Singer/cover artist Mike Tompkins says with his Youtube channel he aims to be “a new kind of talent for an ever-changing musical landscape”. He may just achieve that. His and innovative videos in which he recreates top 40 hits using only the sound of his voice (and maybe a few hand claps) have become insanely popular, so much so that he landed the gig as opening act for the Jonas Brothers on their last tour. Watch the songs he covers below and wait till the end to see how he created each drum beat and bass bop. Super interesting stuff!
Here’s him singing Teenage Dream & Just The Way You Are by Katy Perry and Bruno Mars respectively.
Here’s Mike covering Rolling In The Deep, featuring the always underrated hand claps.
Crazy right? The faces he makes when he’s seeing the low notes for the bass part are just the best thing ever right now. And his videos are always well shot I think. Don’t forget to check out the rest of them on his Youtube channel. If you liked Mike, give this post a share on Facebook.
