When we travelled the USA last year we stopped in Austin, Texas where so shot with Storm Calysta. Storm is very talented musician and model who we have followed for a while now and love seeing her amazing content. We caught up with Storm to ask her a few questions…
For those new to your music how would you describe your sound?
Far-out, melodic, pop music of the future that is dripping in elements of nostalgia.
What were your musical beginnings?
I was involved in choir since a very early age. I have always been obsessed with singing & began writing my own music at the age of 8. Soon after, I began taking french horn & violin lessons, then I taught myself guitar
If you could spend an hour with any musician alive or dead who would it be?
David Bowie, I would’ve loved to pick his beautiful brain.
What music did you listen to growing up?
Primarily rock n’ roll & soul – that’s what my parents listened to.
What is a song you wish you’d written?
Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues
What has been your all-time favourite gig?
Woodstock in 1969 was quite spectacular.
Who or what inspires you?
I’m inspired by the beauty & struggles we experience in our lives. I create the art & music that comes to my brain naturally.
You also model for a lot of incredible brands, how important is fashion to you?
Fashion is an outlet for me to express my inner-thoughts visually, where as my music is my most inner-thoughts expressed audibly.
How would you describe your style?
It’s very eclectic. My fashion style is inspired by space, western wear, the 60s, 70s & really whatever I’m instinctively drawn to.
Do you have one piece of clothing that’s more special than the others and what’s the story behind it?
I have a few pieces that I received from Janis Joplin’s family as a gift, I keep those very close to me.
We know you’re an avid thrifter, do you have any tips for our followers on finding those unique gems?
I always seek for luxury fabrics & interesting patterns, then I analyze the cut & style of the piece.
