Singer / Songwriter / visual artist
STORRY is a multifaceted wonderwoman who writes and produces her music, and is intrinsically involved in all aspects of her career from designing album covers to directing award-winning music videos. Her debut concept album 'CH III: The Come Up' was produced and released independently, and is currently nominated for the 2021 JUNO award for Best Adult Contemporary Album alongside Celine Dion and Alanis Morrissette.
Though rooted in R&B Soul, STORRY is at home in many genres from opera to reggae. Her single 'Another Man' was produced by reggae royalty Sly and Robbie, and also nominated for a 2020 JUNO award.
Her second release, 'INTERLUDE-19' is a conceptual EP of virtual collaborations in an array of emotions and genres, completed while in isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada with Lebanese and Greek parents, STORRY is a sex-positive, queer, feminist, left-brained artist who is pushing culture forward. Her art is raw and honest to the max. If it doesn’t touch you, it’ll hit you in the face.
1) FOR NO ONE - a song in celebration of Pride. This is one of ten music videos made in isolation for the record INTERLUDE-19.
3) Money Ain't Free - a song that outlines a little of STORRY's double life & history as an exotic dancer. (You can also read more about STORRY's 'story' in this Toronto Star Article titled 'From Opera Trainee, to sex worker, to Juno-nominated artist: STORRY's tale isn't ordinary')

CONCEPT BEHIND THE ALBUMS
INTERLUDE-19 RELEASED Sept 5 2020
INTERLUDE-19 was envisioned shortly after the pandemic shut the world down (which was on the very day I was set to fly to the JUNO awards). So I decided to create another project. I envisioned this time as being an interlude which by definition is a short span of time that separates two parts, and so all the songs on the record are short, between 45 seconds and 3 mins. It is also a visual album. All videos were made in isolation with just myself and the director. The titles of all the songs on the album make a sentence "DEATH, DON'T WAIT, FOR NO ONE, SO, LIVE, A STORRY, WORTH, TELLING"
CH III: The Come Up RELEASED Feb 20, 2020
CH III: The Come Up is about a woman trying to leave the sex-industry which she was coerced into, and get into the music industry, only to realize that both are equally misogynistic and problematic. That woman is me. The record was released not even 30 days before the pandemic hit and so is relatively still new to the majority of the world. This album that I wrote, produced, funded, and promoted completely on my own is now nominated for a 2021 Juno award.
