Biography

I grew up in a family where all genre's of music were honored. I start playing the trumpet at 9 yrs old. Earned a scholarship to college but ended up in the county jail instead. Disillusioned and hurt by domestic violence, sexual abuse and racial predjudice I ,in anger, chose to rob a pawn shop to earn money for a band. In the county jail I received Christ as my Savior. Later in the state pen I played in the prison jazz band, start playing the acoustic guitar and singing praise songs. Upon my release I ended up in a aberrant christian sect and after a year got out of the group but lost faith in God and in myself. In a drug addicted rage as I was just about to take another's life (I did not take that life) I had a spiritual awakening that human life was sacred stamped with God's image and that also meant that my life was sacred also (profound feelings of significance). I was sentenced to five years for the attempt to take another's life. Later back in prison, after asking forgiveness and giving my heart back to God, I wrote a rap song about God being my Father-He truly forgave me and adopted me as His son in Christ- which started a deep soul healing, cleansing and spiritual infilling; the genesis of the "Thunder Sound"was born. I sing, rap, play acoustic gitaur and the trumpet; I also write and produce songs I hear by His inspiration. Whether jazz, folk, hip hop,Holy hip hop,rock, contemporary christian or praise and worship I do all in the name of the Lord who has mercy on me. I Thunder His Praise with a sound from the guttermost to the uttermost, check out this annoited fresh sound. A Bay area Pastor called this sound " Fresh Baked Bread".

He's My Father

Written By: Thunder X

Thunder His praise, all day everyday Father God [i]s the One who rules and reigns, He's strong to save with truth and grace comin back one day taken over this thang, He's immortal, invincible, wonderful, powerful, mighty God, Living God, does the impossible, strong to save everyday He rules and reigns< chorus: He's my Father, He's my Father, My Father is God, He's my Father praise God! [repeat] 2nd verse: The Father Son Holy Spirit lovin one another and enjoyin it each and every moment,it was all so good they decided to share and in Genesis one they said "let us make man" to rule be fruitful and multiply to love the Lord your God and to eat the tree of life to do what's pleasing in His sight to be with Him forever one with Him in paradise, but the man and and the woman chose their own way, didn't listen to the Lord they disobeyed, plunged into sin the whole human race, full of shame and blame their destiny changed from children to slaves, death and the grave, denied put away but don't be dismayed His Love saved the day and made a way for the woman and man to make a change..God's justice demanded, God's justice demanded, God's justice demanded! His justice demanded His Sons' blood as the price for our sin debt to be paid, at the appointed time n day Christ came to die on the cross to take our place, the earth shook shaked and quaked the sun faded slipped gave away to darkness happening about noonday, reaching heaven's throne the Angles moaned and groaned high noon it was on and full of forlorn, the Father had to turn His back on His Son, He'd become an offering for sin savin us from the predicament we were in,loving pain in His eyes He died as He cried "it is finished" the debt was paid in full and done so we as daughter's and son's can be full of the wonder of His wonderful Love shout hallelujah the victory we've won!! break it down..trumpet solo: chorus>Praise God!!!

Testimony

Written By: Thunder X

Creation its a wonder to behold, mountains valley's trees so bold and beautiful, sun moon day night stars in the sky, created and made by master design, from the smallest details to the great huge thangs all so good that the Lord God made
Chorus: Testimonaae testimonaae testimonaae-ee [it's a testimony] Testimonaae testimonaae testimonaae-ee O stamped by His Signet ring
verse 2
teach to ya reach to ya open your ears would ya coz I was sent to bring it to ya, ya say from out of nothing through an amoeba from the sea ya came to be, that's something I'd really like to see- getting something from nothing, from nothing comes something- funny why doesn't it happen to my money, Darwin was fooled and embraced a lie, evolutionize, ya need your mind revolutionized, some day you'll look the Almighty in the eye then whose existence will be denied
Chorus >Bridge Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!
verse 3
evolutionist the fossil record embrasses you, real truth as it is militates against you, your blind can't see listen to me there's no missing link, I repeat transitional mechanisms are not found, stop foolin and clownin around, stinkin thinkin got you sleepin and blink'n, slippin dippin trippin over truth that your missin,like a twister blowin junk into a jet, junk science at best, failing the test, a scholarly mess, makes no sense let me school you in this, God full of Lovin, stepped out on nothin, grabbed a whole bunch of somethin threw it out there no where spread everywhere to be there it came back a universe, that's Genesis one chapter and verse, chaos to reality- reality by design I report you decide God is alive the LIVING TRUE HOLY LORD GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY
Chorus>Bridge>Chant: The ax is laid to the roots we choppin the lie's with the truth [4x's]
Architect, Creator, Designer, Ruler- The Heavens announce the Glory of God;the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they are speaking to you; night after night they display knowledge. There is no culture or language where there speaking is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the end of the world (Psalm 19:1-4) PRAISE GOD!
