Ever heard of 5 Seconds of Summer (5SoS)? Oh! Maybe you also thought that you are an extended member of the All Boys Band One Direction. You are not alone in this. I thought so too. Anyway, 5SoS is a four-piece popular Australian pop-rock band formed in 2011. However, one of the members who seem to have stolen the hearts of many millions of fans is the rhythm guitarist and lead singer Luke Hemmings.
He is one of the founding members of the band and leads the fortunes of the group, which has gained over 2 million subscribers on its YouTube channel. We just can’t get enough of their songs, maybe because they are sung by Luke, whose voice has a way of penetrating the heart and living there. Singles like The Girl Who Cried Wolf, She Looks So Perfect, Kiss Me, Beside You are just a few of his numerous releases with vocals.
Luke Hemmings Bio, Age
The guitarist was born on July 16, 1996, in Sydney, Australia, the son of his father Andrew and the mother of a math teacher, Liz Hemmings. His birthmark is cancer, and he has two older brothers, Ben (born 1992) and Jack (born 1993), with whom he likes to spend time. He attended Norwest Christian College, where the band group was formed with his three like-minded friends.
He started uploading YouTube videos of himself singing on his channel hemmo1996 in 2011 and eventually formed the 5SOS band group with his two friends (Michael Clifford and Calum Hood) at the college that same year. His first contribution, the cover of the song Please Don’t Go by Mike Posner, was released on February 13, 2011. The band’s fourth summer runner-up (member), Ashton Irwin, joined them in December 2011, bringing their total to four.
The band quickly gained fame in Australia, but their connection to worldwide fame came when they were noticed by the British boy band One Direction, with whom they toured the world. They have their own record label, Hi Records, and have released two studio albums, with Luke playing a key role in their recording. Luke released two EPs in 2012, Unplugged and Somewhere New with 5 Seconds of Summer, and they received the American Music Award for New Artist Title in 2014 and two nominations for the Billboard Music Award in 2015.
Since then, the 5SoS have made waves with their releases and their debut single She Looks So Perfect, which topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the UK. Their debut album of the same name reached number 1 in 11 countries, while their second album sold out around 1 million copies worldwide.
You wonder what or who his musical influences are? Don’t be surprised anymore. The young man with the overwhelming voice mentioned that his influences are both classic rock bands and 90s pop-punk bands like Blink-182.
Luke currently lives in Los Angeles.
Luke Hemmings Girlfriend
The fans’ favorite, Luke Hemmings’ private life, especially his dates and appointments, became a major concern of his fan base after the riot that accompanied his separation from his then-girlfriend Arzaylea Rodriguez.
Arzaylea is a Texas-born Instagram star who was born in October 1994 and is said to have gained a larger following in social media through her association with Luke. The two reportedly met at Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party and began dating sometime in April 2015. Their relationship attracted a lot of attention after it turned out that she had been cheating on Luke Hemmings with another musician, Blackbear, for the entire time she was with Luke. Disgusting, isn’t it?
Of course, she defended herself by claiming that she had put up with more in the relationship than she should have and needed a break. She also accused Luke of using drugs, hiring escorts, and even cheating. But his fans didn’t want to hear about it, not after what she had done to her person. By April 2017, the two were no longer an issue.
However, before the Instagram star came on board, there were rumors that the 5SoS singer was dating several other girls. These included Hailey Baldwin, Aleisha McDonald, Lauren Jauregui, Sara Ellen, but their pairings were never confirmed. After his separation from Arzaylea, he was seen with a number of ladies, including Justin Bieber’s ex, Sahara Ray.
More recently, there has been speculation about him and the beauty queen, Nadia Mejia, after they were spotted holding hands. Yes, they were just holding hands, but Luke is the kind of man who for some reason would not hold hands. The person whose hand he’s holding must be someone special.
