SAM PERRY (AUS)
Talent-spotted last year at the Adelaide Fringe Festival by Splore’s performance curator, Sam Perry impressed as a quintessential Splore act.
He is a one man orchestra. Armed with only a loop station, effect pedal and microphone Perry is able to create layer upon layer of haunting vocal harmonies, heavy basslines and break-beat, beat boxed rhythms - live on the spot.
Early 2013 Sam was scouted for Onyx Productions ‘360 Allstars - Urban Circus’, a live theatre stunt show with a world record holding all-star cast. The show toured Australia wide with over 76 performances in large theatres and entertainment centres and continued its success in Germany with a near sold out 25 show tour. The show continues to tour internationally.
After 8 months on the road, Sam returned home November, 2013 for a special live performance at one of the prestigious TEDxtalks at The Octagon Theatre, leaving his audience in “an hypnotic state of awe”.
With no rest Sam jumped into the making of his new performance. The World Is.. - a non-stop vocal soundscape performed live to a projected cinematic film adventure directed by Brendan Joel. The show premièred at Perth’s FRINGEWORLD Festival in February 2014, selling out all nights, taking home a 4 star review from The West Australian & the FRINGEWORLD Music Award of 2014.
Fast forward to 2018, Perry won the seventh season of The Voice Australia, and is currently working on brand new music and touring Australia and, of course, Splore 2019!
