Have you ever heard of Storm Large? She got her musical start here in Portland and you might have seen her when she was a contestant on Rock Star Supernova. I just picked up her autobiography titled Crazy Enough, and I am blown away by how tough this chick is! Her mother was in and out of mental institutions most of her formative years and eventually died there. As one might expect this had a profoundly negative effect on Storm.
Her way of dealing with all this trauma was to start having sex at a very young age and do lots of drugs. I don't want to say I can relate for fear that my mother might be reading this so let's just say I wasn't surprised.
I love reading about women who turned their life around by kicking the crap out of it. She is a shining example of overcoming inner demons.
No pity parties here, just perseverance!
She's even preformed with the Pink Martini's.
She's also also has a one woman off Broadway show.
I love having strong women in my life I can look up too.
Portland loves her too!
and so will you after you watch this!
"Crazy Enough is about an artist's journey of realizing the mistakes that make, break and remake us are worth far more than our flailing attempts to live a life we think is normal."
