The next teenage heartthrob is here! Our exclusive interview with Andrew Lambrou, a 17-year-old rising star from Sydney, Australia, will leave you swooning over his good looks and his charming voice.
With over 53k followers on Instagram, and over 5k subscribers on YouTube, as well as over 200k views, this young star is on his way to rock our world!
Lambrou is not only Australian, but he comes from a Greek background. Quite the dream mix, huh ladies?
The young star tells us that he was known as the “fat kid” at school, but “that only gave [him] the drive to make positive changes in [his] life.” This drive not only pushed him to focus on his health and wellbeing (as seen in his Instagram pictures), but it also allowed him to enjoy cooking (and it doesn’t get any better than this, ladies). He tells us that when he is not singing or writing songs, he is either playing basketball or watching ‘Game of Throes,’ amongst other interests.
Not only has Lambrou been playing the piano from a young age, but he also won his first singing competition at the age of six. He performed “Doe A Deer,” and unsurprisingly, the judge had told him that he had a “perfect pitch.” Now that’s talent, ladies and gentlemen.
When we asked him about what made him realize that music is his calling, the young star simply said that he just knew from a young age that he was born to sing, and that it is something that he can’t explain because “it just comes from within.”
Lambrou told us that his music is inspired by the life experiences surrounding him. He admits that he has a lot to experience at his very young age, but he hopes that he can put “pen to paper for everyone to embrace.” We see the same pattern in the music of those who inspire him like Sam Smith, John Legend, Nick Jonas, Pentatonix and Ed Sheeran. Lambrou also told us that like his inspirations, his music is emotionally engaging and it connects him to his listeners. To him, “it is really important that you feel the music and understand the message of the song.”
The young star covered some of the most popular songs on his YouTube channel, but he is currently working on his own songwriting, which he will be sharing with the rest of us when “the time is right,” and we can hardly wait!
And like many of our favorite singers, Lambrou is trying to juggle more than one thing at a time. He tells us the despite mainly focusing on his music, he “understand[s] the importance of having a strong work ethic and drive to succeed.” The young star is not willing to neglect his schooling, but he believes that balance is possible in order to achieve his dreams.
As of late, Lambrou has performed at various charity events and local concerts. He is currently working on exciting projects that he hopes to share with the rest of us soon. Additionally, Lambrou is overwhelmed by the wonderful support he had received on Instagram from his fast-growing following. His dream of being an international star is within reach, and we can hardly wait to see his name everywhere in the near future.
