Hometown: Evansville, Indiana

Genre: Indie Rock

Why We're Excited: There's a yearning, searching quality to Thunder Dreamer's majestic rock that lands somewhere between The Shins and My Morning Jacket — which is to say, it soars beautifully in songs that pack real emotional heft. Thunder Dreamer's music would sound terrific in a bar, to be sure, but songs like "Capture" are even better served ringing out into the open air.
