Luke Austin

Some voices are unmistakable – their character is immediately identifiable to those that know them, and intensely intriguing to those that don’t. These voices may not be technically perfect, but they catch you, compelling you to listen. One great voice belongs to 21-year old Toronto native Luke Austin. His whiskey-soaked purr on debut single “Dance The Night Away” is as warm and sexy as a summer night, and it only improves with repeat listens.

Catch him live in Toronto at the Rivoli on June 14 while you wait for his album “The Desert” to drop later this spring. This is one rising artist we’ll be excited to say you heard here first!

1. What is your hometown?

Toronto, Ontario

2. With what fictional character do you most identify?

Dewey Cox… Luke Austin thinks about his entire life before he goes on stage….

3. In the movie of your life, cast an actor to play you.

Joaquin Pheonix! If he can play Johnny Cash, he can play me any day of the week.

4. What work of art speaks to your soul?

“The Jack Pine” by Tom Thomson. I had a chance to visit Thomson’s grave in Algonquin Park. It was then when I understood why Thomson painted Canadian landscape.

5. What books are you currently reading or recommending?

Area 51 conspiracy books, and songwriting for dummies….

6. What song or album is currently in heavy rotation on your iPod?

Currently listening to a ton of The Arcade fire’s “The Suburbs”.

I think it’s a great record because it’s individual, original and it’s themes expatiate upon a artistic trend of urban decay which has become part of the zeitgeist.

7. What’s the last movie that made you cry?

I don’t cry but If I ever was going to cry at a movie it would at “My Dog Skip”

8. Cat person or dog person?


9. What is more important, truth or kindness?

Truth. Kindness wouldn’t be true kindness without truth.

10. How do you define sin?

Molestation, Terrorism and excessive use of auto tune

11. How do you define virtue?

Virtue is having a personality trait that is fundamentally good.

12. Design your headstone: What does it say? What does it look like?

I would have a modest tombstone and my epitaph would state:

“Be Loving hopeful and optimistic and we’ll change the world”

-Jack Layton

Bonus Question: Who would you like to see answer these questions?

Dallas Green
