An Artist to Get Hyped About
Stephen Lee Bruner is a Jack of all trades, and is known for his thorough collaboration with Rap artist Kendrick Lamar, Infectious Grooves, and his ongoing project with his stage name, Thundercat. At this high point of his career he is attributed to reinventing Jazz with the new label for the genre ‘Acid Jazz.’
Thundercat released his latest and third album in 2017 “Drunk”.

Also note there are bonus collaborations featuring Kenny Loggins, Kendrick Lamar, and Michael McDonald.
