"I am Stormie Leigh. Yes, it is on my birth certificate. I was born and raised in Shelby, AL. At the age of 16, I chased love. After 6 years it broke 2 of my ribs. I was in college. It was after that experience that I realized that life is short and I wasn't happy. Love is a complicated word, but do what you love and you never work a day in your life right? Since I could remember, in my mind, I wanted to make music. So I took a chance. At the time I was a double major in Accounting and Financial Investments. I didn't want to drop out of college at all, but I didn't want to change my major completely either. So I dropped Financial Investments. I now have a Bachelors in Accounting with all my electives in music.
I released my first EP, Instrumentality, in 2015. In 2016 I went on the road independently and performed at venues around the country trying to learn as much as I could in the process. In 2017, the guy who broke my ribs died. He was hit by a car while riding a bicycle at night. The only thing in his pockets was a picture of me with my name on the back. It had been 5 years since I cut off contact completely. This is why I say love is a complicated word. He hurt me in so many ways, but the door wasn't closed properly and knowing he was gone forever made me realize how much I really did love him. I went into a very dark place for a year and a half. However, going into 2019 I felt different and released my latest album, Into The Storm. Now I am continuing to do what I love as I find my peace. My music is my story. I hope I can help."
