Growing up in metro Detroit listening to her parents funk, disco, and Motown music helped set the tone for Thornstryker’s true passion and influence for music. First putting her hands on the mixing decks 7 years ago, then onto performing in metro Detroit bars and clubs as a karaoke and open mic host.
