HOBBIT

Hobbit has been beatboxing since 2003, performing everything from intimate gigs to stadium tours across the world. Passionate to push the artform as well as himself. Proof in this is being the official 2x UK Loopstation Champion, 3x UK Team Champion with '2rBeat' and being part of World Champion beatboxers, 'The Beatbox Collective'. His show has taken him from Glastonbury Festival to Times Square. This has given him opportunities to work with Virgin Media, Microsoft Windows, Audix, SKY and also artists such as UK Pop Legend Gabrielle.

 

In 2010, Hobbit co-wrote and performed the soundtrack to 20 Stories High’s theatre production, "Ghost Boy". Due to the success of this, he was asked to create more music with cellist Hannah Marshall on their biggest show to date, "Melody Loses Her Mojo". In 2016 he returned to stage as part of “The Broke 'n' Beat Collective” national tour to create all the music and soundscape live, and being an integral member of the cast. This process helped lead the shows to 5 star rave reviews on their national tours.

 

A true creative force, Hobbit got to show his versatility as an artist by playing with Indian kathak performer Guari Sharma Tripathi, curating a live Beatbox and Comedy show with the incredibly funny Jarred Christmas, which has toured the UK and the  Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 & 2015, is a member of legendary UK A capella group 'The Magnets' and voicing the character 'Juke' on Cartoon Network show “The Amazing World of Gumball” among much more.
