Lakyn is a Melbourne based singer-songwriter. Drawing his influences from Bob Dylan, Wu-Tang Clan and Frank Sinatra along with modern masters like Bon Iver, Lakyn is an inexhaustible songwriter and devoted guitar player.
With his roots steadily bound to the skating community in Melbourne and Auckland (where he was born and raised), Lakyn first delved into the world of music after a broken ankle kept him off his board for 8 months. Sharing covers of well-known tracks by Frank Ocean, Carly Rae Jepsen and Ed Sheeran on his YouTube page, Lakyn now over 60,000 subscribers and over 8 million views to date.
After a huge Tuesday residency last year, Lakyn returns to the Gas for 2 sets on Friday 29th January.
