The Voice winner at Airlie Beach
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.
