As a young classical guitarist, he garnered a number of musical accolades including four consecutive Royal Conservatory of Music gold medals, a number of first place gold medals at Performing Arts BC, a finalist for the renowned Kay Meek scholarship Competition, and a national finalist at the Canadian Music Competition, among others. Luan has won the CanFor scholarship in conjunction with the Vancouver International Jazz festival, the Galaxie Rising Star award for jazz performance with the Ottawa Jazz Festival, the Ted Quinlan guitar award and the Dave Stillwell composition award among others. Luan is active in a variety of jazz, improvised, and creative projects. He leads the Luan Phung Quintet and Trio, co-leads the avant trios Mirapolis and Surf Grizzlies and has performed and recorded in a number of groups in Toronto including the Jeff LaRochelle Group, Luis Deniz quartet, Tova Kordonne’s The Thing Is, Dan McCarthy’s Songs of the Doomed, BADBADNOTGOOD, and Yamantaka//Sonic Titan.
