Continuing to support and celebrate women in the arts

Providence, RI, July 19, 2011 On July 15th 30 young women between the ages of 13 and 18 debuted their week-old bands performing original songs at the Girls Rock RI Showcase. Isis Storm Co-founders Reza “Wreckage” Clifton (aka Venus Sings)  and Kal “5th Elament” Champlain attended to show their support.

This was the second annual “Girls Rock Camp Showcase” and the event took place at the Hope Artiste Village, 1005 Main Street in Pawtucket Rhode Island. This was a powerful conclusion to the week long camp that is held by Girls Rock RI (GRR) ( This camp not only empowered these young women through music,  but also through media and self defense workshops.

As the young women blew the roof off with their amazing sounds, tears filled the eyes of the Isis Storm co-founders . Each of them were so happy to support such an amazing project that aligns itself with their own mission of women empowerment through art and media. Champlain stated,  “I was blown away by their talent, courage, and perseverance. It was totally inspiring.” Both partners also participated behind the scenes and during the camp with Clifton sitting on the GRR board, and Champlain volunteering her time to perform and stay for an artist Q&A at Thursday’s  camp close .

The event held such sponsers as: Empire Guitars, Hope Artiste Village, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, Dash Bicycle, White Electric, Village Drum, Julian’s of Providence, Frog & Toad and more.  For a full list as well as a day to day account of the experience you can visit their blog at

Isis Storm will continue to build with Girls Rock RI and you can be expecting more partnership in the near future. For now, keep these ladies on your radar and get ready for the Ladies Rock Camp coming soon!
