RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW SHEENA STORMER

Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.

What made you decide to become a soloist?

The fact that it is impossible to find a band for a lot of small-town rocker kids nowadays. Plus even in bigger areas, kids’ music taste is trash too

Introduce us all to you and your musical history?

I started singing when I was 2. I would never shut up. Singing in the shower, while doing chores, while playing with dolls, while doing homework. Finally, when I was 12 I went to proper classes for three years and got the main information I needed to sing better and healthier. Then almost 4 years later I would have my EP out with thousands of streams. I guess I manifested it

What’s the best piece of advice you have received?

Honestly don’t know. Whatever my idols said about their path to success to the public

Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic? If so what?

No

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?

Yeah. But might get murdered like other people and celebs if I play that game

What support is out there for new artists in your hometown ?

None. My hometown doesn’t believe musicians can live off music

Who is inspiring you at the minute on the unsigned scene in your hometown?

My new friend Anna, who I’m trying to make my drummer, and…myself?



Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about?

I was taken to the police station once when I was like freshly 12 for going on a walk with my friends at 4 AM

What’s your favourite song to play live and why?

Well, from the released ones, “Groupie”. Because everyone gets the hype, and I really think I made a bop right there; and unreleased, “Punk Young Lady”.

I hear you have a new single brewing, what can you tell us about it?

Talk me through the thought process of the single/album? Groupie Goes Rockstar is an EP that reflects all aspects of love, told in a rock n’ roll way. From starting to crush on someone, to finding pain in loving someone, from realizing you deserve better and from not wanting to leave because of emotional attachment.

What was the recording process like? Recording was actually the shortest part of the whole project (for my part). Took two days, more or less 4 hours each day. One day to record the vocals and the next for the background vocals.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the EP?

How to process pain and how to have higher standards.

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

I don’t think so.

What are your plans for the year ahead?

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world? Well…I’m trying to release another sort of thing, of course. The songs I have thought of for this next project, are also very personal. One of the songs talks about a very strong connection with someone who isn’t alive anymore. And well the other I hope it’s Punk Young Lady. It’s probably my favourite or second favorite song I’ve written. Aside from all that, I’ve continued writing songs and creating beats on my computer.

Thanks for doing us today folks, all the best and keep in touch.
