What Influenced Me to Start Beatboxing

May 4, 2013 at 05:13PM

I get asked from time to time how I got influenced into what I do with the art of beatboxing. To summarize, it essentially started off (during the pre-YouTube era) with Michael Jackson's music, then Michael Jackson as an artist, which gradually expanded to life experiences and other influences including Rahzel, Elaine Chao, and more along the way (i.e. Bobby McFerrin, Michael Winslow, Doug E. Fresh, etc.). To be more specific and in depth... I decided to devote this blog entry about my adventure into the beatboxing realm and the story starts off below this paragraph...

It all began being exposed at an early age during the mid 1980's to the Michael Jackson song "Bad." Also seeing several versions of the music video on television for "Bad" such as the original version…

Michael Winslow Show

I would like to thank everyone who came out to the Michael Winslow show at Hawaiian Brian's. I would also like to thank my supporters and fans that rooted me on to do this show before it was even announced. Shout out to James Mane on hosting the show! It was my final show of 2012 (and my first show of 2013 is tomorrow night at thirtyninehotel). Here's media coverage by Nonstop Honolulu's Eric Baranda: "Comedian Michael Winslow: Man of 10,000 Sound Effects."

Shout out to Cintamani and Sajili for these Instagram photos.

I like all of them, but as a personal brand the one done by the media company with the outline and Hawaii's Human Beatbox is my favorite. Tom Thum is so dope in everything he does but in this instance, as far as a brand logo, I like the last one on the post. Maybe mess with colors etc. have an aloha version maybe.

Love the Ton Thum logo...Dope!

So dope, all of it! :D

I really appreciate this logo and it has flavor and style!

I think ur logo great jason and cool also u shouldnt change that way its great

Aloha Jason,

Thank you for your kind words, this is a unique and awesome video, keep inspiring others to do well in their life, keep up with the beatboxing, it takes a lot of practice and dedicatication towards your goals what you want to achieve in life, I think you found it! Keep spreading the positive vibes it’s nice in meeting a new friends Aloha!

Awesome! So high energy and amazing spirit! Keep spreading your talents and positive vibes, God knows we need more love, laughter and aloha in this world!

Love your heroes :D Some of them at are mine too. Amazing journey and talent. But more importantly, you have a beautiful Soul and spirit Jason, and it's really nice to meet people like you :)

You are a man of many talents! A true renaissance man.
Every time I hear a gecko in my house, I feel a sense of peace. Gecko Man!

That is such a neat story and cool creation to use from it! I believe Jason Tom becomes more and more creative because he has an audience to speak to. Keep expressing JT! We're absorbing you!!

I am glad you are putting your dreams into reality! The only way to progress is to always push forward. Every step will lead you to your destination. I am wondering what your plans are for this logo? Honest opinion, visually, the color of him is a little washed out. Depending on how you brand this and use it, people may not understand what this is, but is an amazing vector and captures your personality and essence. I can't wait to see where this takes you!

I really like the concept and the drawing! Really moves the reader

Cool story bro.

This is pretty dope! And cute story

It's an awesome drawing.
