Santa Cruz, California’s favorite “saltwater” rock leviathan Stormy Strong has partnered with Stage Right Secrets for the premiere of his new music video, “Sail Away.” WATCH: “Sail Away” on STAGE RIGHT SECRETS
“”Sail Away” explores the themes of neglect and moving on, represented by the visual metaphor of an old fishing boat,” explains Stormy. “In the narrative, I struggle with images of my recent break-up as I prepare for a solo journey out to sea. With a naturalistic style and memorable imagery, “Sail Away” can be appreciated on many levels.”
To commemorate the premiere, Stormy will be taking over Stage Right Secrets’ Twitter from 11am-7pm PST, offering fans a behind the scenes look at the making of the video through photos, secret facts, and more. You can follow @StageRightS and the hashtag #SailAway to submit your questions.
Stormy has been making waves in the alternative scene since 2006, sweeping the globe atop a tsunami of salty melodic anthems. The nautical themed project formed as a mixture of two of his strongest passions: music and the seas. The son of a commercial fisherman, Stormy’s fascination with the sea started from a young age, eventually fusing with his love of music to create honest lyrics soaked in raw emotion that splice seamlessly with award winning song-writing. His songs will leave you cast adrift, melodies swimming around inside of your head long after the show is over.
Stormy is the recipient of the 2008 Billboard World Songwriting Contest award for his track “Save You,” and has worked with a slew of heavy-hitters including legendary guitarist and film scorer Lyle Workman (Sting, Frank Black, Beck), Davey Faragher (Cracker, Elvis Costello), David Bianco (Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac), and Sean Beavan (NIN, Marilyn Manson).
