Episode 10 of The Art of Asking Everything: Storm Large: Know Who You Are Not is out now wherever you get your podcasts.
If you want a mainline injection of self-love, balls-out hilarity and basic life inspiration, look no further. Singer/writer Storm Large is one of the most unapologetic and liberated human beings I have ever had the pleasure of talking to. She is forceful but full of compassion and heart, she’s opinionated, loud and indomitable, and she knows how to wield the magic tools of art and stage performance to chase away demons. She’s a hero to me. This is also possibly the absolute FUNNIEST conversation I’ve ever had. Really. Pee first!

Amanda Palmer presents an intimate conversation with Storm Large, recorded June 11, 2019 in Portland, OR.
Born in Southborough, MA, Storm graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York before moving to San Francisco and later to Portland, which she now calls home. Storm is the co-lead vocalist for the band Pink Martini along with China Forbes. Her band, Storm and the Balls, has toured the world, playing mash-up covers of rock hits of the ’70s and ’80s.
In 2006, she appeared as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova
Her musical one-woman show, Crazy Enough, premiered to rave reviews in 2009 and spawned her autobiography of the same name in 2012.
In 2014, her band, Le Bonheur, released a self-titled album of classics from the American Songbook.
In this episode Storm and I discuss growing up in Massachusetts, the isolating horrors of writing a book, our shared obsession with Madonna, imposter syndrome, and parallel parking as a feminist statement.
