Jason Tom (譚志豪), Hawaiʻi's Human Beatbox

My Female Beatbox Mentor

April 23, 2016 at 05:34PM

Elaine FinnellElaine Finnell (formerly known as Elaine Chao) is one of my earliest beatbox mentors. It's due to her inspirational Apollo live televised performance in 2003 that sparked an interest for me to pursue beatboxing professionally. Her snares, her mouth drumming, her scratches, crowd interaction is so on point!!! She was a co-worker of one of my first-cousins from the Bay Area.... who I am very close with. Elaine and I exchanged e-mails and she gave me wisdom and advice that it stuck with me forever. I apply everything she shared with me. It it weren't for her.. I wouldn't be the beatboxer that I am today. Thank you Elaine!!! You're the greatest female human beatbox of all time in my book!
