Who Am I ?
An Introduction to STORM LEE
1: Who am I?
My name is Storm and I am an earthling most of the time…
2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I am an artist (& writer, singer, provocateur and alchemist). I used to be more hyphenated but now I think “artist” covers it. I am re-releasing my first record SOULFILLAPOPKILLA on iTunes, March 11, 2011… synth pop rock tracks, produced by Madonna/Seal maestro Marcus Brown.
It is my first baby. It is an 80′s kind-of-thing… and a ear candy kind of thing.
3: Where are you from and where are you going?
I live in Los Angeles, grew up in New York City and was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. And where am I going? I let you know when I get there;)
4: Who is your biggest hero?
My biggest hero is anyone who is brave enough to stand up and be different. To march to the beat of their own drum and not let others determine their happiness or artistic expression. A hero to me is a person or thing that empowers me to be better, stronger and more honest. Go into any museum or gallery any hospital or shelter church or school and you’ll experience my hero. The desire to be of use and value.
Anything or anyone who inspires YOU is MY hero.
5: What book is your bible?
Any word that enriches my quest for the divine is my bible. So as far as books go I keep The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz, The Gospel of Saint Thomas and Love poems of May Swenson in my bag at all times.. Those books changed my perspective and my way of life… I don’t leave home without them. Authors I like are Alexandre Dumas, Irvine Welsh, Christopher Moore, May Swenson, Oscar Wilde, Jackie Collins all rock my world.
6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
I love happiness, gelato, fearless rebels, planning, my job, my friends and my odyssey. I hate depressing whiny victimy lazy people who don’t take responsibility and blame everyone else for their grief. I also hate people who walk in a room complaining… Wait I don’t hate them, I hate that BIT about them.
7: What is your raison d’être?
To elevate, rise, enrich,empower, provoke, challenge, comfort, create, forgive and love.
8: What is your favorite color?
Turquoise with violet tendencies.
9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?
Gambit from X-men and Striperella.
10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?
Union square, a bottle of wine, and Marie Havens! Any time of year.
11: What turns you on?
Arrogance, confidence, wit and wisdom…Abs are over rated.
12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
Why are we all so afraid to be ourselves?
