Sam Perry is a name thousands of Australians have fallen in love with through 2018. The young vocal loop artist struck a chord with Australian music fans and viewers of The Voice, where Perry took out the winner’s title for 2018.
If you missed out on The Voice this year, Perry made his way through the competition under the guidance of US superstar Kelly Rowland, shifting the goalposts of what has generally been considered the norm for contestants with his unique musical style as a vocal loop artist. This manipulation and delivery of sounds in different ways quickly made him a household name – and for good reason.
Now, Perry is taking his talents on the road for a national tour this November and December – his first tour since winning the competition, bringing his thriving live show to venues around the country.
That’s not all though. Being the legend that he is, he has also launched a competition of his own. A strong supporter of new talent, Perry has put a call out for young artists to submit their music, with one selected to support him on his national tour in each state.
“Starting out as a local artist in a small town, I know all too well how hard it can be to meet the right people, and be heard amongst the already established bands. I’m not great at networking and there is not really a rule book to follow. All I knew, is that I wanted to perform to a room of people, that were there to listen. I can’t wait to hear all your music, and find a local support act to join me in their city on my tour around the country.”
