…is composer/singer/pianist Carollyn Eden and writer/astronomer/musician Stuart Clark. First meeting in 2012 while working on The Enlightenment Café, an interactive science theatre show at London’s Old Vic Tunnels, Waterloo, it was here that they discovered their shared passion for music and the natural world. Carried by life on separate paths for several years it was only in 2017 after performing two of Carollyn’s songs together at the Spice of Life, Leicester Square, that they made the decision to form a band. The name Storm Deva had been chosen a few years earlier by Carollyn, while on that seemingly elusive quest to find a still available, captivating band name.
Working together on the music, they began to search for the sound world that best expressed their love of classical, rock and folk and would bring each song fully alive. Much experimentation followed. Eventually, the rich harmonic world of classical music formed around a solid core that beats with a rock heart. The final touch was to combine these strong elements with a subtle blend of folk and world elements to create the sound of Storm Deva.
During this exciting time new songs were also written. For the first time they featured rock guitar from the outset. The Journey was born out of Stuart’s powerful verse guitar riff and Carpe Diem featured a restless guitar riff of his as its opening.
Having travelled upon many stormy seas and at times through seemingly insurmountable challenges, Storm Deva is now ready to venture out into the world. We invite you to join the adventure.
Let this journey begin.
