Storm Large is a musician, actor, playwright, and author who shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova. She has built a fan base that follows her around the world. In late 2014, Large and her band, Le Bonheur, released a record designed to capture their sublime and subversive interpretations of the American Songbook. Entitled simply, Le Bonheur, the recording is a collection of tortured and titillating love songs; beautiful, familiar, yet unique, much like the lady herself. Large also debuts with The New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, The Cincinnati Symphony, The Houston Symphony, and The RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin amongst others. She is busy creating a new musical with The Public Theater in New York City. Large made her debut as guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. She continues to perform with the band, touring nationally and internationally, and was featured on their CD, Get Happy. Large also has sung with Grammy winner k.d. lang, pianist Kirill Gerstein, punk rocker John Doe, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton.
