Stolen Thunder-101.jpg



Stolen Thunder is a four-piece alternative rock band formed in Santa Barbara, California, in 2011.  Early influences range from Queen to Metallica to Alice in Chains.

The band practiced for years at Rockshop Academy, under the direction of George Pendergast of Dishwalla. Stolen Thunder went on to win the most votes in a VH1 nationwide music video contest (for challenging the lack of funding for music in our public schools. No stranger to live audiences, the band has performed at such notable venues as Rockstock 2013 & 2014, the Arlington Theater, Ojai Libbey Bowl, the Lobero Theater, Cold Spring Tavern, Whisky-a-Go-Go, House of Blues and Hard Rock Cafe.

In 2015, MIX Magazine mentioned Stolen Thunder as “a band to watch”. Music insiders have compared the young band to skilled studio musicians well beyond their years.  In 2017, the band recorded their first EP at Studio 606 with Chief Engineer, John "Lou" Lousteau.

The band is set to begin touring in 2018, in support of their debut EP, "Desire", after inspired performances at their sold-out Cental Coast record release shows.
