STORi is an American singer, songwriter, and artist born in the Bronx, NY and raised in Bergen County NJ.
At 18, STORi got the chance to perform Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love” on Amateur Night at The Apollo Theatre. Although she didn’t win, she finished the whole song and wasn’t boo’d off the stage. A few years later she was introduced to DJ AP who encouraged her to remix known rap, r&b and pop songs in which he would blast out to other DJ’s, securing radio airplay followed by recognition from fans, tastemakers and music industry insiders.
Signed to Motown/ Capitol Music Group in 2012, STORi has opened up shows for artists such as Grammy award winning songstress Chrisette Michele, The RED BULL concert series in Atlanta & New York, and released the mixtape “Badassdame” in 2013.
Working with some of the industry’s top names, including Mike Will, Dem Jointz, Timbaland, Justice League, Jerry Wonda, and Naughty by Nature’s Treach on the Scoop Deville produced single “Come On” to name a few, it was towards the end of her time with Motown that STORi had a chance encounter with Tyra Banks, leading to working on the promotional anthem “Bootyful” for the launch of her cosmetics line, Tyra Beauty.
STORi was also featured on two episodes of the hit show, America’s Next Top Model. For the two episode finale, the models shot commercials to the makeup bop.
All the while still writing about her life experiences, and recording non-stop, STORi has been able to fine tune her writing and storytelling skills to take every listener on a relatable journey.
Her latest collaboration efforts include working with the Jingle Punks, securing placements on the Netflix series “Girls Incarcerated”, as well as producers T-Town, who she first collaborated with on her “Badassdame” mixtape, and the Amsterdam duo, Yellow Claw on their second and third studio albums, Los Amsterdam & New Blood, which was released in the summer of 2018.
