The Summer Storms formed in 2015 by founding members Michael Ptacek (bass), Amanda O'Brien (vocals, dobro, harmonica) and Thaddeus O'Brien (vocals, guitar) in the Kansas City area. The trio has enjoyed broad-ranging inspiration from the folk, rock, jazz, and blues communities and aspires to create a warm, original Americana sound that both lives in and defies the classifications of the musical genres from which it came.
