Our #mancrushmonday this week is musician and all around awesome dude Devon Lougheed from Altered by Mom!

Born to make music, Devon has done his time in the indie music industry, playing in bands Hey Ocean! and beekeeper before starting Altered by Mom. A worldly and musical human, Devon has played stages at SXSW, Reeperbahn, Big Sound Australia, Osheaga, and Live at Squamish, among many others, with Hey Ocean! as well as his other band Smashing Satellites. When he’s not rocking stages all over the world, Devon helps others make awesome music as a writer, producer and musician. His collaborations and projects have been featured on commercial and satellite radio as well as the CBC.  Take a listen (and a share!) of Altered by Mom’s EP Body Feels Weird below!

Talented, handsome and super cool to boot, we definitely qualify Devon as very crushworthy. Read his answers on love and romance below!

What is your definition of romance?

Distinct individuals coming together to make life the best for all involved… oh wait, I mean the butterflies I get in my stomach when I’m about to see you (yes you!).

What’s your instant deal breaker?

Taking yourself too seriously! No wait, it’s vaping. Definitely vaping (sorry bros and bro-ettes).

What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?

I have pretty insane “talent goggles” so one of the first things I notice about a potential love interest is their voice/instrument skills/on-stage persona.

What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?

My great-grandfather used to take multiple ladies out in a night because “everyone who wants to dance deserves to dance”. Pretty good love AND life advice there!

What’s the strangest thing you have ever done to get a love interest’s attention?

I once did a sketch comedy bit that was mostly a techno song about mandarin oranges just to get a total cutie to come to my studio and record the lines “they’re so easy to peel” in a sultry voice.
