Interview with Stormcellars’ Calvin Armerding

In a recent interview with SoHa Happenings in Colorado®Journal, Stormcellars Group Member Calvin Armerding discussed the group's music, synergy, and plans. Here’s an excerpt from that discussion:

SoHa: How have you evolved as artists?

CA:We feel that as time has passed, we have really been able to find our voice and style. At first, our music was generally quiet/sad/contemplative, but as we have developed, we’ve been able to write, refine, record and perform foot-stompers along with our slower, intimate material. This diversity reflects who we are as a band: our relationships with each other are both frivolous, fun, and hilarious even as they are profound, deeply loving, and intimate. It’s such a pleasure to work and perform with people that you love so much, and we feel that our music reflects this joy, love, and honesty.

SoHa: Thank you, Calvin, for sharing your time and your thoughts and your music with us. We look forward to hearing more of your music and about you. Find out more…
