Singer Stellar Perry
by Stephanie Williams
Singer Stellar Perry battled it out in the grand final of The Voice as a contestant on Team Delta. We had a quick chat with Stellar ahead of her big night.
Where in Hobart are you from?
I was born in Hobart (at Calvary hospital) and moved away around 2007ish. I was raised in Rosetta by mum Mum and two older sisters.
What do you love to do when you get back here?
I love to see my family and eat food that Mum (Vicki), Dad (Aris) or my sister Tash makes. They’re all great cooks!! I enjoy walking my sister’s dogs with my nieces and nephews. I get back a few times a year…the last time was for Tash’s birthday in December. I’m getting very homesick now…it’s been too long!
How did you get started in music?
I loved singing as a kid and would put on shows for my mum. By the time I was 11 or 12 I started singing lessons with Lou Lincoln. Mum bought be an old second hand piano, so I started writing around then too. It morphed pretty quickly into competitions, bands and choirs….anything I could sink my teeth into. I went to Ogilvie High and have a lot of great music themed memories there.
Where did you enjoy performing here?
I remember gigging all around Hobart…I was in a band called Yoda for most of it and then joined my mates in his band Oscar. We played at Mayfair Tavern, Isobar, Club Surreal, Irish Murphy’s etc. All having different names now I’m sure!
"The bonds that I have formed with the other artists and Delta are absolutely life changing."
What has been your highlight of your Voice experience?
The bonds that I have formed with the other artists and Delta are absolutely life changing. Getting to connect with kindred hearts from around the world. Finding my people that resonate with me and are wanting to come along for the ride to learn, grow and laugh together….through my favourite thing in the world, MUSIC. Also singing in gowns made for me on sets that were designed and tailored to my brand. INCREDIBLE/UNBELIEVABLE!
How can we get behind you for the Grand Finale on Sunday night?
Please head to nine.com.au/thevoice or my Instagram. Everyone has three votes and it’s free! I hope I do you all proud. I will always have a Tassie shaped heart and can’t wait to come home for a visit.
Once The Voice is over, what will you be doing next?
Releasing music….and so much more. I have some really exciting projects I’m working on that involve one on one interactions with people, holding live seminars and webinars that focuses on finding your voice, inner work through song and music. There is so much I want to do…but it’s all based around music and giving back to the people that need it! Stay tuned people and be sure to follow my Instagram @stellarperry to join me on this adventure! Xoxox
