South Coast resident Timothy James Bowen goes into battle on Monday night's episode of The Voice.
The singer-songwriter, who grew up in Minnamurra but now calls Ulladulla home, won his way onto The Voice by singing a version of Bonnie Raitt's I Can't Make You Love Me.
The performance impressed the judges, with all four of them turning their chairs.

Judge Delta Goodrem described it as "one of the best male vocals" she'd heard in a blind audition on the show.
Despite that high praise from Goodrem, Bowen opted to join Guy Sebastian's team and, on Monday night, the mentor is putting the singer-songwriter into battle against one of his team-mates.
Bowen is the brother of Nashville star Clare Bowen and has written song for the US TV series.
Filming of The Voice was put on hold due to COVID-19 and has only recently started filming again.
Bowen said he used the downtime to practice and prepare for his return to the stage.
"I've been working really hard for the past couple of weeks on my own music in preparation for the show, and just getting as much done as possible before everything kicks off," he said after winning his blind audition.
The Voice airs on Nine, 7.30pm on Monday.
