2020 JUNO nominee STORRY dropped her new album, CH III: The Come Up on Thursday.
CH III: The Come Up is an autobiographical work that the Toronto-based R&B star says is drawn largely from her real-life experiences transitioning from the sex industry to the music industry and social issues that exist within both worlds.
STORRY dropped a music video for her single off the album, “Money Ain’t Free”, last Tuesday on her YouTube channel.
Here is STORRY talking about her new album in her own words:
“The second half to the album’s story, that’s not explicitly in the album, is how I overcame all the hardships of the industry. After my literal blood, sweat and tears later, I decided to do everything myself. Write, produce, design, promote, literally everything you can think of for this album. It was exhausting but extremely liberating. It’s been a lifetime in the making. And even though it may seem like I sprung out of nowhere, I’ve been stifled, hidden, working in the dark for many many years. I’m soooooo happy this album is finally here. This is just the beginning.”
STORRY is nominated for Reggae Recording of the Year at the JUNOs for her song “Another Man”, which appears on the 2019 reggae compilation album Pocket Book Riddim.
She will also be performing several dates leading up to the JUNO award ceremony:
February 22 – Bar Le Ritz PDB – Montreal, QC – Info & Tickets
March 2 – Producer Mondays at Nublu151 – New York, NY
March 19 – Up Film Screening at Carleton Cinema – Toronto, ON
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
