Thank you to J.P Squire for covering the the show last night for the Kelowna Daily Courier!
Canadian singer-songwriter Luke McMaster is said to have mastered “the sound that has become one of the most significant musical accomplishments and stunning success stories of the 20th century.” His stunning R&B/soul concert at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country could have been labelled a tribute or nostalgia performance. It was anything but.
Consider his history.
McMaster has recorded a succession of EPs and albums (2008’s Time EP, 2013’s All Roads, Heart of Soul from 2014 and 2016’s Trending) that contained both originals and sensual interpretations of such favourites as Stevie Wonder’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours), Roberta Flack’s Feel Like Makin’ Love and the Bee Gees’ How Can You Mend a Broken Heart.
The final piece to the puzzle was his collaboration with Motown’s legendary Lamont Dozier, writer/producer of 54 No. 1 hits and Rascals’ founder Felix Cavaliere.
