Cloud Stokely is a Black queer hip-hop artist whose influences can be found in the dazzling glam rock and synth of the 80’s as well as the energy and lyricism of 90’s hip hop and R&B. Their major musical influences are varied, ranging from genius rappers – Outkast, Childish Gambino, and Noname, to name a few – to artists with heartbreakingly beautiful voices and eclectic expressions of passion and joy like Solange, Josephine Baker, and Prince.
In addition to music, Cloud has exhibited a passion for art and a performance as a whole. They have danced in some of Portland’s more popular strip clubs, performed drag and burlesque numbers across various Portland and Seattle venues, and generally dabble in anything that is joyously creative.
