Thomas Thunder

 

"I see my life in terms of music”

 

A powerful quote by the renowned genius Albert Einstein.   This holds true for 14 year old Drummer and Progressive Rock/Metal songwriter Thomas Thunder.  Just in his teens, this young musician from Fairhaven, Massachusetts is here to prove that a child can not only perform as a musician, but be a successful songwriter as well.  With his intricate Progressive Rock/Metal songs that include odd time signatures and unique instrumentation, he has captured the attention of fans as well as professional musicians.

 

Thomas began his journey as a musician when he started drum lessons at age five.  He started playing in a performance band by age eight at School of Rock, and it was there that Thomas was inspired to start songwriting himself.  At age 10 years old, Thomas released his first single, and he was awarded a prize in the Eventide Theater Songwriting competition.  Thomas has also been featured on the British Prog Rock blog,  participated on a radio interview for WBSM, and landed the cover of American Pride Magazine.  He also has achieved three Number One hits on the independent music chart The Fabchart.

 

His love of Progressive Metal bands like Sons of Apollo, Dream Theater and Tool permeate his songwriting.  In fact,  Thomas grabbed the attention of the ‘King of Keyboards’ Derek Sherinian (Sons of Apollo member; ex Dream Theater; Alice Cooper, etc) with his songs.  Thomas has written several songs that feature Derek on keyboards and his new album also has guest musicians Ron "Bumblefoot "Thal" (Sons of Apollo; ex Guns n Roses) on guitar and Tony Franklin (The Firm; Jimmy Page) on bass!  

 

This superstar collaboration has solidified for Thomas to continue on the path as a musician and songwriter.  Becoming a professional musician, performing live, and Prog Rock/Metal songwriting are his musical goals.  Already at age 14, his original music is published on all streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple and iTunes.  His music has won awards, and he is working with three of his musical heroes.  The future looks bright for Thomas Thunder!
