Really appreciate J.P. Squire's coverage of my upcoming dates in BC.
Excerpt from The Kelowna Daily Courier
It’s been said what is old is new again.
So it should come as no surprise that Luke McMaster has produced a new album called Icons of Soul, Vol 1, thanks to two R&B masters.
The Canadian singer-songwriter is best known for Good Morning, Beautiful, his 2013 Top 3 Billboard AC smash hit with new age pianist, Jim Brickman, and his impressive Canadian gold album run as a duo with Rob James in McMaster & James (Thank You, Love Wins Everytime). Reviewers often referrred to the latter as the ‘Canadian Hall & Oates.’
McMasters’ latest album is the result of his recent collaboration with Motown’s legendary Lamont Dozier, writer/producer of 54 no. 1 hits (Love Is Like A Heat Wave, I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) and You Can’t Hurry Love) and Rascals’ founder Felix Cavaliere (Good Lovin’, Groovin’ and People Got to Be Free). McMaster covered some of their classics and wrote new music with these Rock and Roll and Songwriters’ Hall of Fame inductees.
