Luke’s signature pop sound fuses early soul with contemporary R&B
Luke McMaster has been thrilling audiences with his unmistakable, soulful tenor since his early days on the music scene as one half of the gold-selling Canadian pop duo, McMaster & James. He made his first big mark as a solo artist in 2013 with his hit song "Good Morning Beautiful", co-written with multi-Platinum American and Grammy-nominated recording artist, Jim Brickman, which charted #3 on Billboard AC while remaining top 20 for 15 weeks. That same year Luke was named BellMedia “Emerging Artist” for “Good Morning Beautiful”.
As a songwriter, McMaster has multiple credits for notable artists such as Rihanna, Nick Lachey (98 Degrees), Jesse Labelle, Eva Avila and Marc Jordan, with numerous placements and projects for film and TV.
In Luke's latest project, ICONS OF SOUL, he's taken the Motown influence that has always imbued his music, to a new level. ICONS uniquely marries contemporary songwriting with legendary hit songwriters including Felix Cavaliere (The Rascals) and Lamont Dozier (responsible for countless hits for The Supremes, The Fourtops, Marvin Gaye, and more)
