Calum Hood is a young musician, one of the founders of the “5 Seconds of Summer” pop-punk and pop-rock band. Calum Hood date of birth is January 25, 1996. Together with Luke Hemmings and Michael Clifford (the group musicians) he attended Norwest Christian College. The guy is not Asian. He is Scottish and Kiwi (New Zealand).
Who was the first of the Norwest College guys who suggested to perform and record covers for the popular songs is difficult to say today. Meanwhile, Calum Hood, Luke Hemmings and Michael Clifford placed their first recorded song on Youtube in 2011 (February). At the end of the year the drummer Ashton Irwin joined the boys and soon the group started to perform. Now there are four “5SOS” members. If the the band career start was made in social nets, today musicians are popular through their big tours in London and world tours of the group. Each of the musicians affirms he could perform separately, and Calum Hood as well, but for today the young bassist is a part of the “5SOS”.
Awards of the group
The first album of the group “5 Seconds of Summer” was on the top of musical charts of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Spain, Italy, Denmark, the Netherlands. In August 2014 “5SOS” won twice Teen Choice Awards and became “The best budding artist” and “Best Group of the summer”. In August it won MTV Video Music Awards for the lyric video for the song “Do not Stop”. Most of the songs performed by the group are written by Calum.
MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow, 2014 was the next success of the band. The group was called the “best performers in Australia and New Zealand”, the “Breakthrough of the Year”, and “The best among the new artists”.
Since the guy has been very popular there were many rumors that this or that girl (mostly, famous sure), was his lover. Recently Jennifer Phipps was called Calum Hood’s girlfriend. However, the group bassist has refuted these rumors. He told everybody that all of the band boys are free and do not have any relationships. It might be a kind of a PR decision: celebrity should “belong” to all, not to one single person. Probably the guy is too young to confirm his serious relationship. The time will show.
