From Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies to New Orleans in the Bayou, Stormy Monroe has taken her love of music and dancing and the EDM community by storm (no pun intended).
Throughout her career, she’s won numerous awards such as the WNBA Inspiring Woman Award, the Atlanta Women Are Awards, Most Creative Music Project: MVP TV Network, and Bold Women of Buckhead Award.
Now residing in Atlanta, she has taken her craft of mixing pop elements with hip hop culture to new heights, blurring genre lines and creating a new normal.
She just released a new album titled Venom Kisses, which features the lead single, “Booted,” produced by DJ Speedy and The University.
We recently caught up with Stormy Monroe to learn what inspires her.
Please define your personal brand.
My personal brand is very inspiring. I want my brand to motivate people and show that no matter what obstacles you are facing, you can still achieve your dreams.
At what age did you realize that you had a gift?
In elementary school, my brother and I started dancing together and people would gather around and watch us perform.
How do you stay inspired to create music?
I know that there is always room to grow and knowing that inspires me to be creative and focus on my music.
What does it take to be iconic?
To be iconic you have to go against the grain and step outside of the box. In order to keep your listeners engaged you have to do something that you have never done before.
Who do you consider to be your peers in your field?
I consider my peers to be people that are motivated individuals and that are a positive aspect in my life.
Who are your top two role models?
Adele and Kelley Lester. I love Adele because she is very unique with her music and wants to inspire people through her music.
