Auburn musician releasing debut single

Auburn musician releasing debut single


Auburn musician Luke Mock will take his first step into a new "Universe" on Friday when he releases his debut single.

"Universe" was inspired by the thought of losing someone important to forces beyond your control, according to a press release. The song will be available on Apple, Amazon, Google, Spotify and other platforms.

The 18-year-old singer-songwriter counts Shawn Mendes, Nick Jonas and John Mayer among his influences. In an interview with The Citizen last year, Mock described his style as simply "modern."

"When I write songs, I never really have a style in mind," he said. "I get an idea and I put it to paper."

Mock has also been a longtime participant in local nonprofit music collective Perform 4 Purpose, helping it raise more than $200,000 for good causes. 

Though he's performed on YouTube during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mock is eager to return to the stage as soon as venues can open again.
