Most of us are fortunate enough to just turn on a faucet to access life’s most essential ingredient: clean water. But for many people, access to something so basic is difficult.

The Story So Far

Astronomer hopes to use the power of music to heal and uplift as many people as they can. By their commitment to authentic artistry, Astronomer works to inspire you, and they invite you to join them in their mission of musical revolution.

Raise up the oppressed. Stand against injustice. Unite the humyn family.
Astronomer: a person devoted to uncovering the secrets of the universe. 

Alex Bullen, or Alilieo Alilei, plays drums for Astronomer. He is also a producer and the main arranger of the group. Throughout the journey of developing the sound and musical identity of the band, Astronomer has fluctuated from being a minimalist quartet to a twelve-piece monster complete with horn section, percussion and back up vocalists. Alex is responsible for creating demos, backing tracks, and complex scores for all of Astronomer's players. 

Luke Paron is a singer, songwriter, and percussionist for Astronomer. Luke met Alex at Humber College Lakeshore, where they majored in drums and completed their Bachelor of Music degrees. Luke is a musical and lyrical contributor to the group, and with the absence of a melodic instrument to play, he writes all his songs in his head. 

Scott Samuel is a singer, songwriter and guitarist for Astronomer. Scott and Luke have played in bands together since they were 11 years old. Scott is a musical and lyrical contributor to the group. 

​Aidan Farrell is an independent singer-songwriter based out of Toronto. Once being Astronomer's back up vocalist and principle hype-womyn, Aidan has decided to take on the new challenge of singing lead vocals alongside Luke and Scott. Aidan has recently completed her Bachelor of Music at Humber College Lakeshore. She is a musical and lyrical contributor to the group.

Since its first conception, Astronomer has had many different combinations of players, musicality and ultimate concept. In light of the state of affairs in the world today, they have decided to be a force for positivity, truth and empowerment. Astronomer strives to take everything that is the groove, harmony and style of R&B and pop and direct it towards the purpose of uplifting people. Hence, "Purpose Pop"
