American renaissance woman and vocal superstar Storm Large presents her first major release with her new band Le Bonheur, available worldwide October 7 on Heinz Records. Le Bonheur (French for “The Happiness”) draws inspiration from a rich and varied musical tradition; Storm shares her vision of a genre-free world, collecting songs born of French theatrical chanson, jazz standard, heavy metal, smokehouse lounge, and a handful of originals, and stitching them all together into her own singular sonic tapestry to create an unrestrained and impassioned exploration of love, desire, and truth.

Dog Days. Because it’s late Summer, and in some towns, it feels like you are inside a dog’s panting, stinky mouth.
However, these sticky sweaty nights are giving way to a sweet hint of the coming Fall. Cool and crisp like a fresh fuji apple.
That’s what I’m talkin about.
So much cool is coming this Fall!
Firstly: New album!
LE BONHEUR will be out Oct 8, but Portland gets to take it home ONE MONTH EARLY.
Available only at the Alberta Rose Theater September 8, (the show is sold out).
First up NW! (Yeeeaaah!):
Next, TEXAS! (Whuuuut?):
We are going to be all over the east and west coast in Oct+Nov, so stay tuned for more updates!
Enjoy the last sweaty days of Summer, we’ll see you when the nights are cooler and long…..
See you out there,
Le Bonheur: N. The happiness, pleasure.
We are ready to unleash upon the world, a big, beautiful chunk of us. Le Bonheur, the first album from my band of the same name. Not only is “Le Bonheur” French, it is a double entendre WHICH IS ALSO FRENCH.
Dude, what is French for meta? SUCER!
The album has 13 tracks, some of my favorite songs of love and longing, performed with some of my favorite people. Of course My Boners, Holcombe Waller, Puddles Pity Party and the Von Trapps….plus a ton of orchestral players.
The album is slated to be released October 7, but my beloved Portland gets a taste one month before anybody else.
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 at the Alberta Rose Theater

Keep your eyes on Facebook and Twitter, sign your friends up at stormlarge.com, so they know when I’m in or near their town.
…..it is also widely known, that unlike the U.S, …..The French (and most of Europe) are fairly blase’ about nudity, parce qu’ils sont cool comme ca, yo.
I suppose eating buttery things that often would make anybody easy going.
See you out there!
