Biography

Mike Tompkins was born in 1990 and grew up in Ilderton, a small town outside of London, Ontario, Canada. At the young age of 8, Mike started beatboxing, the beginnings of an increasing passion for music. During his high school years, Mike performed in a variety of professional musical theatre productions. Mike graduated with the vocal music award from high school and continued on to post-secondary education at the industry renowned Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology (OIART). In 2008 Mike graduated from OIART with a diploma in music production, receiving honours distinction and two awards.

Over the past 10 years, Mike has kept a demanding and diverse schedule of musical and production pursuits, including production, engineering and mixing of numerous albums (Juno nominated artist Shad K’s “The Old Prince”).

Mike had never thought of releasing any of his own music; however at the beginning of 2010, his drive and determination to do something ‘different’ (just like his determination to one day grow a beard), led to his most recent venture, creating unique A Cappella music. His cover of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”/Bruno Mars “Just The Way You Are” shot to over 2 million views in under a month. Mike’s main goal is to put a smile on peoples faces and show his diversity as an artist.
