Listen to the studio version of the song below.

It’s been an exciting time for Thunderstorm, who got married after his season on The Voice, and is now father to a son, Ezekiel Storm Artis. The singer was on tour with 90’s alternative music star, Jack Johnson. The biggest highlight of the tour was meeting Prince Harry!

“Finally back home man. these past couple days have just been filled with so many blessing I just feel like my cup is overflowing today,” Thunderstorm wrote on Instagram. “I can’t believe that I’ve gotten to perform on so many amazing stages with amazing artist like @jackjohnson @benharper and my brother @ronartisii and then having my new song on @greysabc and then getting to meet so many cool people at these shows man I can’t help my thank God for giving me all of these amazing opportunities.”

In the accompanying video, the singer drops a spoiler alert about the “craziest thing” that happened to him on tour But fans had to watch the video the entire way through for the royal cameo.

Thunderstorm competed on the “COVID season” of The Voice in spring 2020, receiving a four chair turn for his Blind Audition song, “Blackbird,” by the Beatles. Because of the pandemic, all the live shows were filmed remotely from singers homes. Although coach Nick Jonas stole the singer-songwriter from John Legend in the Knockouts, the two didn’t work together face to face! After performing the classic “What a Wonderful World” and his self-penned song, “Sedona” from home on the remote finale, the Hawaiian native finished the season in third place.

He’s released several singles and EPs since The Voice, including “Even If” and “All is Fair in Love and War” in 2021, and “Take Me to the Fire,” “Oh Little River” and “Wildfire” in 2022.
