You might have recognised a familiar face (and voice) from Illawarra on last night’s episode of The Voice.

The latest instalment of the singing competition’s blind auditions process featured NSW indie roots artist Timothy James Bowen, who stunned both judges and viewers.

The younger brother of Aussie actor and singer Clare Bowen (who rose to fame in US drama series Nashville), the local artist made all four judges - Guy Sebastian, Delta Goodrem, Kelly Rowland and Boy George - turn around with his cover of Bonnie Raitt’s I Can't Make You Love Me.

We're not crying, you are 😭 What a beautiful performance.

Since fighting and overcoming end-stage cancer in 2016, Bowen has established himself as a formidable solo artist, being named as an APRA Development Award finalist in 2017 and then being nominated in the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition in 2018 with Anchor and again last year with Sing.

Bowen also performed his latest single, The Greatest Thing, on The Voice last night.

Another familiar face graced The Voice last night too, with Guy Sebastian’s brother, Chris, making his return after originally appearing on season one of the singing competition back in 2012.

Speaking with The Music back in 2016, the Aussie singer-songwriter said his stint on The Voice season one was “a crappy experience” and that he didn’t want to do the show in the first place.

It seems things are going his way this time around:

A familiar face with an incredible Voice 🙏

The Voice’s return has proved a huge success for Channel 9, with 953,000 viewers tuning in last night, after a huge debut on Sunday night, which brought in 1.01 million viewers.

The theme continues tonight with The Voice airing from 7.30pm, while Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince - which marks the fourth anniversary of the music legend’s passing and features tributes from Mavis Staples, Foo Fighters, Beck, St Vincent, John Legend and more - will run at 9.00pm.
