Peter Hollens

Peter Hollens, of Eugene, Oregon, is a prominent beatboxer – but he’s been making music of the more usual kind for quite some time, having founded the well-known a cappella group at the University of Oregon, On the Rocks. His vocal performances are elaborate, and it’s fascinating to hear just how complex the results of this approach to music can be, and to watch them: his videos are both fun and instructive (he often appends short breakdowns of the various tracks to them, and one or two of these have been included in the playlist).
