I have been Following Storm (@stormcalysta) on Instagram for a few years now and have always been a big fan of her eclectic 70s style. Her feed is filled with the most inspiring almost dream-like photos. I also knew she was a musician, but I didn't realize how incredibly talented she was until visiting her website and seeing her Fleetwood Mac cover. (be sure to check the Dazey edition below!!)
When she reached out saying she was going to be visiting LA from Austin I knew I had to feature her as a Dazey Lady! We met up in my little Hollywood apartment and snapped some pretty magical photos. Having her styling help was key. Girls with mad style and talent just slay me!!!
Check out the amazing live show I got to see in my living room featuring Storm covering "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac. I also secretly filmed the performance on Instagram Live and people were loosing it!! One person even said, "Felt like I was just transported into the 70s, she is a young Stevie Nicks".
We have some fun Q & A's as well as the shoot all below!! Storm is currently working on some super top secret stuff, but for now you can visit her site (www.stormcalysta.com) and catch a few more epic covers.
How long have you been playing music? Would love to hear about your journey as an artist.
I've been creating music since I was about eight years old. It's always been a natural instinct to me, but it also has been a long journey to be able to create what I feel truly represents me.
Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations?
I'm inspired by outer space, nature, as well as element of the past.
You also model, blog, and style. Tell us about how you got into that and how it ties into your music career.
I'm an artist in many ways, I paint & draw as well. Staying creative is what makes me happy, it's what I love, regardless of what medium or platform I'm using.
You have a very solid 70’s aesthetic! What inspires your amazing style?
I enjoying grabbing inspiration from vinyl album art, film photographs from the 60's & 70's, I'm also heavily inspired by glam rock fashion.
What is your five year plan in a perfect world?
I try not to box my self in with specific plans. I know I'll be creating art of some form for as long as I exist on this planet, but I prefer to let the universe to run its course & I just take the risks it throws at me.
