“This was one of the most amazing and memorable experiences I have encountered. We weren’t sure what to expect – we now don’t understand why Sam isn’t a household name in Australia – his talent is undeniable. 10/10 – the best Fringe act I have experienced!” – Andrew Zombel
“Sam Perry has a voice of his own… his sound is rich with harmonies and he has enough grime to turn heads and rock an epic party” – dub FX
“An astonishing performance by loop artist Sam Perry allowed the audience to see how live looped vocals can be expertly laid together to produce a music track using nothing but the voice. Possibly the best way to illustrate live beatboxing I’ve seen to date.” – Rachel Davidson – Fringe Review
