was cooking, so I sat down to start building the music, and when I came up with the vocal effect, it just bloomed from there. I was up until 5 am the next morning and the song was finished. A lot of the times, my favorite songs happen all at once. It doesn’t matter how long it takes from start to finish. I can get obsessive with it.

Lisa:

What is one message you would give to your fans?

Stormi:

One message I’d give to my fans is that anything is possible. I strongly believe that what you think about you manifest to yourself weather it be good or bad, so it’s important to focus on the positive things you want in life and to believe in yourself.

Lisa:

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music
career?

Stormi:

If it wasn’t for my music career I’d probably be doing something in makeup. I have a strong desire to learn the art of special effects makeup for horror movies, which I intend to start progressing into in the near future as well, for my own videos. I’ve always been interested in art of all kinds.

Lisa:

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

Stormi:

I feel like the internet has definitely helped independent artists such as myself because it gives us the opportunity to promote ourselves without giving up our creative control to a record label. I also appreciate the internet because I am able to share my music worldwide. It’s dope that I can collaborate with someone on the other side of the world, and before we had internet that wouldn’t have been possible. I am fully independent and I intend on staying that way, so the internet will definitely help along my journey.

Lisa:

Which famous musicians do you admire, and would like to work
with?

Stormi:

I really admire Prof at the moment specifically. I have listened to his music with my husband since his King Gampo album was released. He has such an individual style and entertaining side to his music that I really admire. Another artist I am really inspired by recently is Oliver Tree. He really knows what he is doing with marketing, and his music is on another level. I’d love to work with either of them.

Lisa:

Are you planning to collaborate with any other artist?

Stormi:

I plan on collaborations with my husband Riddance this year. He has been my partner in music for 10 years now and we have big things coming. I honestly would love to collaborate with Tenacious D or Adam Sandler (lol), but I am always open to collaborate with anyone if the vibe is right.

Lisa:

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Stormi:

The best advice I’ve been given is just to be true to myself. Our individualality make us all unique and it’s important not to lose the inner child we all have inside of us.

Lisa:

What’s next for Stormi Weather?

Stormi:

As far as what’s next for me, the answer to your question is what won’t I do? I have so many things to come in so many directions that you’ll have to try to keep up with me. For now my goal is to individualize, and to make my mark on the world. I’m so excited to share with you all what 10 years of self taught business can lead into. Stay tuned…
