Vocal loop artist Sam Perry, who was mentored by Kelly Rowland, is the most recent winner of The Voice Australia.

Perry's time in the competition was a lil' bit controversial last year after Boy George called him "a DJ", before stating, "It's called The Voice, not The Technology."

Nevertheless, Sam dominated the public's votes and took home the title and recording deal.

His winning single 'Trust Myself' reached No. 78 on the ARIA charts.

Towards the end of 2018 the singer commenced a tour around Australia, titled "Not A DJ".

This year he has continued to play shows and even recently caught up with Boy George at The Logies.
