MUSICIANS were out to impress a finalist from the last season of The Voice at yesterday’s Henty field days.
Nick Kingswell visited the region to judge the annual Voices@Henty talent contest at the field days, before performing.
The Sydney-based musician said he was excited to see what the country had to offer.
“I absolutely have no doubt there will be a lot of talent here,” he said.
“They will just be coming out of the woodwork and singing what they feel and I can’t wait to listen.”
Kingswell said it was an honour to be invited to judge the competition.
“I didn’t realise how big the event was,” he said.
“It’s a great atmosphere and I love the Australian culture down here.”
The 26-year-old has worked with Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, Lee Kernaghan, Thirsty Merc, James Reyne and Jessica Mauboy.
Kingwell said he was a “country boy at heart”, growing up on Phillip Island.
“I’m just happy I can be a part of it and share music with other people.”
