Thunderstorm Artis plays Saturday at The Belfry in Sisters.

Thunderstorm Artis’ musical journey has taken him from the island of Oahu to the popular televised vocal competition “The Voice” to the city of Portland to, on Saturday night, the stage at The Belfry in Sisters.

And the next stop’s a big one: A spring move to Nashville, where opportunities await that could kick Artis’ music career into an even higher gear.


Thunderstorm Artis will play one last Central Oregon show before a planned move to Nashville.
