Mike Tompkins, Have you watched or heard of the now famous Mike Tompkins, caused a sensation on YouTube? In case you do not, we have everything you need to know about the unique talent YouTube here. Tompkins took his one talent man band at the Today Show November 15, 2010 to help the hosts to create a YouTube video of Dynamite by Taio Cruz. Not only do we have that video, but we have some other vids popular Tompkins himself has created.
Meet Mike Tompkins, talent Youtube single man. Tompkins takes popular songs and recreates them in his own way. The 23-years old London, Ontario Canada native does all the production, engineering and mixing his unique mix acapella. And, he even sings!
After Mike graduated from high school, he went to attend the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology (OIART) and earned a degree in music production.
Tompkins began beat boxing at age 8 years and since then he has experimented with all aspects of musical creation. It was not until 2010 that Tompkins has decided to create a unique form of a cappella music which involves the completion of each part of the song itself set. Most music artists have their own separate mixers, engineers and production team … Tompkins not! All the sounds you hear on his YouTube account just come from the mouth Tompkins and voice.
It was his cover of Katy Perry “Teenage Dream” and Bruno Mars “Just the Way You Are” which landed Tompkins over 2 million views … and it’s just time for a month. Damn awesome!
So what are the goals of Mike as an artist? All he wants to do is put a smile on your face!
