Luke Hemmings

As the lead vocalist of 5 Seconds of Summer, 27-year-old Luke Hemmings has sold millions of records, toured the globe numerous times, accumulated billions of streams, and become one of Australia’s most successful musical exports. As a solo artist, Luke has turned his creative process inward, finding a place for self-discovery, exploration, and experimentation. The first result of which was his critically acclaimed debut solo EP, When Facing The Things You Turn Away From, released in 2021 and lauded “equal parts mesmerizing and immersive” by Rolling Stone.

Recorded in New York with Grammy-nominated producer Sammy Witte (Maggie Rogers, Harry Styles, Freya Ridings), his next project, boy, is scheduled for release this April. The EP is a result of continued introspection into maturity and humanity paired with the influence of LCD Soundsystem, My Bloody Valentine, The Verve, and Cocteau Twinsculminating in a body of work highlighting both Luke’s personal evolution and his craft as a songwriter. The first glimpse of that can be heard in the layers of loneliness explored on just-dropped single ‘Shakes‘. 2024 is a year of growth for Luke with lots more to come soon.

“Self-assured and confident. There’s an excitement brewing beneath the surface. It’s as though his strings have been cut and as a musician, Luke is moving freely for the first time”

“The musical result is one that is equal parts mesmerizing and immersive.”

“Like a wave, every song on the record feeds into the next, and what emerges is a complex and tender portrait of a person coming to terms with the extent of his reality and all the gaps that’ve been missing.”
