The Nathaniel Johnstone Band



Dance, Percussion, Keyboards, Art

Tempest is the most recognized name associated with Gothic & Steampunk Fusion Bellydance in North America and across the world.

Tempest pulls from her visual arts background, literary tendencies, and global inspirations to create dance that crosses the boundaries of time and culture.  Her compellingly artful performances exemplify her distinctively theatrical, unique, and expressive style that are rooted in oriental dance technique with a transcendent approach.

Within the band, Tempest not only performs as a dancer and collaborates with

Nathaniel on musical concepts, but she also plays keyboards and zills (finger cymbals).  She is the main artist and designer behind the band's iconic art.

She is not the merch bitch (but she sure makes the booth look nice.)
