ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy returned to screens on October 6, 2022, for its 19th season and, as usual, brought with it its time-honored soundscape. As audiences got reacquainted with their favorite Grey-Sloan Memorial staff, fans took to Tunefind to identify their favorite songs from the season premiere. The return of this juggernaut of a series resulted in 3 claimed spots on the trending chart last week, including the #1. Last week’s top TV song is by a former The Voice competitor and Oahu, Hawaii native.
‘Stronger (Grey’s Anatomy Version)’ accompanies an emblematic surgery montage that will feel like home to most Grey’s Anatomy fans. Viewers can hear the entire track play out over almost three minutes of on-screen time as the surgeons, patients, and family members move on and off-screen, navigating the various spaces of the hospital. The track is bluesy and soulful and manages to feel grounded in the dramatic medical setting of the show.
They were both [Artis and Agee] incredibly gracious in taking the time to create some new lyrics for the song that further enhanced the triple organ transplant sequence featuring the song in the premiere.”- Justin Kamps, Grey’s Anatomy Music Supervisor
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Thunderstorm Artis and producer Dan Agee to create a unique version of his single ‘Stronger’ for the season 19 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy,” shares Justin Kamps, Grey’s Anatomy music supervisor. “They were both incredibly gracious in taking the time to create some new lyrics for the song that further enhanced the triple organ transplant sequence featuring the song in the premiere. I hope everyone takes the time to listen to ‘Stronger’ again, outside of the show, because it is such an incredible song and Thunderstorm is a true talent.”
‘Stronger (Grey’s Anatomy Version)’ was released as a single on October 6, 2022, and garnered almost 20,000 streams in just under 5 days. Thunderstorm took to Facebook Reels on October 6th to share with fans that his freshly released single was due to make its nominal appearance on the Grey’s Anatomy season premiere later that night. Artis shares his excitement with his fans in an endearing announcement while explaining that this special placement also serves as his first sync placement.
Artis was born and raised in a large musical family on the North Shore of Oahu and cites his inspiration from the laid-back vibe of island life, effortlessly blended with real life experiences. Thunderstorm grew up in a full house with 10 siblings and music in his genes. The singer/songwriter was inspired by his father, Ron Artis, a Motown musician best known for playing the keyboards on Michael Jackson’s 1982 hit ‘Thriller.’ Artis was a finalist on the 2020 spring season of The Voice and ended up coming in third place.
Thunderstorm Artis has made appearances on Tunefind while competing on The Voice, this serves as Thunderstorm Artis’s first sync placement.
