  • Tom Thum - Beating the Habit

    BEATING THE HABIT

    Tom Thum Beating The Habbit

    Beatbox addict and star of Tom Tom Crew, TOM THUM returns with his 2012 sell-out Fringe hit ‘Beating the Habit’.

     WINNER UNDERBELLY EDINBURGH AWARD – ADELAIDE FRINGE 2012.

    Since his award-winning debut at Adelaide Fringe last year, THUM has been invited to tours in London, Edinburgh, Brisbane, Germany, and Singapore and now he’s returning to Adelaide.

    "Doctors need to study this young man, so unnerving are his vocal capabilities"

         THE GAZETTE

    ‘Artistry out of addiction’

    TOM THUM attempts Beating the Habit that no amount of rehab can cure. Armed with a healthy dose of humour and charisma, Thum solo show is a sonic journey into the mind and overworked vocal chords of Australia’s most prolific beatboxer.  An amusing and alarming story of the boy who developed a voice box with a mind of its own. 

    Packing an entire sound system into his throat, but with only a microphone in hand, Thum creates mind-blowing soundscapes of impossible beats, phenomenal sounds and a whole big-band’s worth of instruments.

    TOM THUM achieved international status early on; winning Beatboxing World Championships from Berlin to Cincinatti, fronting sold out shows spanning from London to New York’s Broadway; Montreal to Bogota and even sharing a stage with hip-hop legends such as Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash.

    Winner of best noise and sound effects (2010) and Team Battle (2005) at the World Beatbox Convention (Berlin, Germany), Thum was Australia's best beatboxer five years in a row at the Oz Hip Hop Awards. Thum also received second place at the Scribble Jam Beatbox Battles (2006); America’s most prestigious hip hop competition. He is also a collector of fierce animals.

    Produced by award winning, internationally renowned production company Strut & Fret, the creators and producers of Cantina, Tom Tom Crew and Le Gateau Chocolat. "A brilliantly inventive company" THE GUARDIAN (UK).

    "The mic master seems to have an orchestra living in his throat: trumpet blasts, guitar strums and samples from classic songs including Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ effortlessly sprout from his mouth."

    TIME OUT (NY)

    "Tom Thum appears to have swallowed an entire orchestra and several backing singers."

    THE GUARDIAN (UK)

    "If there is a better artist in his field anywhere in the world I would be surprised"
