How do you overcome challenges and recover from setbacks ?
Life be throwing challenges at me all the time you just have to be strong enough to handle what life throws at you to make you stronger. In order to overcome challenges or recover from a setback you have to go through your storm and feel your pain cause if not you are just pushing it under the carpet to get hit with more built up pain you got going on then you just walking around with a dark cloud . Always feel your pain and distract yourself with things you love even if you wanna just lay in bed and cry you can do that the first night and just feel all your emotions but the day after keep your mind busy and do what you love and if you have to start over don’t think you starting a whole new book you just starting a new chapter for better blessings there always a storm first then the sun .. never stop
If you wasn't in the music business or industry, what do you think you would be doing with your life instead?
Honestly if I didn’t do music or modeling or photography I would be a teacher by how much I love kids but photography and videography is something I always loved doing I hope to make a horror film one day written and directed by me.
Do you prefer the Independent route or would you rather sign to a major record label, and why?
I honestly love the independent route as of right now for future wise I would love to work with a major label but I just wanna know what I would get out of it before I sign into that but I prefer to be independent as of right now i can’t lie. It going good.
Who's your ideal musician to collaborate with and why?
My ideal musicians are not alive right now but to work with some amazing artist it would have to be kay flock I worked with him since his first show I took his photos and dougie b but everytime they play a song or just by walking in the room everybody loves them , i love their energy and their passionate with what they do and I definitely can see a collab with me and him one day he too tough ain’t nobody can deny that one
Are you able to make a living with your music? If so, how were you able to attain a career doing what you love? If not, what do you do in order to fund your music career? What advice would give to someone who's interested in pursuing a career in music?
When I first started I had to put my own money and everything like that for this but as of right now things are going good once they see you being consistent they’re gonna wanna take your pictures , shoot your video , want you to perform depending how consistent you are but I can say I can make a living with this but I did start doing 9-5s at first and I was doing photography and videography on the side I was working 6 days a week even 7 sometimes , I remember barely sleeping I be falling asleep at the stu then go to work in the am but at the time it felt like it wasn’t worth it but now I thank god I kept going cause I never would’ve thought I be getting the love I get now. in order to make it somewhere you have to push yourself far even if you feel like giving up once you get to the spot you in you will know it be all worth it if you can dream it you can make it always Remember that it worth doing it only if you have the dedication for it .
What is the story behind your band name/stage name?
My hair I always had blonde hair or like my famous blonde and black and I remember someone like you got that storm hair then it just kinda stuck with me then everybody starting calling me stormi or storm . Every time people see me they be like stormi babyyy and it was catchy as hell so that where the name came.
