As the guitarist and lead vocalist of 5 Seconds of Summer, 18-year-old Luke Robert Hemmings is obviously the most popular among the members of the 5 Seconds of Summer Australian boy band.
It was Luke who first made covers of songs of various artists on YouTube under his account name ‘hemmo1996,’ with 1996 being the year of his birth.
Luke first uploaded the video song cover of “Please Don’t Go” by Mike Posner on February 3, 2011. Subsequently, Michael and Calum, who also went to the same school with Luke at Northwest Christian College in Riverstone, South Wales, Australia, joined him and they formed 5 Seconds of Summer. They added Ashton on December 3, 2011 and thus completing their four-person band.
The group made it big as YouTube celebrities after posting videos of themselves rendering songs from various artists. Their ticket to fame however came from One Direction when the British boy band invited them to perform on their “Take Me Home Tour” in 2013.
In February last year, 5 Seconds of Summer successfully released their single “She Looks So Perfect” which topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the UK. Four months later, their self-titled debut album was released and also made in to No. 1 in 11 countries. Less than five months down the road, they released their live album called “LIVESOS.”
