One of the best alternative rock bands out of San Francisco. Ever.
Storm, Inc. started in the winter of 2000, when Storms' previous band, Storm and her Dirty Mouth decided to change up the personel. Shaunna began to sit in with the band as a support guitarist for acoustic gigs.
Shaunna and Storm began to write and proved to be a good team. Here We Are is the first song produced from their collaborative efforts, and can be heard along with several others on the groups' only CD, The Calm Years.
The Calm Years was Produced and recorded by Jim Dean in San Rafael at Commander Save Studios in January and February of 2001. The CD was released and a West Coast tour followed in the spring.
Shaunna left the group in May, and the band continued as a four-piece about 6 months before it broke up for good.
