Biography

The son of a blues musician and pianist, Hobbit was surrounded by music from birth. Quickly becoming an accomplished artist in his own right, Hobbit soon found percussion to be his true calling and with his love of music, naturally gravitated towards beatboxing. By the age of 15, he was already entertaining packed venues. Performing at every given opportunity gained him a loyal following, leading to numerous shows and collaborations with various live acts around the world. From one-off shows to international tours, Hobbit soon found himself performing to crowds of over 60,000 and to TV audiences over 7,000,000 with an 100% vocal show. His popularity is also down to his impressive battle record, being a Vauxhall UK Beatbox Championships finalist and holding titles such as 2012 Freeze Beatbox Champion, 2013 UK Loopstation Champion and 2x UK Team Champion.A show not to be missed, Hobbit will leave jaws dropped to the floor and heads nodding!
