About this Event

Thunderstorm Artis is a singer/songwriter born on the North Shore of O‘ahu. Thunder is a featured artist at the Wanderlust Festivals throughout North America and is currently on a solo tour of the West Coast. He toured for many years with his brother, renowned guitarist Ron Artis II. Thunderstorm has also played with Jack Johnson, Mick Fleetwood, Booker T, and opened recent tours with G Love, and Mike Love.

Thunder’s music crosses many genres including folk, rock, soul and country. At his concerts he has been known to jump into Bowie, Beatles, Elton John and a heart wrenching version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

More about Thunderstorm Artis: He learned at a very young age to play piano, guitar, harp, and percussion from his father Ron Artis and mother Victoria. Ron was a Motown session player who played keyboards on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. His mother Victoria was also a member of the Motown family, touring as a vocalist with Lena Horne and many other Motown greats.

No matter what Thunder sings or writes, he does it from his heart. His life experience has given him plenty of material to share. Thunder does not consider his music as notes on a page but rather a window into his heart. He believes that through his music he can make our world a better place by lifting the hearts of others. Thunder’s upbeat music and infectious smile bring people to their feet at every stop.
