Thundercat is Stephen Bruner, but no one calls him that. He is a studio bassist with a long list of seriously worthy bands and musicians he’s toured with, including Suicidal Tendencies (while still in high school), Erykah Badu, and Kendrick Lamar. The Kendrick Lamar gig ended up in a recording, To Pimp a Butterfly, for which Thundercat received a Grammy award. At 15 he was in No Curfew, a band that had a hit record in Germany. Thirty-two as of this writing, Thundercat’s own debut CD, The Golden Age of Apocalypse, has been out for only a few years. He has since released two more.
