I found Mike about a year ago when i was scouring youtube for something to entertain me, when i clicked on his video little did i know that it was to be love at first sight. He’s cute, talented and obviously has a sense of humour (he did a dude version of Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The USA”).
Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada during the historic tornado on July 31st, life for Mike Tompkins has been punctuated by memorable events, the most recent of which includes being rocketed to notoriety mixing his talents to create music using only his voice and mouth. Mike’s novel ‘A Capella’ music has stemmed from over a decade of demanding and diverse musical and production pursuits, starting with beatboxing at the age of 8.
Take a look at some of my favourite Mike Tompkins acapella covers (if you’re going to watch any of them, make sure you watch the first one!):
Katy Perry – Teenage Dream/Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are
Katy Perry – Firework
Taio Cruz – Dynamite
Maroon 5 – Misery
Rihanna – Only Girl In The World
