The Voice win­ner at Air­lie Beach

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

THE win­ner of this year’s se­ries of The Voice, Sam Perry, will per­form in Air­lie Beach to­mor­row night as part of re­gional tour.

The vo­cal loop artist struck a chord with Aus­tralian mu­sic fans and view­ers of The Voice, tak­ing out the top ac­co­lade this year.

Since win­ning the pop­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion, Perry said he had been “build­ing a bunch of new sounds”.

“I’m now learn­ing how to har­ness loops and am work­ing to get tracks down,” he said.

“It’s been a whirl­wind. It all hap­pened so quickly.”

Perry has also worked with Dub Fx, the man who first in­spired him to get into loop­ing in the first place.

“I spent count­less hours watch­ing his videos on YouTube, as soon as I saw him, I knew that’s what I wanted to do,” he said.

“It’s mind blow­ing to work with him.”

Perry started his tour in mid-Novem­ber, with the Air­lie Beach per­for­mance one of nine through­out the coun­try and one of two in Queens­land.

For Perry, who lives in Perth, it is im­por­tant to in­clude re­gional towns in his tours.

“I know a lot of the re­gional towns miss out on the big acts,” he said.

“I can’t wait to get around and meet as many peo­ple as I can.”

This will not be Perry’s first time in Air­lie Beach.

He vis­ited for the first time ear­lier this year on a hol­i­day, sail­ing around the Whit­sun­days re­gion for five days.

He al­ready loves the place and is look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing to per­form at Mag­nums Ho­tel to­mor­row night.
