Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

One is good with his fingers, the other is good with his mouth.

Beatbox sensation and one-man orchestra, Tom Thum – best known for the most watched TEDx talk of all time – joins forces with bohemian singer-songwriter, Jamie MacDowell, to form a truly unique duo that are “redefining musical parameters” (Nouse).

Armed only with a guitar and a versatile voice box able to convey any instrument, this show eschews cynicism, exudes joy, and defies expectations. A funny, riotous combination of folk-pop songs and virtuosic beat-boxing that just works, even if you can’t work out why.

Be part of an extraordinary evening of sound with some of the most exciting music makers in the country.
