Hobbit has been beatboxing since 2003, performing everything from intimate gigs to stadium tours across the world. Passionate to push the art form as well as himself. He has left his mark on the battle scene by becoming the official 2013 & 2014 UK Loopstation Champion, 3x UK Team Champion integral member of 2015 World Champion beatbox crew The Beatbox Collective as well as participating and judging multiple international battles. His show has taken him from Glastonbury Festival and all the way to New Zealand. This has given him opportunities to work with and create content for Dominos Pizza, FedEx and Harvest Digital Agriculture, appear on National TV shows such as BBC World News, Blue Peter and The Paul O’Grady show and support artists like Run DMC and UK Pop Legend Gabrielle.
As well as performing solo beatbox shows, in 2010 Hobbit co-wrote and performed the soundtrack to 20 Stories High’s theatre production, “Ghost Boy” and again in 2013 for “Melody Loses Her Mojo” along with cellist Hannah Marshall. In 2016 he was back on stage as part of “The Broke ‘n’ Beat Collective” international tour, creating all the music and soundscape live, as well as being an integral member of the cast. This process helped lead the show to multiple 5 star reviews. In 2019, he returned to the theatre stage having co-composed and performed all the music live for the very successful kids show Big Up! And in 2022 created the music and soundscape for Fuel Theatre’s immersive children’s theatre show “Issy, Bosss and Fractal” written by Keisha Thompson.
Hobbit has been able to show his versatility as an artist by working with multiple projects including Indian kathak performer Guari Sharma Tripathi, writing and performing the music/soundscape for the award winning dance piece “Family Honour” by Spoken Movement, appearing on multiple comedy line ups and curating “The Mighty Kid’s Beatbox Comedy Show” with the incredibly funny Jarred Christmas; which has toured the UK and had a sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and voicing the character ‘Juke’ on Cartoon Network show “The Amazing World of Gumball” among much more.
